Proverbs: Love your Neighbor Part 1

‘27Do not withhold good from those to whom it is due, when it is in your power to act. 28Do not say to your neighbor, “Come back tomorrow and I’ll give it to you”— when you already have it with you.’ ~Proverbs 3

Ask it

Seek it

Find it now

Wisdom demands it

Will you show it now?

.

There is no greater love than this

To love your God

To love your neighbor

As yourself

Love one another

Don’t ignore

Each other

Now

.

Plans are on the table

Desire is in your heart

And then the voice is calling you

“Please! Please!”

You angrily turn away

The desire for you is too great

And the voice is calling you

“Please! Please!”

So you must

Because it is right

.

Do the good

You ought to

Do the good

In your power

.

And all around you

People vie for attention

Demanding things of you

Respect, honor,

Help me! Help!

And you don’t want to be bothered

.

Give each what they’re due

Especially the chosen few

.

Love each

God gave you love that is new

Love each

Especially the chosen few

.

Do you ever ask God for help?

Do you ever seek Him?

Does He ever not answer?

Then do you the same for one another

Do you the same for your brother

.

Ask it

Seek it

Find it now

Wisdom demands it

Will you show it now?

Luke 11:

9“So I say to you: Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. 10For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened. 11“Which of you fathers, if your son asks forf a fish, will give him a snake instead? 12Or if he asks for an egg, will give him a scorpion? 13If you then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him!”

Romans 13:7

“Pay everyone what you owe him: taxes to whom taxes are due, revenue to whom revenue is due, respect to whom respect is due, honor to whom honor is due.”

Galatians 6:10

“Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to everyone, and especially to the family of faith.”

Deuteronomy 24:15

“You shall give him his wages on his day before the sun sets, for he is poor and sets his heart on it; so that he will not cry against you to the LORD and it become sin in you.”

Luke11:

“5Then Jesus said to them, “Suppose you have a friend, and you go to him at midnight and say, ‘Friend, lend me three loaves of bread; 6a friend of mine on a journey has come to me, and I have no food to offer him.’ 7And suppose the one inside answers, ‘Don’t bother me. The door is already locked, and my children and I are in bed. I can’t get up and give you anything.’ 8I tell you, even though he will not get up and give you the bread because of friendship, yet because of your shameless audacity he will surely get up and give you as much as you need.”

James 4

“17If anyone, then, knows the good they ought to do and doesn’t do it, it is sin for them.”

“13Now listen, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go to this or that city, spend a year there, carry on business and make money.” 14Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes. 15Instead, you ought to say, “If it is the Lord’s will, we will live and do this or that.” 16As it is, you boast in your arrogant schemes. All such boasting is evil. 17If anyone, then, knows the good they ought to do and doesn’t do it, it is sin for them.”

Proverbs: Humbleness Before the Father

“6For the Lord gives wisdom; from his mouth come knowledge and understanding; 7he stores up sound wisdom for the upright; he is a shield to those who walk in integrity, 8guarding the paths of justice and watching over the way of his saints. 9Then you will understand righteousness and justice and equity, every good path; 10for wisdom will come into your heart, and knowledge will be pleasant to your soul; 11discretion will watch over you, understanding will guard you, 12delivering you from the way of evil, from men of perverted speech, 13who forsake the paths of uprightness to walk in the ways of darkness, 14who rejoice in doing evil and delight in the perverseness of evil, 15men whose paths are crooked, and who are devious in their ways.” ~Proverbs 2

Seek after the Lord

For He is good in all His ways

In Him are the treasures of wisdom,

Of truth,

Of life

Found

.

In Him are all good things found

Yes, and if you seek after Him

He promises to be found

And He will wrap you up in His arms

He’ll protect you,

Love you,

Watch over you

To the very end

.

But how indeed can He

When we do not humble our hearts

Do not submit to His ways

Do not bend our knees to our King?

Let’s submit to the Lord

Let’s humble ourselves in His sight

Let’s daily think on Him in delight

.

We are the children of the Lord

Adopted by the Lord

Our Father in Heaven

Let us submit to Him

Our loving Father

And let Him provide

All our needs

Let Him overshadow us

In His wings

Let Him love us

Unconditionally

.

He told us

What is good—

What does the good Lord require

Of us?

To do justice

To love kindness

To walk in humility

With our God!

~

Micah 6:8

He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?

“All of you, clothe yourselves with humility toward one another, because,

‘God opposes the proud but shows favor to the humble.’

6Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time. 7Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.” ~1 Peter 5

“’God opposes the proud but shows favor to the humble.’

7Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. 8Come near to God and he will come near to you. Wash your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded. 9Grieve, mourn and wail. Change your laughter to mourning and your joy to gloom. 10Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up.” ~James 4

Luke 14:11

For everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, and the one who humbles himself will be exalted.”

2 Chronicles 7:14

If my people who are called by my name humble themselves, and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land.

Ephesians 4:31-32

Let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor and slander be put away from you, along with all malice. Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you.

“3Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ. 4For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight. In love 5heb predestined us for adoption to sonshipc through Jesus Christ, in accordance with his pleasure and will— 6to the praise of his glorious grace, which he has freely given us in the One he loves.” ~Ephesians 1

Proverbs: Seek the LORD

“33but whoever listens to me will live in safety and be at ease, without fear of harm. 1My son, if you accept my words and store up my commands within you, 2turning your ear to wisdom and applying your heart to understanding—3indeed, if you call out for insight and cry aloud for understanding, 4and if you look for it as for silver and search for it as for hidden treasure, 5then you will understand the fear of the Lord and find the knowledge of God. 6For the Lord gives wisdom; from his mouth come knowledge and understanding. 7He holds success in store for the upright, he is a shield to those whose walk is blameless, 8for he guards the course of the just and protects the way of his faithful ones.” ~Proverbs 1-2

Even much fine gold;

Sweeter also than honey

And drippings of the honeycomb.

11Moreover, by them is Your servant warned;

In keeping them there is great reward.” ~Psalm 19

“11For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. 12Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. 13You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. 14I will be found by you,” declares the Lord, “and will bring you back from captivity.

Do not forget what has been taught you

The goodness of the LORD is upon you

The strength of His love overpowers you

Do not forget what has been done for you

A prayer in the heart

The Lord is infinitely good

A prayer on the tongue

He plans the good of His people,

The glory of His Name

Let it be

He puts to justice murderers

And extends the arm of love

He puts to justice the thief

And gives abundantly to those He loves

Bring it out

You need to speak it

He tears down the strongholds of the proud

And builds up the fortress of the humble

You need to ask it

But provides what is needed, and very much more!

Seek ,seek

Seek it

The Lord knows what is good and right

It is time to knock, knock

At the door

He overflows with righteousness

.

And from this remember

He does the same for your sisters and brothers

And from this remember

We all were like our lost sisters and brothers

As God extended the hand of mercy

So extend your hand

As God extended the arm of love

So extend your arm

Obey Him out of deep love for Him

As He deeply loves you

Obedience to Him is love of others

So deeply love them

Remember what has been taught you

So deeply love

~

A man is desperately wicked

Planning schemes of harm in his heart

But provides what is needed

Wicked man knows even so

What is good

He knows it deep down

1 John 3:

19This is how we know that we belong to the truth and how we set our hearts at rest in his presence: 20If our hearts condemn us, we know that God is greater than our hearts, and he knows everything. 21Dear friends, if our hearts do not condemn us, we have confidence before God 22and receive from him anything we ask, because we keep his commands and do what pleases him. 23And this is his command: to believe in the name of his Son, Jesus Christ, and to love one another as he commanded us. 24The one who keeps God’s commands lives in him, and he in them. And this is how we know that he lives in us: We know it by the Spirit he gave us.

Luke 11:

5Then Jesus said to them, “Suppose you have a friend, and you go to him at midnight and say, ‘Friend, lend me three loaves of bread; 6a friend of mine on a journey has come to me, and I have no food to offer him.’ 7And suppose the one inside answers, ‘Don’t bother me. The door is already locked, and my children and I are in bed. I can’t get up and give you anything.’ 8I tell you, even though he will not get up and give you the bread because of friendship, yet because of your shameless audacitye he will surely get up and give you as much as you need.

Sermon on the Mount: Do not Worry

24“No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money. 25Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? 26Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? 27Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?

28“And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. 29Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. 30If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you—you of little faith? 31So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ 32For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. 33But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. 34Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.” ~Matthew 6

Master

The flesh

Always crying out

“I need! I need!”

Always demanding of me

What I cannot give

I’m burdened down

I’m burdened

.

I cannot satisfy

Even if I try

I cannot satisfy

You

.

Master

The LORD

Always crying out

“Follow Me! Follow Me!”

Always carrying me forward

Down to my knees

I must obey Him now

I must obey

.

He says He can satisfy

All that I need

He can satisfy

Me

.

Look up to the sky

See the birds

Flying high

They do not worry

About tomorrow

They take life

One day at a time

Is not life of more worth

Than food?

And yet your Heavenly Father

He feeds every one of them

How much more

Will He feed you

You of little faith?

Seek His kingdom out

Seek it out

.

Look down at your feet

See the grass

Twirled in the ground

They do not worry about tomorrow

They have no concept of time

They are here today

Gone tomorrow

Is not the body of more worth

Than clothing?

And yet Your Heavenly Father

Clothes them in splendor

In the flowers of the field

How much more will He clothe you

Oh you of little faith?

Seek out His righteousness

Seek it out

.

Yes, there will be troubles for you

Tomorrow

Yes, there will be need

But focus first on God glorified

He will make your way straight

Do not burden yourself with worry

He will provide

He will provide

And do not worry

That you He will despise

For all the wrong you’ve done

You He has chosen as His own

His very own

And He can never despise His own

Seek first His kingdom come

And His righteousness

He will provide

You are precious in His eyes

He will provide

For you

“31So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God. 32Do not cause anyone to stumble, whether Jews, Greeks or the church of God— 33even as I try to please everyone in every way. For I am not seeking my own good but the good of many, so that they may be saved.” ~1 Corinthians 10

“8Remember Jesus Christ, raised from the dead, descended from David. This is my gospel, 9for which I am suffering even to the point of being chained like a criminal. But God’s word is not chained. 10Therefore I endure everything for the sake of the elect, that they too may obtain the salvation that is in Christ Jesus, with eternal glory.

11Here is a trustworthy saying:

If we died with him, we will also live with him; 12if we endure, we will also reign with him. If we disown him, he will also disown us; 13if we are faithless, he remains faithful, for he cannot disown himself.” ~ 2 Timothy 2

“16So I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh. 17For the flesh desires what is contrary to the Spirit, and the Spirit what is contrary to the flesh. They are in conflict with each other, so that you are not to do whatever you want. 18But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law.

19The acts of the flesh are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery; 20idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions 21and envy; drunkenness, orgies, and the like. I warn you, as I did before, that those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of God.

22But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law. 24Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. 25Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit. 26Let us not become conceited, provoking and envying each other.” ~Galatians 5

Sermon on the Mount: Satisfied

“6Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled.” ~Matthew 5

I am so thirsty

I am so hungry

I am so weary

Of never being satisfied

I am sad

So I drown myself

In useless pleasures

I am angry

So I fill my mouth

With hurtful, stabbing words

But in the end

I feel nothing better

In the end

I am still empty

.

Come, come

All who are weary

Drink Living Water

And eat the Bread of Life

He will put your souls

At rest

When you seek Him

With all your heart

Strength and mind

You will certainly find Him

He will not turn you away

Drink

Thirst no more

Eat

And be satisfied

.

Isaiah 55:1-2
“Come, all you who are thirsty, come to the waters; and you who have no money, come, buy and eat! Come, buy wine and milk without money and without cost.  Why spend money on what is not bread, and your labor on what does not satisfy? Listen, listen to me, and eat what is good, and you will delight in the richest of fare.

28“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. 29Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” ~Matthew 11

 “13You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.” ~Jeremiah 29

Psalm 63:1
You, God, are my God, earnestly I seek you; I thirst for you, my whole being longs for you, in a dry and parched land where there is no water.

John 4:14
but whoever drinks the water I give them will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give them will become in them a spring of water welling up to eternal life.”

35Then Jesus declared, “I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never go hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty.” ~John 6
