Be strong and of good courage, do not fear nor be afraid of them; for the Lord your God, He is the One who goes with you. He will not leave you nor forsake you.” (Deuteronomy 31:6 NKJV)


When I was a child, I was bullied many times by certain kids at school; they were far bigger than me. It was my mother who told me to stand my ground and not to be afraid of them. It was one day when it became too much for me; the bully punched me in the face and run away laughing at me. That night I could not sleep, my heart was filled with anger and I was so impatient to wait for the sunrise and yet I still got to wait for my school began at 1 PM.

 

 

 

A Partner In Crime

Whoever is a partner with a thief hates his own life; He swears to tell the truth, but reveals nothing. (Proverbs 29:24 NKJV)

 

The book of Proverbs was written by Solomon, son of David, King of Israel and Solomon was known to be the wisest man ever exists. What lesson do we learn from the quoted verse above? King Solomon wants us to know that he who partners with a thief shares equally the consequences of their crime (the receiver is as bad as the thief). So, he who divides plunder with a thief is his own worst enemy. Here we learn directly what sin does and how sin ruins the life of him who partner with a thief. Can he escape the consequences?

The Purpose Of The Law

19 What purpose then does the law serve? It was added because of transgressions, till the Seed should come to whom the promise was made; and it was appointed through angels by the hand of a mediator. 20 Now a mediator does not mediate for one only, but God is one (Galatians 3:19-20 NKJV).

 

Every government on the face of this earth has laws to guide its citizen how to live their lives. If we are foreigners in the country we are visiting then we have to respect the laws of the land and we cannot apply the laws of our countries in the country we are visiting. What purpose does the law serve? The law is given to guide our lives and if we break the law, we will pay the consequence for the law we break. If certain crime for instance "Cybercrime" is not known in a given country, that country will add laws for that particular crime.

 

 

The Covenant Keeping God

If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. (1 John 1:9)

 

When I read and meditate upon this verse again today, all of a sudden the beauty of His heart (His forgiving heart) appears in my mind, I am in awe and speechless how the Creator of heaven and earth in Christ Jesus chose to die on the cross for those who believe in Him to pay the penalty of their sins. The cross is the witness of the forgiving God in an unforgiving world. The word “if” is a condition set before us, are we willing to confess our sins? Unless we are aware that we own our own sins, we will not be willing to confess them for we will find so many excuses to defend ourselves trying to prove that it is not really our sins.

Do No Harm

12 For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. (Hebrews 4:12 NKJV)


Those who work in the medical field know the term “Do No Harm”. Why is it so important? It is important because patients put their lives in the hands of those who work in the medical field (doctors, nurses, psychologists, pharmacists, etc.). What if some of those who work in the medical field do not really know what they are doing? Isn’t it dangerous? What if they twist the truth and manipulate patients to benefit themselves? What if they really do not have any empathy towards patients at all? Since no one can read anyone else’s mind nor know the intent of their heart, it is important to know about the background of those you are going to trust your life in.
