LOVE

YOUR DEEPEST NEEDS

As an Encouraging Spouse, you crave approval. It’s in your DNA. You feed off of winning the acceptance of those around you — especially your spouse. You thrive on compliments. You have a built-in radar detector for approval that never turns off. You constantly monitor your approval rating, looking for the slightest movement in either the positive or negative direction. If it goes down, you immediately shift tactics to gain more favor. If you sense your spouse doesn’t like what you’re wearing, even slightly, for example, you feel compelled to try on something different.

In addition to approval, you want affection.

IN SEARCH OF THAT LONG-LOST VERSE

Nearly everyone interested in the Bible has had the frustrating experience of vaguely remembering a biblical passage but being at a loss when it comes to locating that verse in the pages of Scripture. While not all Bibles are physically large, the Bible itself is huge, in terms of its content. In fact, the Bible is not one book, but a collection of sixty-six books, containing over 790,000 words in a typical English version, making it one of the largest single volumes most people own. In addition, most people remember words and phrases better than Scripture references. For example, you may remember that once familiar verse about how “God so loved the world,” but not be able to track it down in the pages of your Bible. However, you may remember bits and pieces of its wording. For example, you may recall that the verse also contains the words “begotten” and “perish.”

ONE LAST CRY

“You know how troubled I am; you have kept a record of my tears. Aren’t they listed in your book?” Psalm 56:8 (GNT)

Ang pag-iyak ay isang uri ng katapangan. Katapangan na harapin ang kasakitan. Katapangan na sabihin sa sarili mo na may hangganan ang iyong kakayahan. Katapangan sa pag-amin na kailangan mo ng tulong ng iba.

Hindi ko makakalimutan ang pinakamatinding pagluha ko sa aking buhay. Naganap iyon sa huling gabi ng burol ng aking ama. Habang sinasariwa ko ang kanyang magagandang alaala, kung paano siya naging proud sa akin bilang anak, para akong isang bulkan na sumabog.

When I was a little girl, my father spent most of his waking hours working at his building supply company, observing construction sites, or socializing with his colleagues and associates. Even though his place of business was only a few blocks from out home, his heart was miles away in a place I could never find.

My father didn’t drink alcohol every day, but when he did, it consumed him. Dad was filled with a rage that always seemed to be boiling just beneath the surface of his tough exterior. When he drank, that rage spewed out like hot lava onto those around him. Unfortunately, my mother was the most common target.

NOT JUST WAITING AROUND

“Among you,” God tells His children, “there must not be even a hint of sexual immorality, or any kind of impurity” (Ephesians 5:3). It’s because of clear commands like this and the reality of our God-given sexual appetites that we face “hammock” moments — moments when we must choose between what our bodies crave and what we know our Lord has instructed.

The temptation may be as seemingly innocent as deciding when to kiss, or as serious as choosing when to sleep together. Whatever it is, the internal struggle is the same. The question boils down to, whom will you believe? Will you heed the clear commands of Scripture and the voice of your conscience, or the voice of compromise that’s offering immediate pleasure? What’s really going to make you happy?

be skillfulDISRESPECT

Disrespect for parents usually begins with disrespect for the Word of God that parents seek to teach to their children. “A fool despises his father’s instruction” (15:5 NKJV). “He who despises the word will be destroyed, but he who fears the commandment will be rewarded” (13:13 NKJV). Sometimes children go off to college or a university and get poisoned by ideas that are contrary to Scripture, and then they come home to tell everybody how stupid and old-fashioned their parents are. If children maintain this haughty attitude, they’ll eventually rob their parents (28:24), curse their parents (20:20), and bring shame to their parents (19:26).

Under the old covenant, children who disobeyed their parents and broke the law were in danger of losing their lives.

commentaryTHE DISOBEDIENT SON

The seriousness of the charge of disobedience to parents lies in the fact that it is a breach of a basic covenant command (5:16), and that the family is an essential means of maintaining the covenant in Israel (6:7, 21-25; cf. Mk. 7:10). Presumably, the disobedience in question is of a very serious kind; the loose life-style indicated by v 20 may simply be a symptom of a determined opposition to the ways of God which the parents have tried to teach (18).

This apparently unnatural law aims to stress the responsibility of parents to
maintain the covenant. Indeed, it fell to parents, in principle, to initiate legal action against a son who threatened the well-being of the whole community because of his defiance of the covenant standards.

protectPROTECT YOUR MIND AND HEART

Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it. Proverbs 4:23

We are the product of the decisions we make each day of our life. That’s why Proverbs tells us to watch over our hearts. We must protect ourselves from deceit, lust, pride, and many other potential pitfalls. A man fights the good fight in his mind all the time. This is where the enemy attacks our weak areas. Here are some ways for you to protect your heart, and in turn, keep your mind fixed on God’s righteousness:

1. Know the truth…

2. Be aligned with God’s Word…

3. Share your discernment of truth with others..

love is a flame

SETTING THE BACKDROP

Friendship is often a great springboard to later romance. When love does bloom, it springs up in the midst of a relationship that may already be mutual, self-sacrificing, and beneficial for both parties. Love blooms well in this type of soil.

When romance grows as it should, two mature individuals begin to forge a lifelong friendship that is based on mutual respect, shared values, and compatible temperaments. Each one gladly makes sacrifices for the good of the other, and each one strives to help the other become the very best person he or she can be. This kind of mutual sacrifice characterizes long-term, highly satisfied married couples — they look out for each other, support each other, speak well of each other, and build each other up.

ENTHUSIASTIC: LIFE IS EXCITING!

Emerson wrote: “Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm.”

There is an extraordinary, dynamic quality about enthusiasm. It is permeated by a victorious attitude so powerful that it sweeps all before it. It brings the personality alive, releasing dormant powers.

The difference between enthusiasm and faith is very slight indeed. Perhaps enthusiasm may be defined as faith that has been set afire. Enthusiasm is one of God’s greatest gifts.

We all have longed to know why something happened to us or to a loved one. It’s understandable. Behind that why is a deep desire to be shown a bigger picture, an explanation, or an outcome that could remotely be worthy of the loss or worth going on in life bearing that loss.

My own whys stemmed from deep disappointment and sadness. In my mind, this was not the way things were supposed to turn out if we pray and believe in the power of God to change lives. I wondered if my prayers were rejected and if this was punishment for my own mistakes and sin. I never felt mad at God, but I did want to know if a failure on my part as a mother or as a child of God made me somehow responsible.

Habang nanonood, sumisingit sa isip ni Vinna na kung tutulad siya sa biker na naging born-again ay kailangan din pala niyang magpagupit ng maigsi at gupit-lalaki. Nagkaroon ng pangitain si Vinna na pinuputol ang buhok niya. Tutol ang buong pagkatao niya sa idea! Hindi niya gusto ang gupit-lalaking buhok. “Lord, parang hindi ko kaya ‘yan,” sabi niya habang nakatutok ang tingin sa TV screen.

In I Corinthians 6, there is a long list of sinners who would not inherit the kingdom of God and at the end, the apostle Paul says to the church in v. 11, “Such were some of you; but you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and in the Spirit of our God.” The church was filled with ex-adulterers, ex-thieves, ex-effeminate, ex-homosexuals, etc…. and we were all ex-sinners as well. But by the grace of God, we were saved — nothing to boast about, nothing to be proud about, nothing to our own credit. We still sin, but now, we have the power to live victoriously in Christ. And when we remember that, we will have more compassion and humility.

The most effective way of ensuring e-safety is to equip adults and children with the critical tools that they need to understand the varied facets of the ever changing digital world. Many adults don’t have the technological know-how to keep track of what teens are up to online. As a result, a victim’s experience may be missed and a bully’s actions may be left unchecked. Even if bullies are identified, many adults find themselves unprepared to adequately respond. Media literacy is the key.

It is important for parents to understand what constitutes cyber bullying and how bullies perpetrate cyber bullying.

On another occasion, while we were having a weekend retreat at our church, we experienced this yet again — the river of God — through worship. We were supposed to have our session on “The Holy Spirit.” About an hour was allotted for this particular session.

As always, we would start a session with a song to ready our hearts for the word. We only sang one song- Love Song (of Christ for the Nations Institute), which was a fast praise song. And at the end when we hit “It’s wonderful! It’s wonderful!” heaven broke loose. That last chord was delivered — and it went on and on and on!

LOVE IS PATIENT

Patience is the ability to be wronged, inconvenienced, wearied, or inundated and yet still wait on God for that person or situation and not retaliate, punish, or give up.

Other words for “patient” are tolerant, forgiving, charitable, big-hearted, openhearted, sympathetic, understanding, enduring, steadfast, constant, unwavering, tireless, undiscouraged, and forbearing.

To be patient is to put up with, make the best of it, grin and bear it, and be uncomplaining. Are we always that way with everyone? Not likely.

WHAT IS STEWARDSHIP?

My father was a great man who set a standard for stewardship that will challenge me for the rest of my life. When he died in September of 2002, I became the personal representative for his estate. I took over his checkbook. Because of my responsibility, and also because I was curious, I went through that checkbook. I found no record of any spending that embarrassed me. I found no record that would have embarrassed my father or his Lord.

My dad’s example teaches a crucial life lesson. Stewardship isn’t just about money. Stewardship is an all-inclusive concept about our faithfulness with all of the time, talent, and treasure God entrusts to us. As Paul wrote in I Corinthians 4:2, “Now it is required that those who have been given a trust must prove faithful.” Stewardship is how we use all of the resources God gives us.
