A closer walk with our beloved friend.

What is Humble and Gentle?



Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love. Ephesians 4:2 New International Version.                                                                             

To be humble does not mean we are to allow ourselves to be societies doormats and allow them to walk all over us.                                                                                  

It also does not mean we are to belittle Jehovahs gifts to us (so say you have been blessed with great painting talents and someone compliments you on a piece of your artwork, instead of trying to say the work is not that good give credit to Jehovah for blessing you with this gift and share with others the commitment it take to be such a good painter).                                                                                                           

I know. I went through a time when others complimented my writing and I kept on giving credit to the Holy Spirit. Finally a Christian writer informed me that although it was obvious the Holy Spirit was directing my writing there was also some of me in the writing and that was a gift from God. To belittle that gift was an insult to Him. 

To be gentle is also a part of being patient.

 So, just as someone was gentle with us in teaching us to ride a bicycle so too are we to be gentle with those who are just beginning in their walk. That is for all aspects of life. Just think of the example you set when you encounter someone new at a job and you gently guide them into learning the ropes.  We are to bear each others burdens and sorrows so as to cement our Christian communities communion and to encourage others t join our holy family..                                                                    

Prayer: Please Jehovah Chanan (god is gracious) bless me with a gracious heart like Your most cherished son Jesus Christ. I meekly request this in His gracious name. .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
