Blessed To Help The Poor
picture for forum

Take UP Your Cross

Psalm 41:1-3
Blessed is he that considereth the poor: the Lord will deliver him in time of trouble.
2 The Lord will preserve him, and keep him alive; and he shall be blessed upon the earth: and thou wilt not deliver him unto the will of his enemies.
3 The Lord will strengthen him upon the bed of languishing: thou wilt make all his bed in his sickness.

How can we apply this passage to our own lives?

We are blessed when we help the poor because God will help us too.

If we help the poor, God will:
-Deliver us out of trouble.
-Preserve us.
-Keep us alive.
-Blesses us upon the earth.
-Does not deliver us to the will of our enemies.
-Will strengthen us upon the bed of languishing. (Languishing = failing to make progress or be successful) https://www.google.com/search?q=languishing&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&hl=en-us&client=sa...
-Will take care of us in sickness.

This seems like a pretty good trade to me.

There are nine entries now. Thank you for all who has entered so far. There is still some time to enter and at least 1k gift points still up for grabs for the next entry. Who knows, if I get even more entries, I may feel generous to give 1k gift points per entry until my generosity runs out. I promised at least 10. I have 9 now. Does someone want to test my generosity?

This is the link to the group I do these Scripture writings with on Facebook if anyone else is interested in doing so also.

Scripture writing - 1 Thessalonians 5:23-28

23 And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.
24 Faithful is he that calleth you, who also will do it.
25 Brethren, pray for us.
26 Greet all the brethren with an holy kiss.
27 I charge you by the Lord that this epistle be read unto all the holy brethren.
28 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Amen.

Verse 23- God is a God of peace. God is the one who sanctifies us, and he does it all the way, not just partly. The sanctification that God gives, make us blameless and preserves us for Christ’s return.
Verse 24- God is faithful. He is the one who calls you and will follow through on his promises.
Verse 25- Pray for others.
Verse 26- Greet all the fellow Christians in love.
Verse 27- The writer wants all Christians to read his letter.
Verse 28- May the Grace of Jesus be with us all.

God is a God of peace. He sanctifies us. God is faithful.

Dear Father God,
You are a faithful father. Help me to remember you are a God of peace, and I should pursue peace. Thank you for your sanctification and the grave that is found in Jesus Christ.
In Jesus’s name,

How do you handle confrontation?

I don't really like confrontation. I try to avoid it if I can. When I get angry, I don't like the angry me that comes out. It is a scary side of myself that even I am afraid of. I try to keep that part of me locked away unless I absolutely need it. I like to call it my monster in a cage. It isn’t pretty when I let it out. I am normally a nice, fun-loving, kind, easy going type of person. My anger is a force to be reckoned with. People who threaten the ones I love will see the monster in me.

I know that my anger does not bring forth the righteousness of the God I serve. This is another reason I try hard to keep it in check. This is an area in my life where God shows his grace and mercy a lot. He is definitely still working on me especially in this area.

When I do have to deal with confrontation, I try very hard to keep myself calm. I try to respond cooly and quietly. I have been told that when I am angry and trying to control it, my voice becomes monotone. I try to remain in control. I try to remain respectful and professional. (especially when working in customer service ) I will remain firm. I can be quite stubborn when I want to be. I am not usually one to be aggressive unless severely provoked, but I am also not one to back down easily. I am no easy pushover unless I choose to be. I remind myself that each reaction may have permanent and/or long term consequences. I ask myself if losing control of my temper is really worth it. This has actually kept me out of a few fistfights. Sometimes, if you just observe the situation and try to see beyond the surface, you may learn something and be glad that you did.
