KEYWORDS: god; holyspirit; jesus; peace
To all.

Be humble in front of authority and their will be an award for thee in heaven.

Please pray the LORD's PRAYER and please read:

1 TIMOTHY 6:1-10

1 All those under the yoke of slavery must have unqualified respect for their masters, so that the name of God and our teaching are not brought into disrepute.

2 Those whose masters are believers are not to respect them less because they are brothers; on the contrary, they should serve them all the better, since those who have the benefit of their services are believers and dear to God. This is what you are to teach and urge.

3 Anyone who teaches anything different and does not keep to the sound teaching which is that of our Lord Jesus Christ, the doctrine which is in accordance with true religion,

4 is proud and has no understanding, but rather a weakness for questioning everything and arguing about words. All that can come of this is jealousy, contention, abuse and evil mistrust;

5 and unending disputes by people who are depraved in mind and deprived of truth, and imagine that religion is a way of making a profit.

6 Religion, of course, does bring large profits, but only to those who are content with what they have.

7 We brought nothing into the world, and we can take nothing out of it;

8 but as long as we have food and clothing, we shall be content with that.

9 People who long to be rich are a prey to trial; they get trapped into all sorts of foolish and harmful ambitions which plunge people into ruin and destruction.

10 'The love of money is the root of all evils' and there are some who, pursuing it, have wandered away from the faith and so given their souls any number of fatal wounds.

14 Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.

15 Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.

16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.

>"Be humble"

I only recently have become aware of just how important this is.

Everyone has heard of being in a blind rage or blinded by hate. Pride, has the same effect as hatred. It blinds.

I think it's a denial/coping mechanism we employ out of the terrifying reality of being a created being in a created space.

Man up! Face reality. Praise G_d!!!

For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.

If we give it to the LORD, then it’s a lot easier. Because HE truly knows how hard it can be and makes it a whole lot easy when we cast it on HIM.
