19 Days To Live, May 15



I am almost at the mid-way point of one month to live. I haven't yet accomplished everything that I would like to with this series from a personal basis. One of the things that I'm working on is celebrating my friends and family more. Last night I spent the evening with a close friend who was in from out of town. It was great to catch up and encourage one another in our spiritual journey. I still want to grow closer to my family and especially to God. I am enjoying my time with God but I want to keep going deeper. The verses for the last 2 days scheduled reading have been...

Ephesians 4:26-27, "In your anger do not sin": Do not let the sun go down while you are still angry, 27and do not give the devil a foothold.
Romans 15:7, Accept one another, then, just as Christ accepted you, in order to bring praise to God.


These verses are so powerful. They seem simple and reasonable, but through life experience I know that they are very difficult to live out. Sometimes I get angry and give the devil my foot, leg, upper torso... The foothold generally affects my attitude. My attitude towards Gods authority in my life. Other times I don't accept people for different reasons or excuses. I want to live these scriptures out today. I want to be someone that works through anger and someone that is accepting of others, even if I don't agree with their lifestyle. As a Christ-follower, I am not called to stand in judgement of others. That's God's job. I am called to be a light in a very dark world. Who do you need to forgive today? Who do you need to 'accept' that isn't like you? Start today, tomorrow is not promised.

Life's Healing Choices, Part 6- Repairing Relationships

Week 6: REPAIRING RELATIONSHIPS- THE RELATIONSHIP CHOICE:
I evaluate all my relationships, offer forgiveness to those who have hurt me, and make amends for harm I’ve done to others, except when to do so would harm them or others.

1. I can FORGIVE others because God has FORGIVEN me.
“To be a Christian means to forgive the inexcusable, because God has forgiven the inexcusable in you.” C.S. Lewis

Lessons from a Hoarder (Luke 12:13-21)
13Someone out of the crowd said, "Teacher, order my brother to give me a fair share of the family inheritance." 14He replied, "Mister, what makes you think it's any of my business to be a judge or mediator for you?" 15Speaking to the people, he went on, "Take care! Protect yourself against the least bit of greed. Life is not defined by what you have, even when you have a lot."
