You Must Clothe Yourselves With

LOVING TO EACH OTHER

  Since God chose you to be the holy people he loves, you must clothe yourselves with tenderhearted mercy, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience. Colossians 3:12 Holy Bible, New Living Translation

There is too little of tender hearted mercy today. Tender hearted mercy means that our hearts ache when we see someone in need. We make a commitment to help them where they cannot help themselves (do not mistake that for refuse to help themselves. If drug addicts refuse to take the steps necessary to destroy the habit all you help is nothing more than a crutch to them which does not help them). This is not a one day event or token kindness like giving to the food bank (although there is nothing wrong with that) but rather a long term commitment.

So if there is a youngster that is having problems in life us older generation should come along side of them and offer them our experiences, both good and bad (yes it is good for the younger generation to hear of our failures to help them see that we were just like them).

We must exhibit kindness, especially to the elder generation. If a senior needs someone to cut their grass or shovel the snow from their driveway we are to offer to help them (be careful not to be abused though. Just because they are seniors does not mean they cannot be manipulative, indeed most seniors I know are very manipulative.

That is why it is so important to pray to Jehovah to guide you to where your help is appreciated).

We must be there to strengthen the weak when temptation comes a knocking at their door. We have all opened that door when we should not have from time to time so we know what they are going through.

Resolve to be tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving, and tolerant of the weak and the wrong. Sometime in life you will have been all of these. Lloyd Shearer

Prayer: Please Jehovah Heseh (God is love) bless this child of Yours to emulate Your love with all those I encounter today so as to be a light to guide them to the most incredible love affair there ever can be or will. I humbly request this in the name of He who showed His supreme love for me on the cross Jesus Christ. Amen

May the light of Christs love shine brightly in your heart today and every day

Will Cure More Sins Than

 The Lord is like a father to his children,  tender and compassionate to those who fear him. Psalm 103:13 Holy Bible, New Living Translation

You get more with the carrot than the stick. It is better to encourage someone than to tear them down and be a constant fault finder with them. I had far more success using this method as a teacher than any other.

When you are a constant fault finder, folks tend to lose ambition to improve. That makes them easy to control which is satanic.

Jehovah is very patient and compassionate (which means He is sympathetic towards our weaknesses and helps us overcome them) with us. Should we not be the same with others?

That does not mean we are to look the other way with their destructive lifestyle choices (like drugs) but are to help them (the operative word here is help. If they refuse to attempt to improve themselves than it is a waste of time trying to help them). To not hold someone accountable for their destructive lifestyles is not helping them, it is abusing them. It is abuse because we are not holding them accountable , to see the destruction in their lives and others and make not attempt to improve their lives.

To be compassionate is to help them leave that destructive lifestyle not to encourage them to continue in it. Yes, we need to be tender and compassionate but with a good dose of firmness ,when necessary, is needed in the equation as well.

“Compassion will cure more sins than condemnation.” Henry Ward Beecher

Prayer: Please Jehovah EL RACHUM (Merciful God) bless me to be merciful toward others as You are merciful unto me. I sincerely request this in the name of He whose merciful blood cleanses me of my sins Jesus Christ. Amen

May you be blessed with abundant joy in your heart filled with love and your life overflowing with laughter every day this year.

He Has Experienced Everything We Have.

                                                   

For we do not have a High Priest who is unable to sympathize and understand our weaknesses and temptations, but One who has been tempted [knowing exactly how it feels to be human] in every respect as we are, yet without [committing any] sin. Hebrews 4:15 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Have you ever tried talking with someone about a problem they have not experienced and listened to their advice. As you walk away you realize that was a huge waste of time.

Is it not great to know we have a high priest that has gone through everything we have so He perfectly understand when we come unto Him with our problems.

I know for me, He is the main man to go to with all of my problems.

Sometimes He will just step back and allow me to solve them myself because He knows I am capable of it so why be lazy and depend upon Him to fix my problems when I can do it myself.

Sometimes He leads to to righteous guidance councilors (which may be just a casual conversation that Jehovah has arranged for you to meet with).

But the best time of course is when I sit down and talk with Him one on one. Sometimes He answers with questions to get at the root of the problem and sometimes He guides me to Bible verse and the Holy Spirit explains what they mean.

Then the Holy Spirit and I work together as a tag team to conquer the problem.

I am so grateful not only that Christ bore my sins on the cross but also that He suffered from everyday problems so He understands and talks with me as my most confident friend (which He is). Because Jesus walked amongst us, He has experienced everything we have and so much more. That is why we can come to Him with our cares, because he has been there, because He cares. Joseph- Anthony: Green Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer:  Thank you Jesus Pyyrand (Jesus my best friend) for blessing me that You are always there, that You always care and that You always bless me with the best advice and help to resolve all of my problems.

In Your wonderful name I give thank. Amen.

 May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love fill your heart today and every day. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Let a Man Meet A.

Let a man meet a[ferocious] bear robbed of her cubs Rather than the [angry, narcissistic] fool in his folly. Proverbs 17:12 Holy Bible Amplified Version                                                           

Folly is described as: the state or quality of being foolish; lack of understanding or sense, a foolish action, practice and a costly and foolish undertaking. Another word for foolish is stupid.

A narcissist is described as  tending to derive gratification from admiration of one’s own physical or mental attributes.

Speaking from personal experience a narcissist does not love anybody or anything as much as they love themselves. They are always bragging about themselves and thrive on being the constant center of attention. They are very shallow and easily offended. When offended they become very cruel and constantly imagine the wicked manner in which the offender will pay with shame and humiliation. They take it to the extreme.

Beware of them.

Yes they can be dangerous, although most times they are not.

They have no sympathy for their victims and delight in watching them suffer. Whenever I encounter one and they share with me their wicked schemes I merely point out to them the folly of it in the consequences they will suffer far outweigh the satisfaction they will receive and I will have no part of it.

If I am the one they intend upon inflicting with their foolish perverted revenge I explain to them  with confidence and strength that there is a God in Heaven and He passes sentence that the wicked shall be punished seven times seven for their wickedness.

It shocks them. It is a coin toss how they will react.

Sometimes they will stay away in fear and sometimes they foolishly pursue their evil schemes. Yes sometimes they succeed but in the end it costs them far more than they gain when they suffer Jehovahs harsh mighty hand of justice.

Narcissist’s pretend to be strong but really are weak, stand up to them or they will bully you.

Pray for the Holy Spirit to be by your side and no narcissist can stand up to Him. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Machsi  (The Lord is my Refuge) for blessing me with the refuge of Your words and guidance to deal properly with all the narcissist’s that enter my life. I exalt You in the name of He who dealt harshest of all with these plagues upon society Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the gentle assurance of Jesus’ sweet love encompass you today and every day.
