Scripture:

"Do not lay up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where
moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal.
But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither
moth nor rust destroys, and where thieves do not break in and
steal. For where your treasure is there will your heart also be."
(Matthew 6:19-21)

Reflection:

Well I have to be honest with myself, I ain't rich. I'm not rich now
as a matter of fact I'll never be rich. But I do desire and posess some things
that I do not need. And I'm certainly rich compared to many others in
this world. I do have treasures, and you know something its wrong. This
verse reminded me of that. But I do have other treasures stored up.
I have the treasures of love, compassion, forgiveness, grace, and happiness,
and you know those treasures are from heaven.

Prayer:

Dear lord, thank you for my heavenly treasures that I also enjoy on earth.
I am rich with your love and compassion and grace. THANK YOU GOD FOR
BEING GOD.

preacher31 Forgiveness 7/22/2006 04:06 - Subscribe

Scripture:

"For if you forgive men for their transgressions, your heavenly
Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive me, then
your Father will not forgive your transgressions."
(Matthew 6: 14,15)


Reflections:

Forgiveness, this is not an easy thing for us to do. One of the
most meaningful passages in the Holy Scriptures is after being
whipped, brutally beaten, stabbed, nails driven through his hands,
taunted, belittled, spat upon, and placed on a a cross to die.
Jesus Christ asks His Father in heaven to forgive them. WOW!
thats powerful. I mean thats forgiveness. Instead of wanting revenge
He forgives them. There have been times in my life when I have had
to ask God for strength fo forgive, I mean real forgiveness. I walked
around for a long time with revenge in my heart it dominated my life.
When my best friend was killed in Vietnam, I not only felt sadness,
I felt real, powerful anger and yes hate. We had grown up together,
we did everything together, he was like my brother. I was so angry,
upon his death, I just wanted revenge. It dominated my life. I was
angry at the government, I was angry at the president, I was angry
at the military, I was angry at everyone. Then one evening my pastor
came and talked to me about forgiveness, you see he was aware of
my anger also. Together we prayed and asked God to give me strength,
and to experience forgiveness in my heart. And you know something
it worked. Even though those who I was angry at never sought forgiveness,
I forgave them anyway, and my whole life changed. Finally one very
important thing I have discovered about forgiveness, when I forgive I feel
forgiveness.

Prayer:

Our Father,
Who art in heaven,
Hallowed be Thy Name.
Thy Kingdom come,
Thy Will be done,
On earth as it is in Heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread,
And forgive us our debts,
As we also have forgiven our debtors.
And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil. For thine
is the kingdom and the power and
the glory forever. Amen THANK YOU GOD FOR BEING GOD

An Open Letter to President George Bush

(Just a reminder, this is from the book you use as a
guide for making decisions.)


"You have heard that is was said, 'An eye for and eye, and
a tooth for a tooth'. But I say to you do not resist him who is evil;
but whoever slaps you on your right cheek turn to him the other also."
(Matthew 5:38,39)

"You have heard that it was said, 'You should love your neighbor and
hate your enemy.' But I say to you Love your enemies, and pray for
those who persecute you".
(Matthew 5:43, 44)


Sincerely Yours With Unconditional Love,

Jesus Christ the councilor of presidents and savior of the world
