"Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbor, and hate thine enemy.
"But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;
"That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven:" (Matthew 5: 43-45a)
The other cars nearly side swiped him, but I let him in. Were those few extra seconds so impossible, my friend?
The bus driver was merely trying to get back into traffic; it wasn't a sin!
Simple acts of kindness are a rarity, once again.
It's not an act. And, I don't feel entrapped.
As a matter of fact, it keeps my humility intact!
No matter where I'm at, there's something more loving I can unpack!
One day, a car parked in front of me had the meter go empty.
I filled my meter with coins, and then, as I walked along.
Put money inside that meter because: It's a $40.00 citation buzz.
This is nothing for you to shout from the rooftop!
But it is little actions like these that make people's mouths drop.
Can you tell a frantic shopper, "Take my place in line. You look like you're in a hurry, and I have a little more time!"
Is denying yourself, daily, a crime?"
"Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me." (Matthew 16: 24)
Dear Pastor Glovioell,
Am I to be a doormat for ‘certain' people? There are always a group of people trying to take advantage of me!
Do I have the word "Fool" written cross my forehead?
It gets me down. I get so depressed-I listen to the ‘blues.'
I Don't Look Dapper in Blue
Dear I Don't Look Dapper in Blue,
Why not do much more Praising for what you have, Dude!
Let nothing, or no one put you into a funky mood.
Life is too precious for you to stew.
So let's live happy and healthy because of what Jesus went through.
