The Other’s Well-Being

 

Let me not seek
just my own good

but think of the well being
of others

knowing what may be
okay for me

won’t always edify my
sisters and brothers.

**********

I can put others first because You are with me.

“All things are lawful for me, but all things are not helpful; all things are lawful for me, but all things do not edify.”

“Let no one seek his own, but each one the other’s well-being.”

1 Corinthians 10:23,24 NKJV

Tongue Utterings

“For if the trumpet makes an uncertain sound, who will prepare himself for battle?” 1 Corinthians 14:8
“So likewise you, unless you utter by the tongue words easy to understand, how will it be known what is spoken? For you will be speaking into the air.” 1 Corinthians 14:9

When my youngest gets upset, she makes up words or puts words together in ways that don’t make sense. I have to wait for her to calm down in order to understand her.

Lord, please help me share You today with others in a way they understand. And here’s a simple poem . . .

Words That Edify

Whatever is on my mind
I can speak into the air

and though it feels good to me
there’s no use for it there

so I’ll submit to You, Lord
and ask for the words on my tongue

to be ones that edify
Your work being done.

Known By Him

“Knowledge puffs up, but love edifies.” 1 Corinthians 8:1
“But if anyone loves God, that one is known by Him.” 1 Corinthians 8:3

One of my main concerns about blogging was not knowing enough.

Lord, in my quest to know You and understand You more, let me not forget the most important thing . . .to love You. And here’s a simple poem . . .

Called To Love You

Oh how I long to know You
to understand You better
to read Your word and feel Your strength
beyond the syllables and letters.

There’s nothing wrong with any of this
but, Lord, most of all
I want to love You more and more
and let that be my first call.

He gives me hope; He puts the stars back in my eyes.
