The devil made me do it.

Have you ever said that? Maybe even thought that? I don’t want to be considered a tool of Satan. There has been way to many times when this happens. We say or do something we think is helpful or justifiable and it turns out to devastate the one who is the receiver. There are times when we are just upset with something that doesn’t involve us and we have to say something about it. Oh my we just can’t keep quiet we have to speak. Satan wants to use those moments to devastate the church. I work in a factory. It seems that people are always worried about what someone else is to doing and how they’re doing it. It seems to always be negative. In these situations people seem to be so terribly negative seemingly to be the tool of the devil.
So here’s the gist of it. Let’s not be that tool that negates the work of God. Let’s be more careful of what we say and do in response to things we don’t necessarily agree with. Let’s be Christ to the world and to do so we need to Love everyone with Christ’s love. Our witness is null and void if we love conditionally.

Do you really?

Marriage hint:
How often do we say we love each other out of habit? Come home from work and what do we say? I love you. Before we go to bed? I love you. I’ve began to think a lot about this lately. I don’t want to say it out of habit. I do love my wife more than ever. 28 years ago April 1st I asked my wife to “go steady” with me, but the love I have for her now is different. My love is stronger, so when I say I love you Michelle Trowbridge I truly mean it.

Whether your dating or married, if you love your spouse, boyfriend, girlfriend, say it and mean it.

Taming the shrue/well the tongue.



Here’s some good marital advice,  remember your wife doesn’t have the same sense of humor as you!  We men sometimes have a time taming our tongue.  Be tender toward your wife in that way guys.  Ladies I have to include you on this, be careful how you react to the words spoken by your hubby, we don’t always think before we speak.  We sometimes say things and mean no harm even though it may seem like it.

 

Love y’all, keep rockin on,

Pastor Andy
