Take UP Your Cross


Prompt:
Matthew 24:43-47
43 But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up.
44 Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.
45 Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord hath made ruler over his household, to give them meat in due season?
46 Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing.
47 Verily I say unto you, That he shall make him ruler over all his goods.

How can we be wise and faithful servants?

Answer:
To be a wise and faithful servant of Christ means to follow him with all your heart, soul, mind, and strength without turning back. It means to be ready for him to return at any time. It is keeping our heart right with him.

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 Timothy 3:1-7


Scripture:
1 This is a true saying, if a man desire the office of a bishop, he desireth a good work.
2 A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, vigilant, sober, of good behaviour, given to hospitality, apt to teach;
3 Not given to wine, no striker, not greedy of filthy lucre; but patient, not a brawler, not covetous;
4 One that ruleth well his own house, having his children in subjection with all gravity;
5 (For if a man know not how to rule his own house, how shall he take care of the church of God?)
6 Not a novice, lest being lifted up with pride he fall into the condemnation of the devil.
7 Moreover he must have a good report of them which are without; lest he fall into reproach and the snare of the devil.

Observations:
Verse 1- It is good for a man to desire a position in office in a church.
Verse 2- This person should have a good reputation, not have known sin, husband of one wife, sober, observant, hospitable, able to teach, and on his best behavior.
Verse 3- Doesn't get drunk or do drugs, is not violent, not greedy, not a fighter, not coveting others’ property but should be patient .
Verse 4- one who is able to control his children.
Verse 5- How can a man take care of a church if he can't rule his own house?
Verse 6- not a beginner so he isn’t overcome with pride..
Verse 7- He should also be able to have a good reputation and relations with people outside the church.

Application:
Only a very good man should hold a high position in the church.

Prayer:
Dear God,
I pray for the men of my church who hold the higher positions that they may maintain a good reputation and fulfill your will for them and their families.
In Jesus's name,
Amen

Do you have an ongoing project going? Are you doing it to benefit others or yourself?

I always have something happening. I have several things just on this website. I hope to benefit others more than myself. I am trying to make and sell crafts. That benefits the buyer and myself. I want to learn to play the guitar, and that will also benefit others and myself. I am a caregiver to my roommate also. Life is not just about me. It is about what I contribute to the good of others too. I want the world to be a better place because I was in it.

Alternate prompt: Use these words in your entry today: bunny, eggs, daffodils, grasshoppers and loitering.

Big Bunny

The grasshoppers were a loitering
The beautiful daffodils dancing
Eggs all over the place
Hidden for kids to find
The big bunny left quick as lightning.

We had a party onboard today in the rec hall. Some of our fellow crew let it all hang out. They started reciting poetry. It was quite a coincidence because we got a call from the bridge. We were in orbit of a shiny star named Seven Ink (18) . One of the planets in this system was

A limerick about drinkin'
#2247537 by Seven Ink


Have you ever been bitten by alcohol? Tell us your favorite party memory.

I am the daughter of a preacher. Sooooo, yes. 🤪 When I first got out of high school, I went a bit wild. I did not disappoint the reputation of preacher’s kids. I didn't do the hard drugs, thank God. I huffed when I was a teenager. Then after high school, I got my own apartment. My best friend teases me by telling me it had its own revolving party door. I have a few stories I could tell, but don't have time for that right now. I guess my favorite would be the night I decided to have a drinking contest with one of my guy friends. We had other friends around so they could keep the tally. We both sat down across from each other on a bar stool. My apartment had a breakfast bar at the time. I can't remember how many beers we drank. We both drank until he passed out. I was okay until I tried to get up and walk. Yeah, that didn't go so well. But hey! I won the contest. Although I had a nice mess to clean up the next day. Looking back now, I realize how foolish that was.

Use these words in your blog... courage, brilliance, bunny, daffodil and raindrops.

After seeing the raindrops on the daffodil, the bunny felt his day would be filled with brilliance and courage.
