“Always be humble and gentle. Be patient with each other, making allowance for each other’s faults because of your love.” Ephesians 4:2The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation
Humble means that you do not place yourself above nor below anybody. You are confident in who you are. As Christians we know we are Jehovahs children, Jesus Christs servants and The Holy Spirits students. As such we do not need to be people pleasers nor to be abusive to others.
Gentle means to be considerate, tenderhearted, and compassionate. This means we are to be considerate (which also means respectful ) to others.
Tenderhearted means we are to be encouraging to others going through rough times. Compassion means we are to help others where there is a need.
Tenderhearted is mental while compassionate is taking physical action.
Patient means we are slow to lose our temper when others are slow to catch on or when they are just slow ( read in traffic or in check out lines ).
We need to judge others by the same degree in which we desire to be judged.
No, that does not mean we are not to judge others but that we all have trait that are annoying, like smacking lips loudly while eating. That is what making allowance for each other’s faults because of your love means.
These are impossible without the aid of the Holy Spirits power in us.
Prayer: I beseech Thee Jehovah ELOHIM YAKOL (God, the Most Able 2 Corinthians 9:8 ) bless me to emulate my idol Jesus Christ in all of my interactions this day.
I beseech Thee my love to bless me with discernment to know when I am being abused and take the proper course of action to stop it while behaving in a Christ like manner.
Por favor my Love bless me with the Holy Spirits guidance, strength and respect towards all that come my way this day. In the name of His with whom I so deeply desire to emulate in every aspect of my life I humbly request this, Jesus Christ. Amen
May you be blessed with The Holy Spirits guidance, power and love in all of your interactions this day. Joseph a son of Jehovah.

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
