Teaching by Example

Psalm 34 11

Verse of the Day: Psalm 34:11

Come, my children, listen to me; I will teach you the fear of the Lord.

 

The best gift we can give our children is to teach them to obey and follow the Lord which leads to wisdom, prosperity and a happy life. Teaching children to fear the Lord doesn’t mean they should be afraid of Him, it means they should respect Him and put Him first in their lives. Fear of the Lord requires awe, reverence, adoration, honor, worship, faith, trust, thankfulness and love.  We teach these to our children not just by word but by example. Share Jesus, the greatest gift of all, with your children.

Life is Not About Possessions

Luke 12 15

 

Verse of the Day:  Luke 12:15

Then he said to them, “Watch out! Be on your guard against all kinds of greed; life does not consist in an abundance of possessions.”

 

Christmas is exactly one month away and although it’s nice to be able to give our loved ones gifts it’s also a good time to remind ourselves that life is not about possessions.  People trying to get the newest car, the biggest house or the next big thing are never satisfied. The only thing that can ever satisfy your soul is Jesus!  Life is not about the material possessions you have it’s about having a relationship with the Lord.

I’m thankful for my salvation and for the relationship I have with my Savior.  Above all else, I’m thankful for God’s love, mercy, grace and forgiveness. I give thanks to you, Lord, with all my heart.

Happy Veterans Day!

Galatians 5 13.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  Galatians 5:13

You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love.

 

To all Veterans who have served our great nation in the United States Armed Forces:  We thank you for your service, honor you and respect you for all you have sacrificed for our freedom.  May God bless you always.

Jesus has set you free now the question is, what are you going to do with your freedom? The Bible says that instead of indulging in the flesh we should serve one another humbly in love.

Knowing and Trusting God

Psalm 9 10

 

Verse of the Day: Psalm 9:10

And those who know your name put their trust in you, for you O Lord, have not forsaken those who seek you.

The only way to know God is to seek Him with all of your heart.  Spend time with Him in prayer, read the Holy Bible, really make an effort to understand who He is.   The more you seek God in faith, the more you will come to know Him. The more you know Him, the more you will trust Him.  When you experience God’s love, grace and mercy for yourself you will come to completely trust in Him and realize that He is always there for you.

Honor One Another

Romans 12 10.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  Romans 12:10

Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves.

 

Let’s encourage each other by giving honor where honor is due.  Everyone needs to feel appreciated and we all know someone who deserves a little credit for everything they do.  There are many ways to honor someone who truly deserves recognition. It can be as simple as saying thank you, your kindness has not gone unnoticed or it can be something extravagant. The point is to recognize and encourage them.
