July at Living Word– How do you desire to be treated? Do you criticize & treat others the same way? How we treat others reflects our relationship with God. Turn your failures & sins over to God. Seek His forgiveness as your forgive those around you. So many choices can be stressful. It boils down to 2 choices: Life in Christ or a road to destruction. Do you think laziness could be a spiritual problem? Laziness is not a new struggle. God spoke about it many times. Is it is foolish to live your earthly life as if you will live here forever? How can you manage the resources God gives you during your time here so they will benefit others even when you are no longer here?
