Truthfulness



Truthfulness

     The thought of the week is- Truthfulness! Truthfulness is a very important thing in our day to day life! We should try to be truthful in EVERYTHING we do and say! Many times we are tempted to lie or cheat, but these things are very wrong! The bible says in Pro.12:19 -  The lips of truth shall be established for ever: but a lying tongue is but for a moment.

    Some people say that a "little white lie" is fine and that there is nothing wrong with it! That is far from true! What we think is just a little lie that won't hurt anybody could turn into a huge circle of lies that could really hurt a lot of people! We should NEVER lie no matter how little we think it may be, it will ALWAYS hurt other people! When we lie it also hurts God!

     God wants us to be truthful in EVERYTHING we do! In school we should never cheat on a test, and we should never lie to our parents! I believe that gossiping is also a form of lying! I mean you really don't know if what you are saying is totally true if you heard it from someone else! I personally know that a little gossip can spread to lots of people and believe me there is a big chance that the story will be changed around! Things like these can hurt people very severally! We should NEVER tell a lie even to hurt somebody or to protect ourselves from getting in trouble! I challenge you this week to try to tell the truth in EVERYTHING you do!

Christmas Ornament Challenge entry

This is a picture of my favorite Christmas ornament! I am entering it into a Christmas Ornament Challenge over at Designed to Inspire! This is my favorite ornament because last year I came up with the idea that each of my family members would buy a special ornament for one other person in the family:) We have done this for now two years! This ornament is the one my momma bought for me! It is a piano. She bought me a piano ornament since I have played the piano for 5 years and love it (I am actually having another piano recital on Tuesday, so Please pray that I do OK!) Any way it is a special ornament since it is from my mom, and it portrays me real well! I will cherish it forever!

Please Pray

I just wanted to remind everybody about  the killing at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn.this Friday morning. At least 26 people were killed and at least 18 of them were children! It is so sad, and heartbreaking that somebody could go into a school and just gun down little children! It breaks my heart! Please pray for the parents who have had their children killed! Our country is turning evil because America is no longer putting God first in our country! They are kicking God out of schools, the government, and just about everything! I just thought I would remind you all to please pray for these grieving parents!

State police personnel led children from the school, following the shooting. (credit: Newtown Bee Photo, Shannon Hicks)

Witnessing



My thought for the week is-Witnessing. Witnessing is a very important thing in our life! We should always want to tell others about Jesus! The bible says that we should not be ashamed of the gospel! We should never be ashamed or embarrassed to tell others about Jesus! You walk by lost people every day, and if you are not willing to give the gospel to them who will? Evey soul is important and they might be in need of the Lord, but if we do not tell them they might die and go to hell!
    The bible says in Romans 10:14- How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher?  How will people know about Jesus if we do not tell them? It is our responsibility to tell others that Jesus died on the cross for their sins! Will you tell some one about Jesus this week? Will you step forward and be a witness for Christ? It is your decision! Make the right chose this week and tell somebody about Jesus!

It is better to give then to receive...

Giving

I would like to talk about giving today! Christmas is coming soon and all we are constantly thinking about is what we are going to get for Christmas! But we need to stop and think about it for a second- the bible says in: Acts20:35D-  It is more blessed to give than to receive.
 We should want to give more then we should want to receive!
     We need to remember the reason for the Season- Jesus! Jesus GAVE his life for us! That is the ultimate gift! We need to remember this Christmas to GIVE Jesus a gift! Your probably wondering what on earth that means?! What can I GIVE to God as a gift? The answer is your heart! All God wants from you is your heart! I'm not only talking about getting saved, I am talking about putting God first in your life!
     We should never let earthly things come between us and God! I know that it is very easy to lose sight of what is truly important in our life, we spend way to much time watching TV, playing video games, reading, and (yes) even blogging instead of reading our bible and spending time with God! I know that I am sometimes guilty of this! This Christmas GIVE Jesus your heart! Make it your New Year's Revolution to Live for God more then you have ever done before in your life! Is your heart right with God? Are you GIVING your heart to wicked, worldly things instead of spiritual things? GIVE God the most important gift you will ever GIVE for Christmas- your heart!
