The Things of God

“Then Peter took Him aside and began to rebuke Him, saying, ‘Far be it from You, Lord; this shall not happen to You.'”  Matthew 16:22 NKJV

“But He turned and said to Peter, ‘Get behind Me, Satan! You are an offense to Me, for you are not mindful of the things of God, but the things of man.'”  Matthew 16:23 NKJV

God has to keep correcting me from encouraging according to the things of men instead of the things of Him.

Thank You, Lord, for keeping us mindful of You and Your Kingdom ways.  And here is a simple poem . . .

 

When someone is downhearted
or in need of a helping hand

let me come to You first, Lord
to see if I can

offer an encouragement
from Your word and  in Your name

not just from myself
out of fear and pride’s domain.

God bless you as you stay mindful of Him today!
