Seeking His Kingdom, as a child.
Postulating His Word, understanding to not lean on mine.
Not interested in disputes in details.
So close to 18 hours working, just getting home, beginning to take a break.
May I say I fasted from rest?
Given G-d, you, and i.
From G-d’s point of view, when i look at you, if i judge you, His servant, i have a large block of wood blinding my perception, judgement of you. At the same time in/from His point of view what i am judging of you, to Him, is as dust.
It seems reasonable also, from G-d’s point of view, when you look at me, if you judge me, His servant, from His point of view, what you judge of me is but a speck of dust, while your perception is blinded by a large beam of wood.
Yet either way, you and i are both His servants, and we are both in our flesh filthy, but dead to our flesh. And cleaned by His Blood, in faith, sanctified.
Hmmmm. Just postulating.
What I am understanding is Love, Love, Love. His first, Him first, you next as myself.
“Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child shall in no wise enter therein.”
Luke 18:17 KJV
“Him that is weak in the faith receive ye, but not to doubtful disputations.”
Romans 14:1 KJV
Would Jeremiah 31:31 come into play here?
“Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah: Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; which my covenant they brake, although I was an husband unto them, saith the Lord: But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the Lord, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people. And they shall teach no more every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the Lord: for they shall all know me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them, saith the Lord: for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more.”
Jeremiah 31:31-34 KJV
1 Corinthians 13 King James Version (KJV)
13 Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal.
2 And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing.
3 And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing.
4 Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up,
5 Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil;
6 Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth;
7 Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.
8 Charity never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away.
9 For we know in part, and we prophesy in part.
10 But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away.
11 When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things.
12 For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.
13 And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.
King James Version (KJV)
