BEWARE THE DEMONIC POWER OF JEALOUSY
Charles Carrin
“Love is strong as death, Jealousy as cruel as the grave.”   Song of Solomon 8:6.
 
I made my first trip to Jerusalem in 1964 and stayed in the old American Colony Hotel. This lovely old building had originally been the private family estate of Bertha Spafford Vester. Bertha still lived on the grounds in a personal section where I saw her only once. This was before the Six Days War and Jerusalem's walled city...

Are you a gossip spreader?
 
    He who covers over an offense promotes love, but whoever repeats the matter separates close friends.
Proverbs 17:9        New International Version
 
THOUGHTS ABOUT TODAY'S VERSE...
   Unfortunately a "gossip spreader" is like a farm manure spreader, it spreads feces, stench and odor everywhere it goes.
    "It's just a little harmless gossip."  The Wise Teacher (Jesus) reminds us that gossip is neither little nor harmless.  It is a tool of the Devil, used...

Do you understand forgiveness?
 
    If your brother sins against you, go and show him his fault, just between the two of you.  If he listens to you, you have won your brother over.
Matthew 18:15                New International Version
 
THOUGHTS ABOUT TODAY'S VERSE...

Encourage One Another
At the Seattle Special Olympics, nine contestants, all physically or mentally challenged, assembled at the starting line for the 100-yard dash. When the gun sounded, they all started out, not exactly in a dash, but with a relish to run the race to the finish and win. All, that is, except one little boy who stumbled on the asphalt, tumbled over a couple of times, and began to cry.
The other eight heard the boy cry. They slowed down...

Let Your Light Shine
Matthew 5:16 says, "Even so, let your light so shine before men that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven."  While reading this passage tonight, I was reminded of a poem I learned as a teenager entitled "Sermons We See" by Edgar Guest.  The first line says, "I'd rather see a sermon than hear one any day; I'd rather one should walk with me than merely tell the way."  I pray...
