Baby, if you see a child being left out, or hurt, or teased, a part of your heart will hurt a little. Your daddy and I want you to trust that heart- ache. Your whole life, we want you to notice and trust your heart-ache. That heart ache is called compassion, and it is God’s signal to you to do something. It is God saying, Chase! Wake up! One of my babies is hurting! Do something to help! Whenever you feel compassion – be thrilled! It means God is speaking to you, and that is magic. It means He trusts you and needs you.
Something That Helps @ Jumping Tandem
“Wow,” I said out loud, “that just changes my entire perspective on being a guest at a wedding. I mean, I usually just go and cry because it’s so romantic and hopeful and beautiful.” Now, I see that being a guest at a wedding is an amazing privilege. Not something to be taken lightly. It is an invitation to celebrate and to dance and to cry and to witness the beautiful exchange of vows. And it is an amazing opportunity to bow for a moment and invite God to bless them and to keep them and to be gracious unto them — even ’til death do them part.
Let me help you understand those crazy Christians @ High Heel Wearing Hippie Mommy
You see, he has this theory about 4 stages of Christianity.
He calls the first stage, “Simplicity.” This is the stage that Christians are in when they first become Christians, whether that’s when they are children or adults. Most Christians will move beyond this stage, but some never do. The stage is characterized by “black and white” thinking. Christians in this stage will tend to believe that you’re either for us, or against us. It’s all or nothing.
When someone does a cut-and-paste job of Romans 1 @ Bible-Thumping Liberal
Christians suffer from the sins of the depraved mind, then do exactly what Paul says they do. “Who, knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.”
Now continue on to Romans 2, and you’ll see why Romans 1 was written.
