Those Who Plan What is Good

20170531_193908

“It is a sin to despise one’s neighbor,

but blessed is the one who is kind

to the needy.

Do not those who plot evil go astray?

But those who plan what is good

find love and faithfulness.”

Proverbs 14: 21, 22

It’s interesting that these two verses are next to each other. God truly cares about our neighbors and we should too. Remember the two greatest commandments?

And I love the idea that there are blessings in caring for the poor. It’s my opinion, (just my opinion) that this includes providing health care, instead of trying to take it away.

Let us plan too, good things for ourselves and others.

Lord God please help us to be the kind, caring people You want us to be, including caring for the needy. Amen.

the world and all who live in it;

for he founded it on the seas

and established it

on the waters.”

Lord God everything You have made is magnificent. Help us to remember that everything is yours.

Help us to pray for one another and to remember that you have made us all.

Wisdom is Found

“Where there is strife, there is pride,

but wisdom is found

in those who take advice.”

Proverbs 13:10

Ever notice how you can trust someone that is humble enough to take advice?

Lord God, help us to listen, as you speak to us, through people we know and trust. Amen.

Out of the Same Mouth

20170317_130233

“All kinds of animals, birds, reptiles and creatures of the sea

are being tamed and have been tamed by man,

but no man can tame the tongue. It is a restless evil,

full of deadly poison. With the tongue we praise

our Lord and Father, and with it we curse

men, who have been made in God’s likeness.

Out of the same mouth come praise

and cursing. My brothers,

this should not be.”

 

James 3: 7-10
