Short Reads to Stimulate Long Thoughts

Colossians 3 is completed

Thursday 11-30-2017 Colossians 3  18-21  QT

18 Wives, be subject to your husbands, as is fitting in the Lord.19 Husbands, love your wives and do not be embittered against them.20 Children, be obedient to your parents in all things, for this is well-pleasing to the Lord. 21 Fathers, do not exasperate your children, so that they will not lose heart.

Terry, your wife is to voluntarily submit to you out of her relationship with Me; not forced by you.  Now for you, you are to love your wife as I have loved you.  Never, use intimidation or manipulation with her to get your way.

Remember your children need correction and guidance from loving parents, refrain from beating them into submission but discipline them as needed.  Do not be a father that lives by a double standard, be consistent even with yourself, be willing to apologize, ask for forgiveness, and enjoy the things your children enjoy.

22 Slaves, in all things obey those who are your masters on earth, not with external service, as those who merely please men, but with sincerity of heart, fearing the Lord. 23 Whatever you do, do your work heartily, as for the Lord rather than for men, 24 knowing that from the Lord you will receive the reward of the inheritance. It is the Lord Christ whom you serve. 25 For he who does wrong will receive the consequences of the wrong which he has done, and that without partiality.

************

Terry, serve those in authority over you but do not violate Our relationship in doing so.  Your service is not just for those who are in authority, it is to be done in a manner that is in harmony with with Our Intimacy with each other.  Remember, what is wrong is still wrong even if the one in charge demands that you do wrong and I do not show partiality; wrong will reap its consequences on everyone. 

The buck stops with Me, trust your life to Me.
