Good Morning!

Hello everyone! It is the weekend! Thank the good Lord! It is time to close myself in and study. Yeehah!! I have been fussed at for not posting enough...and rightfully so. I apologize to everyone that has been just hanging on the edge of their seats to see what exciting tidbit I will come up with next. :o)
Seriously though, I am sorry to have neglected the site for so long.

Today I want to post about how we are supposed to treat one another. This is a subject that comes easy for some and not so easy for others. One of my children is so sensitive that he is always thinking of how his actions will affect other peoples feelings and my other son has to be constantly reminded by saying things like, "What would you feel like if someone said that to you?" Could it possibly be a genetic thing? I say that because one is adopted and they were both raised in the same atmosphere. Who knows? Maybe it is just the difference in personalities?

Anyway, the Bible says, Matt 18:21 Then came Peter to him, and said, Lord, how oft shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? till seven times?

Mat 18:22 Jesus saith unto him, I say not unto thee, Until seven times: but, Until seventy times seven.

and...Luke 6:35 But love ye your enemies, and do good, and lend, hoping for nothing again; and your reward shall be great, and ye shall be the children of the Highest: for he is kind unto the unthankful and [to] the evil.

and...Eph 4:32 And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ's sake hath forgiven you.

and Matt 5:44 But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;

and...John 13:34 A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another.

and...Lev 19:18 Thou shalt not avenge, nor bear any grudge against the children of thy people, but thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself: I [am] the LORD.

I don't know EXACTLY why I felt led to post on that, but I did...so I did. I hope that everyone has an especially blessed weekend.
