I like that verse: Matthew chapter 7 verse 6: "Don't give what is holy to unholy people. Don't give pearls to swine! They will trample the pearls, then turn and attack you." I have been in that situation in which I have given of the treasure the Word has given me whether in college or a loved one or supposed good friend, and they want to argue and dispute the living Word. So I believe that is what these verses mean. Don't waste your time with Words that are non-responsive or effective to certain people. Give the Word to ones who seek and crave understanding. And I do have some friends who like me really love the Word and we get into good discussions. I like blogging and write several scriptures and some of what you write Mike, I share with my friends on facebook and send sweet emails to friends or text ones in need. I try to use as little words and show with actions, however, me being a talker that is really hard for me at times, but I am working on it. and I keep saying in 2013 I am also going to learn to say no sometimes. No I can't do such and such today, or no I can't babysit your child at this time, and so on and so on. I want to please alot of times and it isn't doing me any good when my heart isn't fully in it and it isn't my "best" from God and to God either. I love this site as I have through the years and I thankyou Mike for your diligence!

God Bless

Greetings!
Just this past Sunday 1.2.2020, our bishop spoke on sharing Jesus with everyone. Sharing from Matthew 5:16 In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.
The Bishop quoted, St. Francis of Assisi "Share the gospel at all times and if necessary use words". Then, he goes on to say, in today's culture...doing something good without acknowledging Jesus..is a only a nice gesture. Without bringing Jesus into the equation of why you are helping, does not point Glory to the Father. It points to us (yikes). I was both convicted and encouraged by his words...
I love what the bishop suggests on how we can give an simple answer to whomever we are assisting. Simply tell the person: "I just want to wanted to show Jesus' love in a practical way."

Blessings to all,

“Do not judge, or you too will be judged. 2 For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.
