2 Samuel 14:14

“For we will surely die and are like water spilled on the ground which cannot be gathered up again. Yet God does not take away life, but plans ways so that the banished one will not be cast out from him.

Pues ciertamente moriremos; somos como el agua derramada en tierra que no se vuelve a recoger. Pero Dios no quita la vida, sino designa medios para que el desterrado no sea alejado de él.

God cares about His people. Yes, we will die, but He wants the very best for us both on Earth and after. He is not the one who put death upon us, we do it to ourselves. Pour your cares out upon Him, for He cares for you.

Philippians 4:11-13

11Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content. 12I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound: every where and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need. 13I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.

11 No que hable porque tenga escasez, pues he aprendido a contentarme cualquiera que sea mi situación. 12 Sé vivir en pobreza, y sé vivir en prosperidad; en todo y por todo he aprendido el secreto tanto de estar saciado como de tener hambre, de tener abundancia como de sufrir necesidad. 13 Todo lo puedo en Cristo que me fortalece

God allows us to be in situations that at times, we do not understand. Everything will work for His glory when we allow Him to guide us. At times, it may mean going without or having difficult situations, but God will take care of us if we trust in Him. All will be His will and we are here to do His will. Thank You Jesus for the strength You give.

Colossians 3:23-25

23And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men; 24Knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance: for ye serve the Lord Christ. 25But he that doeth wrong shall receive for the wrong which he hath done: and there is no respect of persons.

23 Y todo lo que hagáis, hacedlo de corazón, como para el Señor y no para los hombres, 24 sabiendo que del Señor recibiréis la recompensa de la herencia. Es a Cristo el Señor a quien servís. 25 Porque el que procede con injusticia sufrirá las consecuencias del mal que ha cometido, y eso, sin acepción de personas.

If we live by this scripture, no one will be able to truthfully say we are in the wrong. God will reward us according to how we live and how we treat others. No matter our work or what we do, if we do it as we are doing it for God, it will be good! Praise Him!

James 2:1-4

1My brethren, have not the faith of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Lord of glory, with respect of persons. 2For if there come unto your assembly a man with a gold ring, in goodly apparel, and there come in also a poor man in vile raiment; 3And ye have respect to him that weareth the gay clothing, and say unto him, Sit thou here in a good place; and say to the poor, Stand thou there, or sit here under my footstool: 4Are ye not then partial in yourselves, and are become judges of evil thoughts?


1 Hermanos míos, no tengáis vuestra fe en nuestro glorioso Señor Jesucristo con una actitud de favoritismo. 2 Porque si en vuestra congregación entra un hombre con anillo de oro y vestido de ropa lujosa, y también entra un pobre con ropa sucia, 3 y dais atención especial al que lleva la ropa lujosa, y decís: Tú siéntate aquí, en un buen lugar; y al pobre decís: Tú estate allí de pie, o siéntate junto a mi estrado; 4 ¿no habéis hecho distinciones entre vosotros mismos, y habéis venido a ser jueces con malos pensamientos?

 

There is no man that is higher than God. No matter poor or rich, skinny or obese; all are just men and we are to not put one ahead of another. We all put our pants on the same way and we all are sinners. I will listen and heed God before any man or woman. I hope we all will.
