Basic Instructions Before We Leave Earth
As we approach every day, some things really should be natural and common sense for us to carry out.
But through the hurts, pains, disappointments we experience, if we are not careful, our hearts become hardened.
To me there is no reason for a Christian not to speak to another (or anyone for that matter). It is sad to visit a church where people have been so hurt that when greeted with a smile and/or the words “Hello” they fail to respond with a cheerful heart.
Everyone has been hurt and will be tested. But through it all we know the battle is won and that we are saved through Jesus Christ (our access to God). You never know when your words, smile, time, hug, laughter, and ear may stop someone from making a tragic choice. You never know how God may use you strategically to lift someone’s spirit (just in time).
So I want to reference scripture in the Bible that is a subset of God’s basic instructions before we leave Earth.
I encourage you to read
25Therefore each of you must put off falsehood and speak truthfully to his neighbor, for we are all members of one body. 26″In your anger do not sin”[d]: Do not let the sun go down while you are still angry, 27and do not give the devil a foothold. 28He who has been stealing must steal no longer, but must work, doing something useful with his own hands, that he may have something to share with those in need.
29Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. 30And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, with whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. 31Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice. 32Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.
Let us all work on ourselves so that we can be a better vehicle/vessel for God to accomplish His goals. You are here for a purpose. So open your soul, spirit, and temple (your body and house) to be used by God for His kingdom’s sake.
God Bless You
