What do we really know? What do we really see? Every day are we truly trying to be Christ-like, or at least treat people how we want to be treated? Love to all people in the holy precious name of Jesus Christ.
GOD BLESS US ALL!! As children we have been taught to idolize. We are taught words with definitions that are defined by those that seek a profit!! BUT, love them because even they were taught to teach that!! Lol! What is ugly, pretty, fat, skinny, smart, dumb, etc....??? They are all judgmental words we have learned. All opinionated! But as a child we had no interest in learning them. Being forced to learn them since kindergarten we are now in the land of the lost in mind, body, and spirit. So, when the eyes open we start to already live the lie, the sin, the course of destruction to ourselves and others. Many just pulling themselves along to just survive, pay bills, and take care of who they " love", but at the expense of others weaknesses. Those with weaknesses also love others, and try to take care of them and themselves. Let's be careful of what we are doing to one another. We may not be able to fully change this long lived perpetuated system called, " life/living". But those given the righteous eye to see this are the ones that must deliver the message at least once, and at the same time be a constant living example of the change this wisdom brings; this helps change some others. We are all destined to be in the level of faith we will be in. Some will get to see all levels of faith, some none, and some a few; but all are needed and can't exist without the other. We must love one another no matter what!! This is the highest form of living we humans can exist in. As JESUS said, " the greatest two commandments are to love the LORD with all your heart and love your neighbor!!"
Please pray the LORD's PRAYER and please read:
GOD BLESS US ALL,
“Here is a test to find whether your mission on earth is finished: If you’re alive, it isn’t.” ~ Richard Bach ~
Every day, I do as God has planned.
Hey J4L. Haven’t seen you around lately. Thought you maybe lost your password.
Thanks for these devotional thoughts.
You’re welcome. GOD is the one that gets the big thanks of course.
I have been around, but have alot of other responsibilities off of the computer. Here and there I post a reply.
Stay blessed. Knowing that the blessing is life. It’s the only thing we truly know.
AMEN! Because being alive is the blessing. More and more time to grow and change.
AMEN!! We all do. Let’s pray we do as HE has ordered.
Well frankly I raised my children to make right Judgements and that sometimes included specific vocabulary defining such.
Each parent determines what they impress on their children...and life isn’t just about loving because we live in a real world which is fallen and there are evil people who have no desire to change their ways....regardless of the word you use to describe them.
We make jusgements about who our children associate with as well as warn them of others...and rightfully so. As adults then they are equipped to know what is to be avoided for their safety.
We are not called to love everybody.....in the sense so many use the word love today....sometimes loving people is leaving them to their own vices and into Gods hands...that too is love.
Blessings to you, your family, and all people. The post GOD had me write said in it that we are all in different faith levels. Glad to hear where you are as of today.
Not to love everyone?? Leaving people to their own vices?? I agree we should “ shake the dust off our feet “ with some people, as JESUS says. But, we have to try first. This is the mission of the believer; to try in HIS holy name first.
18 As much as possible, and to the utmost of your ability, be at peace with everyone.
19 Never try to get revenge: leave that, my dear friends, to the Retribution. As scripture says: Vengeance is mine — I will pay them back, the Lord promises.
20 And more: If your enemy is hungry, give him something to eat; if thirsty, something to drink. By this, you will be heaping red-hot coals on his head.
21 Do not be mastered by evil, but master evil with good.
43 ‘You have heard how it was said, You will love your neighbour and hate your enemy.
44 But I say this to you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you;
45 so that you may be children of your Father in heaven, for he causes his sun to rise on the bad as well as the good, and sends down rain to fall on the upright and the wicked alike.
46 For if you love those who love you, what reward will you get? Do not even the tax collectors do as much?
47 And if you save your greetings for your brothers, are you doing anything exceptional?
48 Do not even the gentiles do as much? You must therefore be perfect, just as your heavenly Father is perfect.’
