I have been thinking about this post and the comments that were left. I was surprised by some of the comments, but glad that people spoke their minds.
I have been thinking about what I wrote and even thought of deleting the whole post, so I wouldn't have to.
And though, I still believe in what I wrote, I have been thinking about judging others and what role I play in that.
I also started to take a look at myself. Alcohol is something I do not partake in, but how would I feel if someone were to look in my window and see what I watch on TV or what I eat. Or how much for that matter (something I have been working on). Would I want them to judge me?
So, I will work more on myself and less on what other people are doing.
Yesterday in Sunday school, our teacher told us to "get an arsenal of verses and saturate yourself with them."
So, here is my "arsenal" for the things I am working on, and praying about:
"Draw Me" Song of Solomon 1:4aKJV
"Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God." Philippians 4:6NIV
"Parents, don't come down too hard on your children or you'll crush their spirits." Colossians 3:21 (the message)
"Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will." Romans 12:2 NIV
"(19) Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; (20) you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies." 1Corinthians 6:19-20 NIV
“Do not judge, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven. " Luke 6:37 NIV
"A Fool's mouth is his undoing, and his lips are a snare to his soul." Proverbs 18:7 NIV
What are some things you think on to get where you need to be? Helpful scriptures? What's in your "arsenal"?
