VerseD: 1 Corinthians 13:6

Love does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth.

1 Corinthians 13:6, ESV

We can feel self-righteous when we see others messing up and sinning, or we can find ways to justify sin. Love, however, obeys God and rejoices when we do well and right.

VerseD: James 1:19

Know this, my beloved brothers: let every person be quick to hear, slow to speak, slow to anger

James 1:19, ESV

We like to know we’re right, so it can be hard to hear out other people. But the God who hears our every prayer empowers us to want to hear the other side, to listen to our fellow image-bearers, even when we know they’re wrong, to show the grace of Christ.

VerseD: Romans 13:10

Love does no wrong to a neighbor; therefore love is the fulfilling of the law.

Romans 13:10, ESV

We strive to do what is best for our neighbors (anyone). The world tries to say it means no pain, but sometimes what is best comes through pain: like hearing you are in need of salvation.

VerseD: Lamentations 3:22-23

The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.
Lamentations 3:22‭-‬23, ESV

With all that is evil and wrong in this world, we can trust our faithful and loving God who controls and guides everything according to His will.

VerseD: Psalm 19:7-8

The law of the Lord is perfect, reviving the soul; the testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple; the precepts of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart; the commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes
Psalm 19:7‭-‬8, ESV

Our conscience confirms, the history and theology revealed in the Bible – the command to love God and others – states plainly there is right and wrong. Following God’s Law is what brings us true joy and salvation.

Weekend Words & Sunday Stanzas – 05/11/2014

IT IS MOTHERS’ DAY! HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY!

Remember, Proverbs 31 was written as advice from a mother, so go find some godly, maternal wisdom at Proverbial Thought!

The poem today is also fitting, as it talks about walking the right way. Parents are supposed to help guide their children, and that is exactly what God wishes to do with all of those adopted through the blood of His Son, Jesus Christ.

                    just off the path

they call it the straight and narrow

but just how well can we follow

what if in all of our attempts

just to the right or the left

is where it turns out we have

been in relation to the path

what if while we have been talking

with those with whom we are walking

only to come to realize

that our half truths are still lies

not really following Christ

but being just to the left or right

instead of walking just off the path

we should have our thoughts recast

we should line up our lives

with His loving heart and mind

to remain on the path of God

we must watch where our minds trod

we must study the scriptures

and look to our Savior

break bread with one another

and help our needy brothers

we need to pray continually

and praise our God Almighty

to stay on the Path of our King

we need to give Him everything
