I like this pic of obama, good pic of him..........
But a brother or sister, that I have barely heard speak - and never even heard not even 1 bible verse come from their mouths............coming up to me, expecting me to give them some "king attention" --------------------- I FIND THAT HARD TO DO!
Several years ago at the apostolic christian church of america............................there was one older sister came up to me and THERE WAS A SLEW OF LIGHT IN HER EYEBALLS OK, so you knew that ok this sister has laboured for the lord! Well she expected me to give her the "kings treatment" and I didn't fully, I smiled, I shook her hand, I think I tried to esteem her high, pretty sure?????????????????? (but she was expecting you know "extra" from me)
And then this older sister sat next to me 2nd half of church and started SINGING A HYMN IN ANOTHER LANGUAGE.......(she fully spoke english and well)..........and I got that heebie geebie feeling up my neck that she was CURSING ME BAD, I'm pretty 100% that whatever she cursed me with stuck on me and it's still on me potentially today.
She must've died after that, she was old real old, she never went to church again that I know of post that day probably cursing me.
But I am leading to something here, the importance of humility...................1 Peter 5:5 "Likewise, ye younger, submit yourselves unto the elder. Yea, all of you be subject one to another, and be clothed with humility: for God resisteth the proud, and giveth grace to the humble."
This "idea" definately could apply to myself as well - to not think about myself more then I "ought" to Romans 12:3 "For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith." Just happens to be in my mind lately, what paul said, 1 Corinthians 3:7 "So then neither is he that planteth any thing, neither he that watereth; but God that giveth the increase." "any thing" in this verse I am pretty sure means "no big deal" But instead god/jesus is the "big deal"!
