Conflict Resolution And you husbands must love your wives and never treat them harshly. Patience is better than pride. Be at peace with everyone, just as much h as possible. Do things in such a way that everyone can see you are honorable. For you will hate one and love the other, or be devoted to one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money. Then he will fill your barns with grain, and your vats will overflow with the finest wine. How absurd to think that wealth brings true happiness!
I will never forsake you. So if we have enough food and clothing, let us be content. But people who long to be rich fall into temptation and are trapped by many foolish and harmful desires that plunge them into ruin and destruction. For the love of money is at the root of all kinds of evil. But their trust should be in the living God, who richly gives us all we need for our enjoyment. Tell them to use their money to do good.
They should be rich in good works and should give generously to those in need, always being ready to share with others whatever God has given them. By doing this they will be storing up their treasure as a good foundation for the future so that they may take hold of real life.
Store them in heaven where they will never lose their value and are safe from thieves. If your profits are in heaven, your heart will be there too. You do not belong to yourself, for God bought you with a high price. So you must honor God with your body.
Instead, let the Holy Spirit fill and control you. Instead, fear the LORD and turn your back on evil. Then you will gain renewed health and vitality. At the end of the ten days, Daniel and his three friends looked healthier and better nourished than the young men who had been eating the food assigned by the king.
So after that, the attendant fed them only vegetables instead of the rich foods and wines. Loving Your Spouse 1 Corinthians Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude. Love does not demand its own way. Love is not irritable, and it keeps no record of when it has been wronged. It is never glad about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out.
Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance. This is a summary of all that is taught in the law and the prophets. I have given you an example to follow. Do as I have done to you. Just as I have loved you, you should love each other. Hate what is wrong. Stand on the side of the good. Love each other with genuine affection, and take delight in honoring each other.
If they are thirsty, give them something to drink, and they will be ashamed of what they have done to you. I will make a companion who will help him. This explains why a man leaves his father and mother and is joined to his wife, and the two are united into one. If one person falls, the other can reach out and help. But people who are alone when they fall are in real trouble.
And on a cold night, two under the same blanket can gain warmth from each other. But how can one be warm alone? She is worth more than precious rubies.
Her husband can trust her, and she will greatly enrich his life. He gave up his life for her. So again I say, each man must love his wife as he loves himself, and she must respect her husband.
Treat her with understanding as you live together. Repeat them again and again to your children. Talk about them when you are at home and when you are away on a journey, when you are lying down and when you are getting up again.
If you do, they will become discouraged and quit trying. I am the LORD. The disciples told them not to bother him. For the Kingdom of Heaven belongs to such as these. Personality Issues 2 Peter 1: Self-control leads to patient endurance, and patient endurance leads to godliness. Godliness leads to love for other Christians, and finally you will grow to have genuine love for everyone.
It is foolish to belittle a neighbor; a person with good sense remains silent. Let everything you say be good and helpful, so that your words will be an encouragement to those who hear them.
Self-Control A person without self-control is as defenseless as a city with broken-down walls. Here there is no conflict with the law. They must have strong faith and be filled with love and patience. Look forward to the special blessings that will come to you at the return of Jesus Christ. Then your faith will produce a life of moral excellence. A life of moral excellence leads to knowing God better. Knowing God leads to self-control.
Self- control leads to patient endurance, and patient endurance leads to godliness. Rejoice in the wife of your youth. She is a loving doe, a graceful deer. Let her breasts satisfy you always. May you always be captivated by her love. So do not deprive each other of sexual relations. God will surely judge people who are immoral and those who commit adultery. For a man is actually loving himself when he loves his wife. Song of Solomon 7: Come, my love, let us go out into the fields and spend the night among the wildflowers.
Let us get up early and go out to the vineyards. Let us see whether the vines have budded, whether the blossoms have opened, and whether the pomegranates are in flower. And there I will give you my love. The Lord protects me from danger — so why should I tremble?
What can mere mortals do to me? Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about what happens to you. He will be with you; he will neither fail you nor forsake you.
