Why They Do Not Understand

But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. 1 Corinthians 2:14 New King James Version

When I was a tree planter we were living in tens in recently harvested forests about one hundred miles from the nearest town. The work is extremely difficult and the lifestyle is diametrically opposite of city social life. We had to work as a team, and become mature mentally. The camp became like a family.                                                                            

There was a two week break between the spring planting season and the summer.          

Many rookies could not wait to get back to their friends and family in the city.                

I would try to explain it to them that over a six week period they have changed. When they go home they will have nothing in common with their friends. When they try to explain to friends and family the work and lifestyle they will not understand. They will not understand because they have not lived the experience.                                          

When they went home it happened exactly as I explained and they could not wait to get back to the camp.                                                                                                                      

So too it is with Christians when they try to explain to non-Christians family and friends and co-workers why they have changes since becoming a Christian. They do not understand because they have not experienced Christ and it will seem like foolishness to them.                                                                                                                                    

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah KalEl (voice of God) for blessing me with speaking to my heart and bringing me into Your holy family. Please bless me with the wisdom, grace and meekness to explain to those who I know who are not a member of Your holy family he sweetness of Your divine love. If they refuse to listen please heal the hurt that it causes in my heart and give me the strength to endure their ridicule and mistreatment. I humbly ask this in the name of He who was rejected and ridiculed by His earthly family when He walked amongst us Jesus Christ. Amen.                                                                     

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.

As Christ is our King, so too are we His free will servants Joseph a son of Jehovah I have been a faithful servant of our Lord for the past forty years. He has led me to move from the farm to the city. It was there I learned natural medicine as well as to serve by doin volunteer work in a hospital. This was preparing me for the next stage of growth and service unto Him. The next phase was to live in a tent in the western provinces of Canada planting trees. It has here in His marvelous creation of nature that He taught me so much of Himself while serving others in camp as a first aid attendant. If anybody got sick or injured they always came to me. As well, I learned to be a big brother and care about their mental health and for most, it was the first time they were ever loved. This caring for others prepared me for the next step which was to be a teacher all over China. Here not only did my example guide many to our Heavenly King but also taught me how to deal with narcissist. This prepared me to come home to take care of a narcissistic mother while dealing with narcissist family members. It was in China that the Lord also guided me to become a Christian writer which has been faithfully done for the past ten years. I know not what will happen tomorrow but I know who holds tomorrow in His hands and it is Him I place my total confidence and trust in. Joseph a son of Jehovah
