Thank You Readers in Faith

thank you for reading

 

Acts 15:31

 When they read it aloud, the people rejoiced at its encouragement.

 

I was sitting at the computer working on my blogs when I realized it has been quite an eventful beginning of the year. I realized that now I have regular readers to my blogs and they look forward to my posts. That is quite a notion.

I never thought that my humble blogs would be want to be read. Imagine!!!!

Therefore, today, I dedicate this post to you, my reader.

First, let me start with THANK YOU!!! for taking the time to stop by day after day and reading.

Second, I want to let you know that you are the reason I write.

Third, you are my inspiration to continue writing,

Last, you fill me with encouragement.

The Bible is a book to be shared with all, we are vessels of delivery of its inspiration, message of love, and words of wisdom. It encourages us to be humanitarian, brings the best of us to light, and teaches like a manual how to do the right thing. It is a book that we read and pray to God for its understanding. It is not a book to be interpreted to appease our thoughts, but to give us insight on our daily lives, how to conduct ourselves, how to live a Christian life, but furthermore, how to gain eternal salvation.

I follow this book in my writings. I do not formulate or recreate my opinions, yet put the words inspired by God into written form. They are words from the heart, guided by the Holy Spirit in all respect to the voice of our Savior.

 

Today, I pray to God to continue putting His teachings into words for all your eyes to see.

 

GOD BE WITH YOU ALL, today and always

Spiritual Understanding: Compassion Towards Others

0c359f1211f7777bc9beb0592e4b9494

Today’s Word

Understanding

A disposition to appreciate or share the feelings and thoughts of others; sympathy:

Characterized by or having good sense or compassion

Today’s Verse

Job 32

8 But it is a spirit in people, the breath of the Almighty, that makes them understand.

 

I remember at times, thinking, “I don’t feel sorry for them. They got what they deserved.” However, who am I to judge a person? I may not have all the facts. Even if I did, I am not to judge others. I am to have compassion, instead. Our flesh is of man’s thoughts and teachings. However, our spirit is of God’s thoughts and teachings. To understand the difference we must have our heart listen to God’s guidance.

Carnal Understanding

 From the day we are born, until the day we die, we live in a world filled with selfish thoughts. Our world thrives on self-pleasing and self-preservation. If anyone hurts us, we, naturally, want to hurt them back, or at least we want them to have a piece of our mind. We go through life with the understanding that we are not to be treated harshly nor should we be disrespected.

If anyone does us wrong, we want to get back at them, we want to get things straight, we want to resolve it. However, we are limited, in our resolve, by our carnal understanding of what is fair.

Spiritual Understanding

Whereas in carnal understanding we depend on our own thoughts, in spiritual understanding we rely on God’s thoughts. He speaks to our hearts through the Holy Spirit within us and helps us discern. It is the spiritual understanding in each of us that allows us to show compassion instead of despise, love instead of hatred, kindness instead of meanness.

We no longer rely on our own actions of righteousness, but on God’s expertise in the matter. He intervenes with our human nature, and allows his spirit to prevail.

For it is his spirit in us, his breath of understanding, that should think and act for us.

 

Let our fleshly understanding die each day, so that our spiritual understanding may live forth.

 

Let us be a godly example filled with love, compassion, and kindness towards others, so that Christ in us will show outwardly and win others to join in the family of believers.

 

Let not our carnal understanding be a stumbling block to those that may be wavering in faith.
