Bonsoir Monseuir, I would like to say that you are an interesting person to us. Since you have professed your unbelief and we have stated our opinion on this matter I am sure that you will agree that this should not hinder a positive and stimulating dialogue between the three of us. I too would like to share the same quote with you, I am sure that you can see the wisdom in this philosophy I am honored to post this.
“People are often unreasonable and self-centered. Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse you of ulterior motives. Be kind anyway.
If you are honest, people may cheat you. Be honest anyway.
If you find happiness, people may be jealous. Be happy anyway.
The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway.
Give the world the best you have and it may never be enough. Give your best anyway.
For you see, in the end, it is between you and God. It was never between you and them anyway.”
With this I and Seraphine bid you all bonne nuit and good night to you monseuir. Until the next time we meet again I look foward to it.
A beautiful philosophy.

Just think what our world would be changed if everybody followed those principles.

Give alms in secret.

Take heed that ye do not your alms before men,to be seen of them;other wise ye have no reward of your Father which is in heaven.

Therefore when thou doest thine alms,do not sound a trumpet before thee,as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets,that they may have glory of men.Verily I say unto you They have their reward.

But when thou doest alms let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doeth:

That thine alms may be in secret and thy Father which seeth in secret himself shall reward thee openly.
Matthew 6:1-4

Lol..yeah they can be pretty harsh with the whole 'I hate Christians cause they're hateful of non Christians who just hate etc....' The muslim threads are shocking, some of the Indian ones too,(like the one about a woman breastfeeding her 14yr old) and they call us Aussies racist which is just to funny. Yeah I have a few stalkers, it's either laugh or cry here sometimes, I prefer a good laugh myself.
I think this thread is the nicest and most genuine thread here, even when debates occur they seem to be in a loving vein. I truly enjoy most posts but don't feel knowledgeable enough to debate scripture or denominations, yet ;D
Peace and love and roasted marshmallows dear sister <3
Cheers, and ditto to Peace and love and roasted marshmallows ~ I think they are delicious :)

Hi Serah;
I shall talk some with you hope you do not mind.It is extremely cold here in the mountains tonight already six below zero and the temperature keeps falling.I spend alot time in the Bible cause that is where I find comfort and I listen with my head phones to music too as I am alone alot of the time.I only come here with scripture to share is all.Really not interested in debating scriptures.So hope you enjoy what I share.God bless.
Hey Lil Whispers, I do enjoy what you share ~ and Scriptures are comforting when we are alone, so is music. Sorry to hear it is so cold where you are ~ here it is extremely hot... if we mixed the two, we could end up with warm weather :)

Bonsoir Madame Serah, I live by this philosophy and so does Seraphine. As Christians this is and should be our chief aim. We can and should do better for God and for ourselves. Every cruel word we say, every evil action or thought whether intentional or not causes pain and suffering that are needless:
“People are often unreasonable and self-centered. Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse you of ulterior motives. Be kind anyway.
If you are honest, people may cheat you. Be honest anyway.
If you find happiness, people may be jealous. Be happy anyway.
The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway.
Give the world the best you have and it may never be enough. Give your best anyway.

Yes ~ in the end, when we give up our Ghost, we will have what we strived for :)

This Year, Live by the Beatitudes (1)
Rom 13:12-14:19, Jn 1:1-14
'Blessed are the poor in spirit...' Matthew 5:3

Let's look at the Beatitudes (what our attitudes should be), Jesus said,'Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the Kingdom of Heaven.' Now, He wasn't saying He's against you having money, He was saying He's against money having you. He will actually prosper you so that you can finance and fulfill His purposes in the earth. But He doesn't measure the size of your faith by the size of your bank balance. In one of His parables Jesus called a wealthy man a 'fool'. This wasn't because he was rich, it was because he wasn't 'rich toward God'.(Luke 12:21) John D. Rockefeller once said: "I've made many millions but they brought me no real happiness. I'd barter them all for the days I sat on an office stool in Cleveland and counted myself rich on three dollars a week". Having more money may give you social status, but serving God gives you Kingdom-significance. Big difference! So keep your focus on what matters and live for what lasts. Each winter in Kemi, Finland, you can visit a sprawling, ice castle that features a theatre, a playground, an art gallery and a chapel. The castle walls are 4 metres high and stretch for over 500 metres. The chappel is a popular wedding venue and the theatre can seat 3000 people. In it rock concerts, musicals, modern dance and opera recitals have been held. The problem is, its upkeep costs millions of dollars and, each year, it all melts in the spring. Are you getting the idea? Focus on what lasts, not on what doesn't.
The Word for Today.
**********

I certainly got the idea. My mother was always concerned with wealth and status, never with faith or love or even her children. Growing up, we had all that money and wealth could buy, but no love and no God. This shaped us into very miserable, selfish and materialistic individuals, myself included of course. Imagine my horror when there was a time that I became very poor, by then I had acquired that elusive faith and love of others and God more than provided everything we needed. Moral of the story, for me? I'll take God and love over wealth and status any day. I just pray my siblings will one day discover what really matters as well.
Peace <3

Good morning. Have you ever heard of Via Dolorosa? Have you ever heard about the Garden of Gethsemane? Have you ever heard of the conversation between the Lord Jesus Christ and His Heavenly Father,where the Holy Son of Almighty God said to His Father 'Father,if it is possible,let this 'Cup' pass from Me. But let not My will be done,but Your will be done'?? There's 'Someone,VERY Special,waiting to meet you....RIGHT NOW..Have a wonderful Saturday.

This Year, Live by the Beatitudes (3)
2 Thess 1-3, Matt 4:1-11, Ps 90:7-17, Pr 1:5-9
'Blessed be the meek...' Matthew 5:5

In our macho world, meekness is often mistaken for weakness. But Jesus' definition of meekness pictures a powerful, majestic stallion that has been brought into submission. It hasn't lost any of its stamina. It's just that, whereas it once had a strong will of its own, it now yields to the will of another. The breaking process is complete; now it responds to the tug on the reigns. Meekness involves:(1) Sensitivity to God. In a good marriage two people often understand each other's needs without a word needing to be spoken. The time they've spent together makes them aware of the things that enrich and the things that offend, and their devotion to one another makes their marriage a top priority. It's the same in your relationship with God.(2) Surrender to God's will. The key to breaking stubborn habits is not fighting them in your own strength. That only keeps your focus on the problem, intensifying its power. Changing your focus and submitting to God moment by moment is the key to winning, whether it's a problem or a hang- up.'Not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think of anything as being from ourselves, but our sufficiency is from God.'(2 Corinthians 3:5)(3) Submission to God's purposes. To understand the difference between submission and selfishness you must ponder these words:'So they come to you as people do, they sit before you as My people, and they hear your words, but they do not do them; for with their mouth they show much love, but their hearts pursue their own gain.'(Ezekiel 33:31) Think about it.
The Word for Today
**********

Whew! That's a hard one for me. Surrender has never been my forte, sometimes I can, sometimes I can't. I guess I see myself as a stallioness (l made up that word) that has not quite been tamed just yet. I believe wholeheartedly in the concept, I just forget at times. I continue to pray for my development of meekness always, Amen. Does anyone else struggle with this?
Peace and love and lots o' chocolate <3

Today's Prayer

Dear God, Though I may not be financially wealthy, I want to be a good steward of what you have allowed me to have. Please give me wisdom to manage my finances well, to be pleasing to you, to use whatever money I have for your work, for ministry to others, and to meet my needs--without being selfish or stingy. I want to handle what you have given, so that you will trust me with more and I will be able to invest even more in ministry in your name. Thank you for all your blessings. In Jesus' name I pray, amen.
