( I really thought I would get away with it too!)
( and for good reason )!
Problem #3: I underestimated Mom's love and concern for me..She really was paying attention to my life, even when I didn't think she cared. She was watching over me.
In Ephesians 4, Paul urges us to walk worthy of the vocation by which we are called. He then goes on to explain how to do this: (vs. 2-3) With all lowliness and meekness(humble and gentle), with long suffering,(patience) forbearing one another in love; Endeavouring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace... The rest of this chapter goes on to describe how we are each a part of the family of Christ, being given various spiritual gifts, with the common goal of perfecting the body of the saints of which we are united through Christ!
The book of Ephesians contains so many spiritual truths and lessons on how to live a healthy Christian lifestyle. I find myself returning to this part of the Bible often, and whenever I do, it seems to pull me in , whetting my spiritual appetite more and more..These four chapters in Ephesians were my focus this morning as I was sitting in the yard swing, while the birds were calling to one another in joyful anticipation of the meal of suet and seeds I had just provided them..
So likewise, we must be joyful at all that the Lord is providing us in terms of the spiritual food which gives us our strength..and like the birds, we should call out to one another to share in this bounty of His Word. We must encourage one another and continue to shine the light of God's Word upon the path that we are walking so none will be lost and all will grow strong in the Lord, and in doing so we will equip the saints and build up the kingdom for His glory and our joy!
and a light unto my path ."
Psalm 119:105 ( KJV)
