(KJV.) JEREMIAH 4:22
(4) For my people is foolish, they have not known me: they are sottish children, and they have none understanding: they are wise to do evil, but to do good they have no knowledge.
O' LORD, DELIVER US FROM EVIL!
Brethren, today, the voice of the Jeremiah, the prophet, cries out to the world, to turn away from wickedness, rebelliousness, ungodliness, and backslidings; he calls the people foolish because they have not known the ways of the LORD; despite the fact, that the word of the LORD is being spoken to turn them away from the wrath of God, iniquities continued to prevail against humanity; however, as believers, Jesus is our advocate to plead our cases, turn away the wrath of God by his blood grace, when we trespass against him; this grace is also available to all souls on earth, not just believers alone; however, one has to be under the umbrella of Christ's to enjoy his grace.
Fruit of thought, before the flood waters destroyed the earth, Prophet Noah, preached the word of God to warn the people of their ungodlinesses, but they turned death ears upon his words, no one listened or repented of their sins, but rather mocked him; while he built the Ark, they continued to indulged in iniquities until the fountain of the great deep was broken, the windows of heaven were opened, and the rain was upon the earth forty days and forty nights cf. Genesis 6: currently, we hear the gospel of repentance, salvation, and grace being preached around the clock, that Jesus is coming back soon; therefore, let's listen to what Jesus is saying to you and me today, per the scriptures; "And behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last." cf. Revelation 22:12-13. we also read that Prophet Noah and his family members were saved from the flood waters that destroyed the world by the grace of God; today, the question is, are you and I under the umbrella of Christ?
The fact is, we are in the era of end times; either we have not yet discerned the pre events before the dooms day of reconciliation when Jesus Christ appears in the skies to receive believers unto himself or we just don't care about what will happen to our souls on that faithful day; as a result, many souls, still prefer to be in darkness, drinking iniquities like water, cf. Job 15:16; though they might have heard the gospel preached on television medias all over the world or physically from missionaries, who penetrate the remote areas of the world, yet there are still souls who have not repented from ungodlinesses to receive Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, but believe in, worship mini-gods, delaying their salvation and eternal lives.
Dearly beloved, Jesus is saying, if there is anyone one in this world who have not turn over his or her heart to me, the time is running out for you, turn away from believing in other gods, believe in me, come to me now, don't waste anymore time, give our heart to me, tomorrow may be too late for you, repent of our sins today, have salvation, free grace, peace, joy, hope and everlasting life. Behold I come quickly! Peace be unto you! Amen and Amen!

(8) Knowing that whatsoever good thing any man doeth, the same shall he receive of the Lord, whether he be bond or free.
LET'S SOW GOOD SEEDS!
Brethren, there is a reward for everything we do under the Sun, whether good or evil; it does not matter who we are in this world, saved or unsaved, racial ethnicities or genders; when it comes to rewards time for our deeds on earth; the fundamental principle is the same, we reap whatever we sow; there are seed times and harvests times in every soul's life; therefore, let us mind what we do, say to people, how we associate, serve them; regardless of our emotional state of minds, never demean, degrade others, avoid hostility, rather be kind, tenderhearted, love, understandable to their needs, and try as much as possible to help them: for there are angels assign in heavenly places recording the deeds of every soul on earth; whether we are aware or not, the rewards of our deed on earth comes from Jesus Christ, everyone has a file cabinet in heaven where records are stored until the day of recompense; therefore, let us mind our works, what we sow on earth, that on the day of recompense, we receive the goodness and mercies of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, peace, joy and eternal lives. Peace be unto you! Amen and Amen!

(KJV.) GALATIANS 5:13
(13) For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one another.
LIBERTY IN CHRIST!
Brethren, as believers, the word liberty, references to grace, the freedom. privilege to leisurely do whatever we want without restraints or limitations; though grace was available to humanity from the foundation of the world, that grace was given side by side with the wrath of God, whosoever disobeyed him, received punishment as the consequence for violators his word; therefore, that grace was not really a free grace, because a clause was attached to his words to compromised, a price to pay for taking advantage of his grace.
Until Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior came into this world, experienced the level of pressures, at which the enemy tempts souls to violate the words of God; Jesus experienced temptations of the enemy in the wilderness, cf. Luke 4:1-13; and throughout his ministration, enemies set traps for his failure but he overcome them all; at the end of his assignment, alleged, persecuted for no apparent reasons, to the point of condemnation, crucifixion for the sins he did not commit; buried, when he resurrected, ascended into heaven, he gave the Father his feedback as to what is really going on with humanity in this world, pleaded the Father on our behalf, then free grace was given to those who will believe in Jesus, accept him into their heart as the Lord and Savior. Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life, no man comes to the Father, unless by him. cf. John 14:6; therefore, in Christ alone is salvation, free grace, hope, peace, joy and eternal life.
What happened next? Jesus position himself with his blood as the insurance coverage between humanity and the wrath of God, that anyone who believes in him, yet violates the commandments of God, his blood insurance coverage, picks up the price tag, pays for the wrath of God, sets the violator free by his blood; therefore, the true liberty, is in Jesus Christ, to him alone, is free grace.
Dearly, beloved, free grace is available to all those who believe in Jesus Christ; however, let us not abuse this grace, it was expensive, a life and blood was shed to pay for it; therefore, try not to abuse free grace as a license to violate the words of God; rather, realize how fortunate we are to receive and enjoy free grace without the wrath of God hovering over our lives; otherwise, no soul can withstand his wrath, in reference to the current behaviors of humanity, many times, we are in violation of his words; to think of what Jesus did freely for you and me, let us also love and serve one another, cast away resentments, come together as one body, with free grace of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior. Peace be unto you! Amen and Amen!

(KJV.) 1 CORINTHIANS 1:10
(10) Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you; but that ye be perfectly joined together in the same mind and is the same judgment.
THE CALL TO UNITE!
Brethren, let us give God the Father all the glory through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior every day; think of the way he created the world, worked all things together for the benefit of humanity; first of all, he formed man in his own image, breathe into his nostrils his own breath of life, placed them in a beautiful garden, full of fruits and vegetables to enjoy themselves, without hardship, his grace!; secondly, he gave them dominion to rule over all things of the earth; though, he being the creator and ruler of the universe of glory, yet, he withdrew his supremacy on earth, gave man the authority to rule over his creation; his grace!; thirdly, he cares so much about humanity, that gave them the book of life, guidelines, rules, and regulations, to follow, that man would live peaceably with one another, his grace! lastly, when sin prevailed against humanity, God the Father, gave his only begotten Son, Jesus Christ, came to earth, ministered the Kingdom message to transform the heart of the sinful men into his righteousness, that they should not perish but have everlasting life; his grace!
Today's text taken out of Apostle Paul's letter to the church of God in Corinth, he encouraged the believers to be in unity, one accord, to preach the same concept of the gospel of Jesus Christ, to avoid misconceptions that cause divisions among brethren, but judge the people righteously with the same judgments; therefore, let us incorporate this advice into our lives as believers, love one another, unite, as one body of Christ, to preach the gospel truth, avoid divisions, such as "am for Apollos, am for Paul," strives, enviousness, slanderings, the putting down and pointing fingers, stand firmly in the faith, do the will of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior; receive rewards of crown of glories and eternal lives.
Dearly beloved, again, let us unite, be in one accord with one another to serve Jesus Christ; the Holy Spirit works more effectively where there are unities and love atmospherics, for our heart is his temple, if our heart is not spiritually connected to one another in his body, chances are, there is not too much he can accomplish through us; the Psalmist wrote, if the foundation is destroyed what can the righteous do? Psalm 11:3; also, as we preach the gospel, let us endeavor to heal the sick, lepers, lames and the blind treading in and out of our churches on worship days; refer to book of Matthew 10:8. Peace be unto you! Amen and Amen!

(KJV.) EPHESIANS 6:12
(12) For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
THE DAY AND NIGHT?
Brethren, whether we refute the truth of the existence of spiritual warfares operating from world of darkness or not, we live in the darkness of this world, a world controlled by the devil and demonic spirits; and though the world rotates around the sun to cause daylight and nighttime; that does not matter to them; they will warfare with targeted preys to cause caustic and devastating situations in their lives; if you say, they do not really bother me, I will say good for you! regardless, we need to be aware of their existence, to determine how they orchestrate works of evil from the darkness to manipulate the minds, the heart of humanity, and destroy lives.
Many times, these spirits, also known as infiltration spirits, can influence people to do evil works for themselves, friends, family members, coworkers or at times innocent lives; for example, the devil influenced Adam and Eve to disobey the commandments of God in the garden of Eden; cf. Genesis chapter 3; it was the same evil spirit that infiltrated the heart of Cain to hate, strive with his brother Abel to death; Genesis 4:8; surprisingly, there is no level of authority that these spirits would not penetrate with evil works, they influence society with negativities, make people believe that whatever goes on in this world is approved of Jesus Christ because he paid for all our past, present, and future sins, they control the affairs of many governmental establishments, to focus on negative issues that do not pertain to the welfare of its people; another example of how crafty these spirits can operate, influence in the lives of godly people; King David was a man of God, but the devil provoked him to number Isreal cf. 2 Chronicles 21:1, the Lord was displeased with King David's behavior, and smote Isreal for his sins; David also, committed atrocity in the lives of Uriah the Hittite and his wife Bathsheba, cf. 2 Samuel chapter 11, there are many other instances recorded in the scriptures whereby godly people have fallen short of the glory of God because the influences of infiltration spirits.
Brethren; there are no limitations on how these spirits work the minds of souls to do evil works to themselves or others; therefore, let us pay attention to our thought processes, what we think of momentarily, whenever we think of a thought to endeavor on, ask ourselves, is this action alright with Jesus? Ponder on it, relate it to the scriptures, if of the devil, rebuke it away in the name of Jesus, and it will disappear into the oblivion, the devil is a liar, full of deceptions, believers walk in victory forever more.
Dearly beloved, there are spiritual wickednesses in high places targeting believers on the day and nighttime basis, but no weapon formed against us shall ever prosper, .....Isaiah 54:17; therefore, we will fear no evil, Jesus is within and around us, he is powerful and greater than what is in this world; however, let us be readily prepared to rebuke voices of infiltration spirits to do evil against ourselves and others, be careful not to compromise with the devil, to walk into his deceptions to fall into his evil traps and temptations, to believe that life is over for you; believe in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, it is not over yet; fear God, and keep his commandments, depart from evil, seek peace and pursue it. Jesus loves you! Peace be unto you! Amen and Amen!

(KJV.) ST. MATTHEWS 5:43-45
(43) Ye have heard that it hath been said, THOU SHALT LOVE THY NEIGHBOUR, and hate thine enemy.
(44) But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;
(45) That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.
LOVE YOUR ENEMIES!
Brethren, in the above passage of scripture, Jesus ministered to the multitude on the perfect love of God the Father; saying not to hate our enemies, but rather love them; unfortunately, too many of us, find this positive reaction to negative behaviors of others very difficult to assimilate, for one reason or the other, we tend to hang on to past offenses of others, bring into subjection every day of our lives.
What we need to discern is, each and every soul wake up in the mornings by the grace of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, we see ourselves lay down to sleep, but no one knows for sure what happens to our souls throughout the night, until the mornings, when his spirit awaken our mortal bodies back to life; many people go to sleep at night, but never wake up again the next mornings: consequently, we live by the grace of Jesus Christ, if so, it is imperative that we extend his grace to others as well; love our enemies.
Case in point, what people might have said, or done to hurt our feelings; whether their negative behaviors were intentional to hurt our feelings or unintentionally done, as believers, count it all joy, it should not matter at all, "let go, let God, love still."; the blood of Jesus paid for all past, present, and future sins; he says, Love them still, bless them though they curse you, be kind, do good to them, though they may hate you, and when people use you for profitable reasons, but turn around and discredit, defame your names, characters, never pay them back evil for evil, but good for evil, serve them still with joyfulness of heart; for we do all things through Jesus Christ, not by our own might, for recognitions and applauses of men; therefore, let us pray for haters, that the Holy Spirit will transform their behaviors from evil works into good works.
The amazing grace is, God the Father, who sees all the affairs of human heart, and knows what we do to one another in this world, who we are in the spirits, yet, he does not select who enjoys his daily sustenance, at least not yet, until that fateful day when trumpets shall sound in heavenly places; he causes the sun to shine on the evil and good, sends the rain upon the just and unjust souls; his goodness and mercies endures forever; therefore, there is no reason to hate anyone in this world, rather love one another as God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten son, that whosoever will believeth in him, should not perish, but have everlasting life. cf. John 3:16. if so, let us not hate enemies, but love them with the love of God the Father, through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.
Dearly beloved, at times this question puzzles me, "why do believers who are called to transform the world with the gospel, shine as lights to bring souls out of darkness into the marvelous light of Jesus Christ, find the time to hate one another?" this should not be so! believers, let us lay aside our differences, come together as one body and work for the purification of our souls. Peace and love be unto you! Amen and Amen!

(KJV.) JAMES 4:1
(1) From whence come wars and fightings among you? come they not hence, even of your lusts that war in your members?
THE BODY OF CHRIST!
Brethren, it is important to recognize that the enemy's agenda is to destabilize the body of Christ, therefore, he blindfolds the truth of the gospel, infiltrates the hearts of believers with the lust of the flesh, to desire worldly things, fight against one another on issues that do not pertain to salvation and eternal life. the question is, what is going on?
Surprisingly, knowingly or unknowingly, many believers have fallen into his temptations, lies, and deceptions to cause enviousness, enmity, hatred, maliciousness, strife, divisions, sow discords among brethren; we point accusing fingers at one another, not knowing who the culprit is behind the scenes; brethren, the enemy is at work with believers; we wrestle not against the flesh and blood, but against principalities, powers, the rulers of darkness of this world, spiritual wickedness in high places. cf. Ephesians 6:12; therefore, let us not warfare against one another, rather pray, fully discern that if we do the will of Jesus, we are up against the devices of the enemy every day; rise up! come together as soldiers of Christ, lay aside differences to disagree and agree with one another, steadfastly, unshakably, immovably join hands together with faith, spiritually align hearts with one common goal to possess our Christ given positions in this world, to minister the gospel entirely throughout the world with the help of the Holy Spirit, transform lives from darkness to the marvelous lights of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.
We have the power and authority to overrule the lies and deception of the enemy that the body of Christ is contaminated with evil works, and powerless to achieve its goal on earth; the devil is a liar! let us focus on what matters, on daily basis, rebuke the lust of the flesh, that of the eyes and the pride of life, these attributes are gateways to temptations and downfalls of humanity; beware!
Dearly beloved, it does not matter what our interests maybe in this world, to achieve any type of a goal, one has to focus on what matters concerning the agenda; the body of Christ has a goal to achieve in this world, that requires strategic planning and efforts to accomplish; it is up to each and every one of us, to roll up our sleeves, come together around the table of reasoning with love, participate, never act unconcerned, for we are all important branches of the body, some apostles, prophets, teachers, deacons, choristers, ushers, miracles workers etc., therefore, let us reason among ourselves, know where we are, what we are doing, be on one page; this is not the time to point accusing fingers at one another, it is the time for strategic planning to fulfill prophecies; the time is running out, Jesus is coming back soon; therefore, let us work for the purification of our souls; he is counting on you and me to do good works, let us be encouraged to do our best for righteousness sake. Peace be unto you! Amen and Amen!

(14) If ye be reproached for the name of Christ, happy are ye; for the spirit of glory and of God resteth upon you: on their part, he is evil spoken of, but on your part, he is glorified.
Brethren, it is easy to be partakers of the body of Christ but to follow him, do his will diligently, one has to be ready to suffer persecutions, reproaches, at times martyrdoms for righteousness sake; regardless of what happens, dead or living for righteousness sake; Jesus said, "never fear them which can kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul; but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell." cf. Matthew 10:28; therefore, today, if there are saints among us, who are facing hardships for Christ's sake; let us be encouraged not to throw in the towel, give up on our faith, but know that you are not alone, pray fervently, persevere through the situation with self-control no matter how difficult things may be, perceive that Jesus is with you always to the end of days.
Case in point, if we carefully study the lives of the disciples of Jesus Christ, it is clearly recorded in the scriptures, ancient history how many disciples suffered and died for righteousness sake, for example, Apostle Stephen, follower of Jesus Christ, full of faith and power, did wonders and great miracles by the power of the Holy Spirit, at the end of his ministry, he was stoned to death by persecutors, calling upon God, and saying, Lord Jesus receive my spirit. cf. Acts 7:59; today, can you and I do the same for the sake of the gospel? a point to ponder on; also, Apostle Paul wrote in his second letter to Timothy, saying, "Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecutions." cf. 2 Timothy 3:12; therefore, believer's suffering is nothing new under the sun; however, Jesus was crucified, resurrected from the death, overcame the world, believers are overcomers him as well; today, are we in any type of suffering for righteousness sake, it is time for Jesus to pick us up!
Dearly beloved, when we are in the will of Jesus Christ, but being persecuted for righteousness sakes, let us not fear for our lives, worry, have anxieties or be dismayed, rather be happy for the glory of God shines upon our souls, regardless of the states of our sufferings, let us praise him, be bold and brave, strengthen by the resurrection power of the Holy Spirit, stand firmly and finish the course in Jesus Mighty Name and receive crown of glories, be joint heirs with Jesus forever and ever more. Peace be unto you! Amen and Amen!

(4) He that saith, I know him, and keepeth, not his commandment, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.
(5) But whoso keepeth his word, in him verily is the love of God perfected: hereby know we that we are in him.
OH' WHAT A PERFECT LOVE!
Brethren, the first and foremost commandment is to love God the Father, with all our heart, soul and might. cf. Deut. 6:5; the second, is to love our neighbors as ourselves; therefore, love is the key to peace on earth; from morning till evening time, each and every soul turns the key of love to open a heart of others by a simple eye contact, an acknowledgment, a smile, handshakes, hugs, and kisses. from the foundation of the world till present times, the agape love of God the Father through Jesus Christ never changed or failed anyone, but his unfailing love continues to abound on earth forevermore; therefore, if we receive his love on daily basis, let us love one another as well as ourselves.
Love requires an extra act of kindness, that is, to show that we really care about others; at times, holding on to a door for someone walking up behind us, helping an elderly with bags of groceries to the car or changing a flat tire for someone on the highway etc.; it is our kind gestures, the little things that we do for others, that touches the heart of Jesus Christ, and whatever we do to others are not done in vain, but there are earthly and eternal rewards for everything done under the sun, whether good or bad gestures; if we do good unto others, we love God the Father through Jesus Christ, who because of love hang on the cross, died a brutal death to pay for all our past, present and future sins, resurrected on the third day, grant us victory, free grace, peace, and eternal lives: what an amazing love!
Dearly, beloved, love is a chain reaction; if we love one another, we love Jesus Christ, if we love Jesus, we love God the Father, and we become one gigantic circle of love; on the other hand, if any soul resent another, the chain of love it imperfect somewhere in the circle, I pray that none of us, will be an instrument of obstruction to the circle of love; we do not have to wait for the love of others before we reciprocate, love them as well; at times, we have to love those who despise us, that's perfectly alright!; for we love them for ourselves, and to obey the commandment of Jesus Christ; therefore, let us continue to exemplify the love of Christ to one another regardless of our differences, races or genders, shine as lights of love, in the world of darkness, be kind, tenderly hearted, affectionate, do good gestures to others, that the goodness and mercies of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, may continue to follow us all the days of our lives, and forevermore. Peace and love be unto you! Amen and Amen!

CHRIST THE ALL SUFFICIENT!
Brethren, while on this earth, let us entrust our lives into the hands of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior; when in sufferings, pray fervently, supplicate with songs of praises, call upon our Father through the Holy Name of Jesus for deliverances, victories, healings, favors, blessings etc., as we all know, the spirit of Jesus Christ dwells in all the things of creation, Therefore, regardless of what we do on daily basis, believers or unbelievers, some way or another, we interact with Jesus through the air we breathe, vegetations that produce food, livestock, fishes of the oceans, rivers, and wells of drinking waters, etc., Jesus is all and all!
Not that alone, but also, when Adam and Eve sold the birthright of humanity to Satan by believing his lies, disobeyed the commandments of God the Father, ate the tree of knowledge of good and evil, cf. Genesis 2:17, consequently, sin prevailed against grace of God, given to humanity to live abundance life, freely enjoy all things of creation; God the Father decided to reconciled the world unto himself through Jesus Christ the same word of creation; therefore, Jesus came back unto his own creation, but no one recognized him as the true source of light that lighted the souls of men, and in all things of creation, or received him as the son of God, regardless, he ministered the Kingdom words to multitudes, at the end of his ministration, he stood trails for sins he never committed, scrouged, condemned, crucified, went into the pits of hell, and possessed the stolen keys of hell and death from Satan cf. Rev. 1:18; he resurrected on the third day with victory over Satan, turn around, granted the same victory to humanity and free grace to come to the Father through him cf. John 14:6; that those who believe in him should not perish but have everlasting life.
Most importantly, whenever enemies persecute our souls in realms of the spirit or we encounter physical, provokes of enemy forces; my brother, sister, all we have to do is call upon the name of Jesus, miraculously he shows up to deliver our souls from evil; calms the storms of our lives: do this resonate to how powerful the man called Jesus is? Think about it! The answer is up to you and me to decide if we will believe in him or not; I don't know about you brethren but am readily available for his grace.
Dearly beloved, let us give thanks to God, our Father, for his only begotten Son Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, for without Jesus, what will life be? this is a point to ponder on! Therefore, let us embrace the grace of Jesus Christ, come unto him with all our burdens, believe in him, have salvation, peace, joy, the hope of his second coming and life everlasting. There is nothing else in this world worthy besides the grace of God the Father offered through our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ! Therefore, if anyone is waiting yet to accept him into their hearts, this is the time to come to him! Jesus is waiting for you! Peace be unto you! Amen and Amen!

(10) And the people asked him, saying, What shall we do then?
(11) He answereth and saith unto them, He that hath two coats, let him impart to him that hath none; and he that hath meat, let him do likewise.
WHAT SHALL WE DO THEN?
Due to the fact that we live in a busy world, we are always in a rush to go somewhere; at times, we see our own family members as statues moving around in the house, there are no physical or emotional connections, everyone lives in their own bubble shells with gadgets friendships; in the mornings, we barely say hello to family members, occasionally, we remember to hug, kiss, show love, say hellos, goodbyes and see you later to love ones, before we head out into the world full of challenges; today, let us pay more attention to people than we normally would on daily basis, it is a small world, therefore, it pays to be friendly to people we come in contact with every day, for no one really knows tomorrow, we may need the help of the same people we have neglected in the past, failed to love and care for; also, the summer holidays are here, winter is gone for a season, let us slow down our busy schedules, spend some quality time with family and friends, especially those of us with younger kids; time and tides wait for no man; also, allow adequate time either in the mornings, afternoons or evenings, pay special attentions to loved ones, co-workers, friends, say hellos to neighbors across the streets, as we tread through the journeys of life, show that we care about them.
Dearly Beloved, the people asked Jesus a question, what shall we do then? Jesus said, (i) He that have two coats; let him impart to him that hath none; this answer sounds like closet cleaning time to me, if so, then, let's give away the extra clothing that we do not need, but still hanging in our closets, chances are someone needs them, for there is joy in giving than to receive cf. Acts 20:35; (ii) he said, and he that hath meat, let him do likewise: therefore, let us endeavor to share our delicacies, barbecues with others, especially, the hungry homeless people sitting on street corners, make them happy: the bottom line of this text is, to be generous, give out of love, share blessings with the needy; for this world is our temporary abode, everything we owe right now is for temporary enjoyments, sooner or later, those things will not matter anymore on the journey to eternity; on the contrary if we share our blessings with others, we find favors in the eyes of God, and there are multiple blessings for doing the will of Jesus Christ; therefore, let us ask ourselves every morning, what can I do for someone today? Jesus will tell you! Peace be unto you! Amen and Amen!
