Humility is the path to promotion

Proverbs 18:17 says,
"Any story sounds true
someone tells the other side
and sets the record straight."
This verse is important to keep in mind when dealing with our family members - especially children. We need to be careful not to jump to conclusions. We need to ask our loved ones their side of the story before we decide a matter.
This verse is also important when we are watching the news. Too often our opinions are formed (and then set in stone) by the person or news organization
where we first hear about
a certain topic, situation, event
or proposed bill to be voted on.

The majority of young adults say
Jesus is not the only way of salvation.
More than 60% of born again Christians in America between the ages of 18 and 39 believe that Buddha, Muhammad and Jesus are all valid paths to salvation and over 30% say they either believe that Jesus sinned just like other people when He lived on Earth or aren’t sure, according to a new study.
Think about it...
If there is another way - then Jesus didn't have to die.
August 29, 2021
Even the children of Christians
are turning away from the God of the Bible.
We must take the opportunity to teach our children and grandchildren about the Bible through reading Bible stories, showing Bible videos, memorizing Scripture, putting on the full armor of God and praying together with them. We must play Christian music around our house and show our little loved ones that we are serious about following Jesus.
It has never been harder to be a Christian in the U.S.A. and it is not easy for those around the world.
1 John 2:15 says:
Do not love this world
nor the things it offers you,
for when you love the world,
you do not have the love of the Father in you.

Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world,
but let God transform you into a new person
by changing the way you think.
Then you will learn to know God’s will for you,
which is good and pleasing and perfect.
Romans 12:2 NLT version
For those who come here regularly,
I have a new August 14 post below the next post.
August 15, 2021
(This was August 2 but I am reposting here.)
How can a person know if
he or she is going to heaven
when he or she dies?
Look to 1 John 2:4 - 6 for the answer....
"Someone may say, 'I am a Christian.
I am on my way to heaven;
I belong to Christ.'
But if he doesn't do what Christ tells him to,
he is a liar.
But those who do what Christ tells them to
will learn to love God more and more.
That is the way to know whether or not
you are a Christian.
Anyone who says he is a Christian
should live as Christ did."

We show honor and value to a person
when we focus on his or her strengths.
We show dishonor to a person
when we focus on his or her weaknesses.
On the rare times that God calls us
to come to a person and address his or her
weaknesses or sins,
we need to pray and get in the right mind-set
and then talk to the person in love and gentleness
by gently informing and not attacking -
and while avoiding anger and sourness in our tone.
In Matthew 7:1-5, Jesus gives us an illustration about
informing others of their sin and he uses a foreign object in
the eye to represent sin...
Jesus teaches us to first learn how to take foreign objects out of our own eye before we attempt to take the foreign objects out of our neighbor's eye......
When you take something out of your eye, you are gentle. God teaches us to be gentle when addressing the sins and weaknesses of others - as though we are picking out a foreign object from our own eye - that is gentle!
And those of us who have faced our own weaknesses and sins - and have worked on improving our Christian walk - know that WE need grace from people and grace & help from God. And therefore, at some point in our spiritual growth, we put two and two together and realize that we need to approach others in gentleness.
This is your wake up call if you have not realized that yet.
Yes, we have to confront (judge) others sometimes.

An Amazing Video
A woman thought
her first bridal dance was ruined.
But it wasn't.
She just needed to stay calm and not panic.
We who love Jesus are the Bride of Christ.
When awful things happen,
we can remember this video and realize that
Jesus our Bridegroom
can do the impossible
to fix our broken hearts
and messed up situations
if we give him time.
And the lyrics to the song
can inspire us to intentionally
dance through life
with joy -
dance like we've never been
hurt and we've never been sad.
We can listen to the lyrics and decide to dance
while we wait on Jesus to make things right.
Jesus doesn't want yesterday to ruin our today.
The groom had a surprise for his bride,
and Jesus has surprises for His Bride.

You created lush jungles of jade and arid deserts of gold.
You formed majestic mountains, and then you took scoops of brilliant white snow and topped their peaks.
You shaped multi-layered canyons and adorned them with copper-colored hues.
