  1. This really hit home for me. My daughter and I were discussing this the other day. What ever happened to respect for another person’s opinion whether we agree or not?
    John 16:33 is one of my favorites. It makes me smile.

  2. Jami, since we see the whole world is in chaos (And that does not shock our Heavenly Father)
    I embrace this amazing truth: “FOR HE HIMSELF IS OUR PEACE …” [Ephesians 2:14 NIV]

  3. This is so, so spot on. We’ve all read so much hurtful that just makes the world seem worse. To actively try to be salt and light, to pause before replying and confess our own reactions to God, asking for His prespective – treasure!!

  4. We can all say things with our words that can hurt people and be quick to write something on Facebook or Twitter or Instagram or Watts app etc. Then regret we said anything as we say thing to quickly at times. We can afterwards we said that on the website on line or even texts to people on our phone or emails. Once it said we can’t take it back. So this where I wouldn’t have Facebook or Twitter or Instagram or Watts app etc about me. Or anything to do with them. As once wrote on them the whole world see them and knows your business. If you said something you regret about someone the world gets to see it. Plus you hurt that person feeling. Would you like them to say it about you. Would God want you to say it about them. It is a form of Gossip. That is wrong in God’s eyes. I had a friend even though alot older than me now in glory. Who said this good advice to me. Bidden or not Bidden God is watching. That means God see and hears what you do and say about people. Would God want you to say it about anyone. Even if they have done wrong to you. Or said something about you. You have to do what God would want you do even if they are not saved that is not want to retaliate and say anything bad about them or do something bad to them because they done it to you. God would want you to pray for them. Even if you heard Gossip about them. Not to pass it on. It nothing good to say. Say nothing my friend in Glory today said. You just pray for them and that is what God would want you to do. We read about what God wants us to do with our word in James Chapter 3 to do with the Tongue. We have to make peace even when the world can be your enemy. People say things about you that are not nice. We have to show them the love of Jesus no matter what. As they might not be saved. Should we are different and love them no matter what. Tell them I still love you no matter what you think of me. As lots of people in Jesus day when on earth didn’t love him. Today they still don’t. But he still loved them when on earth no matter what and still does today. That what he was all about we are to do the same. Love today’s reading.

  5. Kathi,

    Our world is in turmoil. So much hatred being spewed over computers. It amazes me that people can have contempt for others simply based on race or color. We don’t take the time to talk with others & really get to know them. Most simply hide behind a computer screen & spit out hatred based on their opinions or beliefs. Christians need to act as Jesus would loving everybody regardless. We need to remind ourselves that our hope isn’t in this world but God alone!! The Bible has a lot to say about taming the tongue. James 3:6, 8-10 The tongue also is a fire, a world of evil among the parts of the body. It corrupts the whole body, sets the whole course of one’s life on fire, and is itself set on fire by hell. but no human being can tame the tongue. It is a restless evil, full of deadly poison. With the tongue we praise our Lord and Father, and with it we curse human beings, who have been made in God’s likeness. 10 Out of the same mouth come praise and cursing. My brothers and sisters, this should not be.

    Blessings 🙂
