I’m just going to leave this right here.

READ: 1 John 3:11-18
For this is the message that ye heard from the beginning: that we should love one another. Be not as Cain, who was of that wicked one and slew his brother. And why did he slay him? Because his own works were evil, and his brother’s righteous.
Marvel not, my brethren, if the world hate you. We know that we have passed from death unto life, because we love the brethren. He that loveth not his brother abideth in death.
Whosoever hateth his brother is a murderer, and ye know that no murderer hath eternal life abiding in him. Hereby we perceive the love of God: because He laid down His life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren.
But whoso hath this world’s goods and seeth his brother have need, and shutteth up the compassion of his heart from him, how dwelleth the love of God in him? My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue, but in deed and in truth.
A daughter of destiny will not quickly forget where she came from. She is prepared to help her father. Daughter, help your fathers in the natural! Daughter, help your spiritual father! Remember him and remember all that he has done for you. Don’t forget what he has done for you. Perhaps, you will never know the price he paid to care for you.
I am sometimes amazed that people, who have lived with others and at the expense of relatives all their lives, would not like to help anyone in later years. They close the doors to other needy people. They forget what someone did for them.
A virtuous woman has a kind heart. She is generous and helps many people, even those who do not deserve it (Proverbs 31:20). Perhaps you are the wife of some important personality today. Perhaps you are living in a rich western nation. Nothing happens by chance. Perhaps you are occupying a position in which you can employ many Christians. Please note that it is for a reason.
God is the one who established you wherever you are. He will come knocking at your door to ask you for your help. Will you help the cause of the Gospel when it is your turn to do so, or will you find an excuse?
Hebrews 13:16, But to do good and to communicate forget not: for with such sacrifices God is well pleased.
Have a blessed weekend and enjoy one of my favourite songs. 😘🙏😇
