Some children in a family found that their misconduct finally caught up with them. And their father was mad at them. The children at night prayed about their relationship to their father. Then the next morning they put this sign on their parents’ bedroom door: “Be kind to your children, and they will be kind to you. Yours truly, God.”
Children, like canoes, are more easily controlled if paddled from the rear.
About The Congregation
I wanted to share with my readers the following article from John Smith. It is good advice for members of any local congregation,
“Ponder Your Feet??”
by John Smith
Proverbs 4:26 says to us, “Ponder the path of thy feet, and let all thy ways be established”. God is warning us to take a look at what we are doing and where we are headed. Ephesians 5:15-16 states “See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise, Redeeming the time, because the days are evil.” It is God’s will that we always consider our spiritual condition and make correction where needed so that we can glorify Him. If correction is needed…let us make it and get busy in the Lord. We do no know what tomorrow holds for us! There is much work to be done in His kingdom and in the local work. What work you say?
v Attend all of the services of the church faithfully.
v Set aside some time each day for personal Bible study.
v Teaching the lost the plan of Salvation.
v Teach a Bible class.
v Leading songs in worship.
v Visit the sick and needy—there are many opportunities to assist those who are elderly and/or those who are in need.
v Greet and visit our visitors who come into our assembly. Some are hearing the Word of God and seeing Christians for the first time when they visit our worship services. Let us make them feel welcome.
v Support the work of the church—we need Christians who will shoulder the load and seek out what needs to be done and do it.
If we are going to be useful to God, we are going to have to “Ponder” our paths that our feet are taking us and make corrections if needed. We must all be looking for opportunities for us to better serve our Lord as we ponder our feet!
