Hope through trails, getting & keeping your fire. Matthew 5:3-12 Through trails and seasons to see rewards in the end. To know your not working for yourself and for selfish ambitions but for the glory of the Lord. Matthew 5:16 says, “Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glory your Father in heaven.” Matthew 5 is talking about starting inside then out.
Keeping the Commandments. Matthew 5:19 says, “Whoever therefore breaks one of the least of these commandments, and teaches men so, shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven; but whoever does and teaches them he shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.” Cleansing the heart 1st of all and then keeping the law. You can’t keep the law if your not cleansed through the law. A relationship takes two people as one. Receiving and giving… giving and receiving in harmony. You will receive from God as much time and effort you’ll put into Him. Man does addition, God does mutilation.
“Therefore you shall be perfect, just as your Father in heaven is perfect”, says Matthew 5:48 Making the effort or even showing up is just half the battle. God will give you the next step when you finished the first. God is a God of order. You do your part and He will do the rest. You sow what you will reap. Blessing others is reaping in the kingdom.
I got into a fight with my mother for the lack of trust she has towards me. My comment towards her, “Your lack of trust is disrespectful and hurtful.” My mother didn’t replay but God did, saying… “That’s how I feel when you don’t trust Me.”
When you work outside God’s calling for you. Working for selfish ambitions is cutting tithes from Him and His blessing. Your working for God, alone. -tsuLife Author
