A gentle answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger.
We have a choice in how we handle any situation and we have a choice in what comes out of our mouth. We can choose gentle words that turn away anger or harsh words that stir up anger. It may not always be easy but with the help of the Lord we can make the right choice.
Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.
Keep doing what the Lord has called you to do and do it with all of your heart. God will equip you and strengthen you to accomplish your purpose. The Lord sees everything you do and he won’t forget the love you demonstrate to his people, nothing you do for him is a waste of time or effort.
She opens her arms to the poor and extends her hands to the needy.
As Godly women who love the Lord it should be our mission to help the poor and needy. That doesn’t mean we all have to do extraordinary things. Sometimes it’s simply a kind word or a sincere gesture. Each of us should do what God puts in our hearts and do it with love.
Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
Through the sacrifice made by Jesus on Calvary, God made a way for you to be saved from death and be with him in heaven for all eternity. There is no other way to come to the Father, but through the Son. Not by works, merit, or personal sacrifices. Jesus is the only way, he is our Savior, and there is no other way.
So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.
God has given you gifts specific to the purpose he has for you. Your job is to figure out what you are passionate about and how to use those gifts to bless the world around you. Your goal should be to use up every bit of your gift so that the Lord is glorified.
I will praise you as long as I live, and in your name I will lift up my hands.
Prayer should begin with praise, acknowledging God for who he is, he is worthy of all praise. Focus your thoughts on him alone. Focus on his characteristics and what he means to you. Lift your hands toward your heavenly Father as you pray in Jesus’ name.
