Violence Is Deadly

But they lie in wait for their own blood;
They ambush their own lives.
So are the ways of everyone who gains by violence;
It takes away the life of its possessors. — Proverbs 1:18-19

So much is said in these 2 little verses.

There is hope for the oppressed, those who are sought out by violent people, that judgement will come eventually to those who seek violence.

I would think that these verses would strike fear in the violent person for their own blood will spill requiring their very lives. They who live for violence will become victims of their own violence, paving a way to eternal destruction.

When I think about people who are living their lives to gain by violence, it saddens my heart. They miss the sweet fellowship and love of the Holy Father. They miss the companionship and guidance of the Holy Spirit and they miss the contentment and peace only found in our Holy Lord, Jesus Christ. All that on this side of eternity. WOW!

I am troubled that the one who lives by violence will experience turmoil for eternity not ever knowing personally the God who created them.

Does this at all motivate you to prayer and sharing God’s Word in your everyday speech? Only God can change a life but we can be the intercessor and mouthpiece for our Lord. Are you serving Him in this capacity?

I thank the Lord for His Word and speaking through it. To God be the glory!!!!

Continually seeking Him,

The Greatest Thing In All My Life: Serving You

Mark Pendergrass
The greatest thing in all my life is serving You.
The greatest thing in all my life is serving You.
I want to serve You more; I want to serve you more.
The greatest thing in all my life is serving You.

As each one has received a special gift, employ it in serving one another as good stewards of the manifold grace of God. Whoever speaks, is to do so as one who is speaking the utterances of God; whoever serves is to do so as one who is serving by the strength which God supplies; so that in all things God may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom belongs the glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen. — 1 Peter 4:10-11

serving the Lord with all humility and with tears and with trials which came upon me through the plots of the Jews; — Acts 20:19

not lagging behind in diligence, fervent in spirit, serving the Lord; — Romans 12:11

Since we have gifts that differ according to the grace given to us, each of us is to exercise them accordingly: if prophecy, according to the proportion of his faith; if service, in his serving; or he who teaches, in his teaching; or he who exhorts, in his exhortation; he who gives, with liberality; he who leads, with diligence; he who shows mercy, with cheerfulness. Let love be without hypocrisy. Abhor what is evil; cling to what is good. Be devoted to one another in brotherly love; give preference to one another in honor; not lagging behind in diligence, fervent in spirit, serving the Lord; — Romans 12:6-11

Continually seeking Him,
