LOVE THY NEIGHBOR

love-thy-neighbor

love-thy-neighbor

Is our neighbor more than the guy next door? Could he or she be someone in our community or almost anyone we meet? Could our enemies also be our neighbors? Jesus says that it’s so. But how can we love someone who acts hatefully toward us?

In Matthew 22:36-39, a lawyer challenges Jesus asking him, “Teacher, which is the great commandment in the Law?”

Jesus answers him saying, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the great and first commandment. And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself” (ESV).

Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the wicked, nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of scoffers; but his delight is in the law of the Lord, and on his law he meditates day and night. He is like a tree planted by streams of water that yields its fruit in its season, and its leaf does not wither. In all that he does, he prospers.

Peaceful Morning

peacefully-morning

The morning is the most magical part of the day. The whole world rises, the sun comes up, every flower and tree blossoms, the park is full of people jogging, taking a walk on the beach or walking their dogs. Students go to school, other people go to work or simply start working on their daily tasks. Our first thoughts have a huge impact on our mood and energy for the day. Choose good ones!!!

Psalm 143:8

Let me hear in the morning of your steadfast love, for in you I trust. Make me know the way I should go, for to you I lift up my soul.

Imagine enjoying a little early morning me time, writing a few pages, finishing your coffee before it got cold. Rushing to accomplish tasks is bad for the nervous system and the quality of our day...

New Year Resolutions

new-year-resolutions

The Bible doesn’t mention making resolutions at the beginning of a new year–but it does urge us to examine our lives regularly, and to seek God’s help to become better persons every day.

Some Resolutions to consider

  1. Engage with people more than technology.
  2. Take your soul seriously.
  3. Increase your kindness.
  4. Choose someone to forgive.
  5. In forgiving, include yourself.

Lamentations 3:40.

“Let us examine our ways and test them, and let us return to the Lord”

Every January, millions of people begin their year with New Year’s resolutions. Losing weight, getting organized (my email is a mess), exercising more, eating healthier, and managing finances better are some of the most common resolutions. But what about making spiritual New Year’s resolutions?

The Power of Patience

the-power-of-patience: I believe with patience and learning to be grateful for the less significant things surrounding our lives, this will brighten and contribute to a more fulfilling existence. We sometimes overwhelm ourselves by losing focus on the superior things that are happening in our daily lives. The mind will find answers if you relax and give it time. It is so easy to get swept away by impatient anxiety and the fear of everything falling apart! A gentle reminder that the answers will come, all in due time!

Galatians 6:9 | NIV

Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.

Proverbs 14:29 | NIV

Whoever is patient has great understanding, but one who is quick-tempered displays folly.
