Daily Dose – Building a House

woman-holding-house

Proverbs 14:1 A wise woman builds her house, but the foolish pulls it down with her hands.

Did you know you can build a house? God says so. No, you won’t need mortar, brick, and wood.

But every Christian woman has the ability to build up her family with her wisdom, industry and righteousness.

Her faithful Christian character blesses those in her home. Today, are you building your house or tearing it down?

Seek God, and He will help you make it strong.

Daily Dose – Wise Correction

Proverbs 29:15 The rod and rebuke give wisdom, but a child left to himself brings shame to his mother.

In today’s world, fears of child abuse have caused us to ignore this verse.Have we therefore missed the power of correction, which gives our children wisdom?

As God restrains us from wrongdoing, we need to stop our children too. We need not touch a child physically to modify behavior.

Will we discipline harmful actions now to raise wise, God fearing children or raise a generation of foolish children?

Clothe Yourself with Compassion

Colossians 3:12-17
As children of God there are some things we should put off and some things we should put on, in order to live a life pleasing to God. We can’t change what we don’t acknowledge and we can’t expect significant change if we continue doing the same old things. It must begin with a change of heart.
We should put off the old sinful man and his sinful deeds which includes anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy communication, lying, works of darkness and the pattern of living in sin. However we should put on as the elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering, forbearance and forgiveness. We must put on the whole armour of God, even the armour of light. This is the type of Spiritual garment we must wear which was also worn by Jesus Christ.

Col 3:14 says, “And above all these things put on charity, which is the bond of perfectness.” Charity is love which is the thread that holds our spiritual garments together. Anything without charity (love) is nothing. It perfects us.

We must learn to forgive others just as Christ forgave us. Holding unforgiveness in our hearts will be burdensome and keep us down. Despite what we may face the peace of God should rule in our hearts having dominion over any feelings and emotions. Jesus Christ is the Prince of peace and is able to give us that peace that passeth all our understanding. We are to live peaceably with all men, even as we are called in one body, the body of Christ. Paul reminds us to be thankful in everything, this is the will of God.

Col 3:16
Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom, teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.
We should hide the Word of God in our hearts. This is our daily bread, our spiritual food by which we must live. This enables us to teach, admonish and encourage each other, with wisdom, being led by the Holy Spirit. Anything we do or say should be done with excellence, as unto the Lord and not unto men. God should be glorified in all that we say, do or even think.
