Psalms 25:9 True of false? Experience is the best teacher. Experience is a good teacher, but guided experience is the best teacher. We need people to come alongside us; people who care enough to confront us when we’re off base. And when we’re confronted, we need the humility to learn from it.
1 Corinthians 10:13 Temptation is always present, no matter who you are. It knows no barriers and doesn’t play favourites. When you’re tempted don’t linger; determine in your heart to resist.
James 4:11 Prejudice is nothing new. It’s a learned trait, which keeps you in darkness. When you’re prejudice you become bound to old ways of thinking. You lose your openness and creativity. In fact, prejudice can affect every aspect of your life.
Romans 2:1 First impressions are seldom correct. We’re quick to judge others but a better approach is to choose to see the best in each other and extend grace. It’s something we all need.
1 John 5:16-18 You can’t play games fairly without keeping the rules and the same logic applies to life. Rules set boundaries for us in how we should live but they don’t stop us from stop doing what wrong. God’s law is not the cause of our wrongdoing it simply reveals it to us.
Isaiah 49:16 If you allow it, tragedy can pull you closer to the Lord than you’ve ever been. God doesn’t leave you in hard times, He comes closer and He stays nearer.
Matthew 23:1-12 The world says tells us all that matters is making a good impression. But God is not impressed with externals; you can’t fake it with Him. Recognizing the hypocrisy in your life and breaking with it is painful, but necessary.
Ephesians 4:32 A perfect family is not achievable. There will always be disagreements and the clashing of wills. However, through Christ a home filled with grace, forgiveness, and love is achievable.
Ecclesiastes 4:12 Chuck Swindoll affirms a reasonably good marriage may not sound exciting but it’s both real and achievable. Marriage enhances life because you’re in it together. The world keeps changing but God’s design for marriage hasn’t. It’s the basis of the family and even society.
John 13:35 It matters that you get involved. This doesn’t necessarily mean joining a protest march; it can be as straightforward as connecting with people and making a positive difference in their lives.
1 Corinthians 13:4-7 How often do you give the gift of love to others? If it’s in words then use the word “I” and include the word “love” and end with the word “you.” Real love is resilient. It never gives up. It stands firm.
Galatians 5:22-23 Have you ever been given a gift you needed but didn’t want? We’ve all received disappointing gifts. But there are gifts, which never disappoint. They’re often unseen gifts like forgiveness, compassion, grace, understanding, and kindness. And they’re priceless.
1 Thessalonians 5:11 Often the best gifts in life are unexpected and better for us than we could imagine. Parents, do you have a vision for your children’s future? It’s so important to recognize our children’s natural skills and abilities and encourage them to reach for their potential.
2 Corinthians 9:15 There has only ever been one perfect gift, and it was given more than 2,000 years ago. This gift is too wonderful for words. In fact, the Bible says it’s indescribable.
Luke 2:1-14 The first Christmas was simple, not a lavish event. Jesus’ birth remains the purest and most beautiful story in all of history.
