Living By Faith, Not By Sight

Living by faith, not by sight

"But you, man of God, flee from all this, and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, endurance and gentleness. Fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called when you made your good confession in the presence of many witnesses. Command those who are rich in this present world not to be arrogant nor to put their hope in wealth, which is so uncertain, but to put their hope in God, who richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment. Command them to do good, to be rich in good deeds, and to be generous and willing to share. In this way they will lay up treasure for themselves as a firm foundation for the coming age, so that they may take hold of the life that is truly life."

1 Timothy 6:11-12, 17-19

Thanksgiving, Praise, and Patience

It’s Thanksgiving. You’ll need this Scripture to make it through. Know it, recite it, and put it into practice—1 Thessalonians 5:14– 18 NIV. "And we urge you, brothers and sisters, warn those who are idle and disruptive, encourage the disheartened, help the weak, be patient with everyone. Make sure that nobody pays back wrong for wrong, but always strive to do what is good for each other and for everyone else. Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus." 1 Thessalonians 5:14–18 NIV

Well, Thanksgiving is a time for families to get together, and we all know how well that always goes. It would be good to keep this Scripture close at hand during all family get-togethers and events, and refer to it often. Committing it to memory would even be better so you can recite it frequently. Yes, seriously. Scripture has a way of breaking through impenetrable barriers. It might even be a good idea to put forth all those specified precepts into practice. This time around, you may be the one holding everything together.

So smile, read this Scripture to everyone before dinner, and have a Happy Thanksgiving. Prayers and blessings.
