In Other Words Tuesday

“Let us remember that, as much as has been given us, much will be expected from us, and that true homage comes from the heart, as well as from the lips, and shows itself in deeds.”
Theodore Roosevelt                                                                                                       Amen, I totally agree with this quote. I am so very thankful for all that God has blessed me with, without Him, I would be nothing, nor have anything. But, due to His love, and kindness, I can be all that I can be through Him, and I have a place to live, food to eat, my bills get paid, we have a vehicle, lovebug has a job, and his health. I am alive. Praise God.  Now, to truly show my thankful heart, it is my God given duty, to pass on the blessings. What does that mean?  It means that I am to show kindness, and much encouragement to others, let Jesus shine through me. Give them the greatest gift ever, Jesus, and His love.  Bless others, as I have been blessed. If given the opportunity to help others, I will. When someone comes knocking on my door, I will answer with a great big smile upon my face, I may be the only Jesus they ever see. Smile everyone, Jesus, and I love you.

Amen and blessings Denise!

Your words are spoken with sincerity and truth! The quote from Theodore Roosevelt originates from the Word of God! (Luke 12:48b)(the b is because it's the last part of this verse)

"From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked.

That part that stands out to me from this quote is "true homage comes from the heart"
and followed by something even more key "as well as from the lips and shows itself in deeds". Just like your words come from your heart and your sweet smile. Otherwise, it's just lip service, if we don't ACT
like in ACTS! We are the church and we'd better start ACTing like it, not just talking the talk, but walking the walk in our deeds.

You thank God so beautifully Denise for the provisions He gives...many times that comes through others, hopefully in the body of Christ. We need to be willing and ready to reach out! To be Jesus, not judge and carry a "holier than thou" attitude! Jesus does shine through you...and PRAISE GOD, He has a purpose for you and your life still.

I love you Denise, your heart and your words and YOU!
always... Peggy
