Jesus Justice

Don't be so quick to remember how people have hurt you. Remember...you have also hurt others (probably even that same person). Most likely, you have hurt everyone you know, but you just don't know in what ways you have done it.

Be forgiving. Be graceful. You would also want others to do the same with you.

Be at peace with everyone as much as it is in your power. Let GOD take care of those who need to be brought to JUSTICE. At the end of the day, God will do a much better job of that than you ever will.

 
A verse to help you reflect on this:
Romans 12:17-21
"Do not repay anyone evil for evil. Be careful to do what is right in the eyes of everyone. If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone. Do not take revenge, my dear friends, but leave room for God’s wrath, for it is written: “It is mine to avenge; I will repay,” says the Lord. On the contrary:
“If your enemy is hungry, feed him;
if he is thirsty, give him something to drink.
In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head.”
Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.

Gracefulness and blessings upon all of you,

Meditations of a Train Ride

       One of the most deceiving quotes that I have read are those that encourage you to "always follow your heart." It annoys me so much when I hear Christians say that, because I find that they don't realize what they are actually saying. Have you ever meditated on this? I find that people don't realize that MANY of their mistakes were as a result of "following their heart."

       The Bible makes no mistake when it says that "The heart is deceitful above all things and beyond cure. 'Who can understand it?'" -Jeremiah 17:9. Meditate on things that you pick up on all these social networks. Don't just go by them because they sound pretty.

Love & Blessings,
