God does not command us to do things that He doesn’t do Himself.
Such as, “Don’t show favoritism.” James 2:1
And “Love your neighbor as yourself.” Matt 22:39
God loves His neighbors. He loves us as Himself :)
You are awesome God!!
You want to transform the world? Ok, step away from contempt and anger and cultivating lust.
You can’t just make a law of it, you must learn to step out of contempt and anger.
Discipline of solitude and silence.
Be a disciple of Christ, be trained by Him. There is no alternative to this, or else you will not transform yourself or the world.
I have a feeling that half-hearted prayers that do not move us, probably do not move God either.
The ways of right-living people glow with light; the longer they live, the brighter they shine.
During one of quiet times this week, I felt the Holy Spirit telling me that He has never left me. Even when I felt far or couldn’t sense His presence, He is always right next to me.
This is His promise to us:
Matthew 18:20 - And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,
teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”
Hebrews 13:5 - Keep your life free from love of money, and be content with what you have, for he has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.”
Thank You Lord for never giving up on us. Your love is unconditional and never failing. You have called us to do the same unto others.
Restaurant week @FFB. Tuna Tartar, Ahi Tuna Poke salad, Banana Pudding. Their sashimi is fairly fresh and def. better than at SP. But My favorite by far is the Banana Pudding Trifle😍 (Even though I had ordered the Coconut Pudding Cake the waiter gave me this instead…in a disposable coffee cup) But at least it’s delish. Overall 3.5 stars but banana pudding is a thumbs up!! 👍✨
