Matthew 6:1-7 thoughts from ReMix

Matthew 6: 1-7 thoughts- You can read the whole chapter here.

Verse 1: Be careful not to do acts just so people can see you doing them, for there will be no reward in Heaven for you.
Verses 2-4: When you give to the needy, don't do it just for show. Do it in secret, doing it because you want to, and the Lord will reward you.

Verses 5-7: When you pray, don't pray like a babbling pagan (which means someone who doesn't know what he's doing). Don't pray on street corners, just so people can see you. It's okay to set an example, but don't pray just so people can see you.

Bottom line: Don't do things just for attention, do them because you want to and you will be rewarded in Heaven

A little Proverb or five

A fool spurns his father's discipline, but whoever heeds correction shows prudence. The house of the righteous contains great treasure, but the income of the wicked brings them trouble. The lips of the wise spread knowledge; not so the hearts of fools. The Lord detests the sacrifice of the wicked, but the prayer of the upright pleases Him. The Lord detests the way of the wicked, but loves those who pursue righteousness. Stern discipline awaits him who leaves the path; he who hates correction will die.
-Proverbs 15:5-10 (NIV)

Mmkay, Here's a little vocabulary for ya that I didn't really know:

Spurn: to reject something disdainfully
Disdainfully: feeling of contempt for someone or something regarded as unworthy or inferior
Heeds: to pay attention to
Prudence: the ability to govern and discipline oneself by the use of reason.

In todays terms, :verse 5 "A fool rejects his father's discipline as unworthy, but whoever pays attention to the correction trying to be given to him, shows that he is able to govern himself by reason.

Do not boast about tomorrow...

Do not boast about tomorrow, for you do not know what a day may bring forth.
He that conceals his sins does not prosper, but whoever confesses and renounces them finds mercy. He who rebukes a man will in the end gain more favor than he who has a flattering tongue.

-Proverbs 27:1,28:13,23

Prayer is the soul's sincere desire,
Utter'd or unexpress'd
The motion of a hidden fire
That trembles in the breast.

Prayer is the burden of a sigh.
The falling of a tear;
The upward glancing of an eye,
When none but God is near.

Prayer is the simplelst form of speech
That infant lips can try;
Prayer, the sublimest strains that reach
The Majesty on high.

Prayer is the contrite sinner's voice,
Returning from his ways;
While angels in their songs rejoice,
And cry, "Behold he prays"

Prayer is the Christian's vital breath,
The Christian's native air;
His watch-word at the gates of death;
He enters heaven with prayer.

The saints in prayer appear as one,
In word, in deed, and in mind,
While with the Father and the Son
Sweet fellowship they find.

Nor prayers is made of earth alone;
The Holy Spirit pleads,
And Jesus, on the eternal throne,
For sinners intercedes.

O Thou, by whom we come to God,
The life, the truth, the way!
The path of prayer Thyself hast trod:
Lord, teach us how to pray!

Footprints in the sand

This has always been Jenna's favorite poem...It's comforting to know that the Lord carries you

Footprints in the Sand

One night I dreamed I was walking along the beach with the Lord.
Many scenes from my life flashed across the sky.
In each scene I noticed footprints in the sand.
Sometimes there were two sets of footprints,
other times there were one set of footprints.

This bothered me because I noticed
that during the low periods of my life,
when I was suffering from
anguish, sorrow or defeat,
I could see only one set of footprints.

So I said to the Lord,
"You promised me Lord,
that if I followed you,
you would walk with me always.
But I have noticed that during
the most trying periods of my life
there have only been one
set of footprints in the sand.
Why, when I needed you most,
you have not been there for me?"

The Lord replied,
"The times when you have
seen only one set of footprints in the sand,
is when I carried you."

Sunny with a high of 75

I'm sunny with a high of 75,
Since You took my heavy heart and made it light.
It's funny how you find you enjoy your life,
When you're happy just to be alive.

There IS a difference between a 'Homeschooler' and 'doing school at home'

Okay, So, today, I had to drive with a driving instructor and I was to observe this other high school student after I had driven. He was a homeschooler. I'll give you the difference.

A 'Homeschooler':

-Has a comb over
-Never leaves the house
-Doesn't know how to socialize
-Has enormous glasses
-and dresses like this:

While, a person who is homeschooled:
-is normal
-has no problems having a normal conversation
-is conscience of how huge glasses make you look
-is social.

There is a big difference. I'm homeschooled in case you were wondering :)
