James 5:9

James 5:9

Don't grumble about each other, brothers and sisters, or you will be judged. For look--the Judge is standing at the door!

After Thought

Don't complain. The Israelites wasted forty years murmuring and complaining in the wilderness about so many things. The door to the promised land remained shut until they had a change of heart.

Psalm 119:32

Psalm 119:32

I run in the path of your commands, for you have broadened my understanding.

After Thought

A dog joyously obeys the commands of the owner. It finds pleasure in the benefits that come through obedience. When one understands the loving nature of God there is joy in following His commands as well.

2 Kings 1:8

2 Kings 1:8

They answered him, "He was a hairy man with a leather girdle bound about his loins." And he said, "It is Elijah the Tishbite.

After Thought

The Hebrew word describing Elijah literally means "lord of hair." It is believed he dressed differently than others to show contempt for the accepted norms of the time. He purposefully stood out in the crowd.

Matthew 2:2

Matthew 2:2

Where is the newborn king of the Jews? We saw his star as it rose, and we have come to worship him.

After Thought

Ponder this for a moment. The Almightiness of God moved in a human arm. The love of God now beat in a human heart. The wisdom of God now spoke from human lips. The mercy of God reached forth from human hands. God was always a God of love, but when Christ came to the earth, love was wrapped in human flesh.

Matthew 19:5

Matthew 19:5

Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh.

After Thought

Oneness must be continually nurtured through honest and humble communication. Always remember that God gave us two ears and one mouth that we might listen twice as much as we speak.

Luke 2:40

Luke 2:40

And the child grew and became strong; he was filled with wisdom, and the grace of God was on him.

After Thought

Jesus is the perfect example of what it means to grow up.

We used "Hulk" as an example of growth and strength because he is the largest pit bull in stature, yet is even bigger in heart. At 18 months he weighs 174 pounds and is very loving and affectionate.
