Perfect Parent

God is our perfect parent. He is not our sugar daddy, ATM or genie. 

Pray according to His Will and you will get your prayers answered. 

The trick is to know Him well enough to pray according to His Will. 

Avoid the temptation to give Him orders disguised as prayers. Like any parent He won’t be amused. 

Blessings! 

Practical Scripture 

For this is the will of God, that by doing good you may put to silence the ignorance of foolish men—
I Peter 2:15 NKJV

Doing good: caring for widows, adopting orphans & assisting  single parents makes it easier to answer the #prolife critics. 

Since they have no response to the charge of murder of The Unborn,  they try to shift the subject to whether we do enough for children who are born. By volunteering or supporting those who do volunteer,  we silence their charge. 

The big government  crowd thinks that tax money can solve social problems. Money given to politicians might keep the roads (barely) paved but it won’t lift a single parent out of poverty. 

What does YOUR church do to impact the community? Churches are far more effective at changing lives than any government program. It doesn’t matter which party is in Washington DC, God’s Church is always the best answer to a single pregnant girl or an alcoholic veteran. 

Let’s go and do good!

Relationship 

Treat your significant other as prize. Isn’t that how YOU want to be treated? 

Don’t ‘let yourself go’ (appearance) and don’t ‘slack off’ (stop being romantic). 

Think of your relationship as something of great value. Remember when you were single? You worked so hard to present yourself as humble, patient and generous. Do you act that way now? Or do you think of yourself as the prize? Humility  is attractive, arrogance gets old very fast. 

God wants us to win at relationship. He cares about how we treat one another. He is a God of healthy relationship. 

God laughs 

Our enemies primarily use words as weapons against us. God laughs at their words.  

Look how they belch out [insults] with their mouths; Swords [of sarcasm, ridicule, slander, and lies] are in their lips, For they say, “Who hears us?” But You, O Lord , will laugh at them [in scorn]; You scoff at and deride all the nations.
PSALM 59:7‭-‬8 AMP
