How Are You Looking Out?

GENTLE STREAM WINDING THROUGH FOREST

Let each of you look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others. Philippians 2: New King James Version

How much are you looking out for the interest of others?

How much do you mentor young people or those who are new Christians?

That does not mean we are to be judgmental or critical.

It means to teach them the correct way to behave like a Christian. It is not something that happens in a week or month. Sometimes it can take years.

We sometimes adopt wild cats. At first they are little tigers. It takes time to teach them to use the kitty litter and even more time to get them to trust us. After a while they are very affectionate and domesticated.

If that is true for wild cats how much more true is it for Christians that have only walked in the world?

People who won’t help others in trouble “because they got into trouble through their own fault” would probably not throw a lifeline to a drowning man until they learned whether he fell in through his own fault or not. Sydney J. Harris

Prayer: Please Jehovah Chanan (God is gracious) bless me to be a wise, gracious and meek mentor to all in Your holy family and to those who are open to becoming members of Your divine family. I humbly ask this in the name of He who sacrificed His holy place for my interest in becoming a member of Your sanctified family Jesus Christ. Amen

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

After faithfully serving the Lord in China for ten years as a teacher I have been called home to care for my aged mother who has numerous disabilities. As well I regularly do volunteer work visiting seniors in a seniors home. I love being in nature. I say the closer we get to nature the more we see Jehovah. We are blessed in this area with many amazing, easy to ride bicycle trails on old railroad lines that takes us all over Southern Ontario.
