Everyone Has a Contribution

Everyone has a contribution to make to this world. I still have time to figure out what my contribution will be.

The more I learn what my contribution is the more I know I have always had it wrong. My worries have been to excel in finances, my way of living, the “me” factor. I strive to live how I want, drive what I want, and do what I want. Don’t get me wrong, I consider others. I just consider them in MY own way.

The more I read I learn. The more I learn the more I appreciate the TRUTH.
I am finally learning what my contributions to this world are. Let me break a few of them down…

Matthew 5 and 6To be conscious of my spiritual need; be mild-tempered; be hungry and thirsty for righteousness; be merciful and pure in heart; be a peacemaker. I should be the salt of the earth and not lose my strength. I should be a light of the world.*Matthew 5:3-9, 13-16

I must not store up treasures on this earth, yet I should store treasures in heaven because for where my treasure is, there my heart will be.*Matthew 6:19 I cannot slave for God and for Riches. I must stop being anxious as to what I will eat or drink, or about what I will wear. *Matthew 6:25-34

I am so excited to learn my contributions that I should make to this world. I am thankful to finally be on the right path to figure them out. I can’t wait to grow as I learn more and apply them to my life.

There is No Man on Earth who Never Sins

There is no righteous man on earth who always does good and never sins. -Ecclesiastes. 7:20

“When we look carefully at ourselves in the mirror of God’s Word and see flaws, even evidences of selfishness, we might become discouraged. If that ever happens to you, reflect on the successful man in James’ illustration. James did not stress how quickly the man fixed the problems he detected or even that he was able to correct every blemish; rather, James says that the man ‘continued in the perfect law.’ *James. 1:22-25 He remembered what he saw in the mirror and kept working to improve. Yes, keep a positive view of yourself and a balanced view of your imperfections. Continue to peer into the perfect law, and work to maintain your spirit of self-sacrifice. Jehovah is willing to help you, as he has helped so many of your brothers who, although imperfect, can and do have God’s favor and blessing.” written by the Examining the Scriptures-2015: Daily Text, Monday, September 7

*New World Translation: 22 However, become doers of the word and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves with false reasoning. 23 For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, this one is like a man looking at his own face in a mirror. 24 For he looks at himself, and he goes away and immediately forgets what sort of person he is. 25 But the one who peers into the perfect law that belongs to freedom and continues in it has become, not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work; and he will be happy in what he does. 

Love Not in Word but in the Truth

“…we should love, not in word or with the tongue, but in deed and truth.” – 1 Job 3:18

I am sometimes guilty of showing my love with word and not in my deeds. It is easy to do in this fast paced world. It seems there is little time to share and care.

As said by many, ‘time flies’.

By the time over worked and over stressed days get finish with me; I do not have much energy to nourish my love ones with good deeds at 100%.

I am conscientious of where I feel there’s need for improvement. I keep working at it every day: being used by Jehovah God to be the reason for someone’s joy; the cause of someone’s growth; the insight to someone’s process; the support to someone’s positive need; the love of someone’s life; the logic to someone’s conflict; the ying to someone’s yang; be the map to spiritual balance to someone’s unbalanced confused journey.

Time is precious and I should make bigger efforts to show my love not just with the tongue, but in truth.
