As usual, God says it better than anyone.
Here’s what’s relevant this week. The scriptures are true and mark my words, they will play out. Some we are seeing right away, and some are lessons to be learned… hopefully not the hard way!
Proverbs 25: 8
Proverbs 25: 8
Do not go out hastily to argue your case; Otherwise, what will you do in the end, When your neighbor humiliates you?
Proverbs 16: 2, 22, 23, 25
All a person’s ways seem pure to them, but motives are weighed by the Lord.
Prudence is a fountain of life to the prudent, but folly brings punishment to fools.
The hearts of the wise make their mouths prudent, and their lips promote instruction.
There is a way that appears to be right, but in the end it leads to death.
Matthew 18: 33
Shouldn’t you have had mercy on your fellow servant just as I had on you?
2 Timothy 2: 24-26
And the Lord’s servant must not be quarrelsome but must be kind to everyone, able to teach, not resentful. Opponents must be gently instructed, in the hope that God will grant them repentance leading them to a knowledge of the truth, and that they will come to their senses and escape from the trap of the devil, who has taken them captive to do his will.
Galatians 6: 1-2
Brothers and sisters, if someone is caught in a sin, you who live by the Spirit should restore that person gently. But watch yourselves, or you also may be tempted. Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.
Ephesians 4: 1-3
As a prisoner for the Lord, then, I urge you to live a life worthy of the calling you have received. Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love. Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace.
John 13: 34-35
“A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”
