Double-minded--a mixture of dark and light...
by Patricia Ann 10/14/2022
A yelling voice - a gentle tone.
A tormented soul - a soul redeemed.
Eyes as black as coal-a dark cold stare.
Or tear filled eyes that show they care.
Condescending, sarcasm that cuts to the bone.
Or gentle words spoken in a genuine tone.
One is dark.
One is light.
And they are as different as day is to night.
A word from our Lord...
Matthew 23:25-28 “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you clean the outside of the cup and of the dish, but inside they are full of robbery and self-indulgence. You blind Pharisee, first clean the inside of the cup and of the dish, so that the outside of it may become clean also. “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you are like whitewashed tombs which on the outside appear beautiful, but inside they are full of dead men’s bones and all uncleanness.
James 4:8 "Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you double-minded."
My prayer for today is simply that we daily put on the mind of Christ, who is
goodness and love. May we operate in obedience to His Word and never harm another person with harshness or vicious and vile talk or evil ways. May we fall on our knees in repentance and ask forgiveness of our sins so that the evil one never gets a stronghold on our lives. May we praise God for He is good and His love endures forever. It is He who loves us the Most!
Love and blessings to ALL in Jesus' name. Amen.
