LET’S TALK ABOUT SIN!

God is completely righteous. That doesn’t just mean that He follows the rules. Of course He does – they’re His rules. But He goes beyond that. He always does what is right for you. He knows you inside and out. He only allows things into your life that will help you grow and become the person He knows you can be; knows the things that will make you more like Jesus.

That doesn’t mean that everything that happens to you came from God. People make the choice to sin and it can have a huge effect on a lot of lives; but sin is never God’s will. Sometimes satan will throw hurtful things into your life. God allowed him to do that with Job – the bad things that happened to Job did not come from God, but he knew what job was going through and made everything come out right in the end.

That’s what’s cool – God can even take people’s mistakes and satan’s wicked plans and turn them into something good. Romans 8:28 says, ” and we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose”. He is so good at doing right. He takes even the awful stuff in your life and turns it into something great – something that makes you stronger and brings you closer to Him.

CHOOSE YOUR WORDS CAREFULLY!

How many times have you heard, ” Don’t let your mouth get you in trouble“?
Even having heard that advice, how many times have you let your mouth run out of control? Maybe you went off on your mom and she grounded you for the weekend. Maybe you called your brother a name and he punched you in the nose. Maybe you said something unkind about someone, they heard about it, and now they’ve sworn to get back at you.

Solomon, the writer of Ecclesiastes, is considered one of the wisest man ever. He knew that once you say something to somebody, take it back. Proverbs 18:21 says that ” death and life are in the power of the tongue”. It’s true. Your words are Powerful. They can encourage, inspire, comfort, or explain; or they can hurt, bite, sting, or devastate. Choose your words carefully and make them good. Count to 10 before you spout off a bunch all the insults you’ll later regret. Your words can carry ” death” or send out ” life”! Which will you choose?
