YOUR LOVED ONES

Reflect upon those you deeply love. They are mortal…vulnerable to illness, accident, and death. Express your love for them every day.

SNAKES

There are large deadly Diamondback rattlesnakes where I sometimes walk. I am very careful to avoid approaching them. It is wise to be just as cautious with venomous human snakes.

FAITH, NOT FEAR

Life is very mysterious and sometimes disturbing. Nevertheless, have faith in your Father in all circumstances, not your understanding. Do not fear…fear weakens you to demonic influence and attack.

LOVE YOUR ENEMIES

Do not retaliate against those who seriously, or habitually, mistreat you. Evil NEVER justifies evil…do not succumb to your ego temptation. Forgive them in your heart, and then purge them from your life.
