"Trust in the Lord with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him. And He shall direct your paths." Proverbs 3:5-6
This is a lesson that I slipped on recently. "And lean not on your own understanding." It never occured to me that I was doing that until Friday night. And then God spoke to my heart and told me what I had been doing and woke me up! Praise the Lord.
We have to be aware of our actions, our words spoken or written. My problem has been speaking and acting first then thinking. Now I think first then act/speak. I know I've spoken a lot about walking in faith, and keeping my eyes on Jesus. I'm not sure if it's more to make sure it sinks in with myself, but am believing it is to help others as well not make the same mistake.
Believe me, it's not worth losing a friend(s) because of what you say and or do.
God did not create us to be what we want to be, he created us to be like Him.
"So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them." Genesis 1:27
He created us in His image.
