Encouragement for Today
Some of us do love to talk! In doing so, we can become careless with words. “Sharing” can slip into gossip. Anger can flare into harsh words.
What if you considered every word you spoke as if it were a coin? Would you spend recklessly, never considering the consequences?
Or would you invest each coin (word) wisely, making sure your words would bring healing and love? The choice is yours … and the consequences could ripple into eternity, for better or worse, life or death
Laura speaks :-
As Christians we need to be careful how we talk or how we carry ourself. We should try to project God’s image as best as we can .
If we behave like the world , then there is no difference .We can go out and preach God’s words but what is words or faith without actions? If a man in need ,comes to you and you send him away saying God bless you and do not give him any food or clothes.That is faith without actions.
I am not perfect but I am trying to learn God’s way…
May God Bless everyone of us.Read Full Post | Make a Comment ( None so far )
I was reading the Life Application Bible yesterday and I would like to share what God said about wanting happiness.
Happy are those who long to be just and good,
For they will be completely satisfied.
Happy are the kind and merciful,
For they will be shown mercy.
Happy are those whose heart is pure,
For they shall see God.
Happy are those who strive for peace,
They shall be called the sons of God.
Happy are those who are persecuted because they are good,
For the Kingdom of heaven is theirs.
Jesus sermon on the Mount also known as the Beatitudes
I thought if one is contented, one would be happy.There are other conditions too.We need to be just , good, kind , merciful
and a pure heart to have happiness.
We should not have envy, jealous, hatred covetousness ,malice and unforgiveness or negative feelings inorder to have a happy life.

|Instead, invite the poor, the crippled, the lame, and the blind. Then at the resurrection of the righteous, God will reward you for inviting those who could not repay you.Luke 14:13–14

|What might it mean for you to “invite the poor, the crippled, the lame, and the blind” into your life? Do you tend to socialize only with those who are like you, who can pay you back in some way? Do you even know any “downtrodden” people? These are challenging questions for some of us! In addition to exhorting us to reach out to the unlovely, these verses also teach us to have an eternal perspective on all we do. When we live for eternity, the now shrinks into true perspective. When we please God rather than other people, we also gain a true perspective. From todayschristianwoman.com|
We should treat all alike and do more good to those who are in need or the unfortunate .We do everything without any strings attached or expecting anything in returns.Read Full Post | Make a Comment ( 1 so far )
