Recently read that how we make others feel about themselves, says a lot about us. Do you encourage others and try to lift up– or do you attempt to tear them to shreds, kick them a little harder when they’re down? Do you lie to them, try to deceive, misuse, misguide- or can you show enough love and compassion to be honest, and give good biblical instruction even if it’s not what they want to hear. Do you have a positive word for a really negative situation? In Luke 6:45 the Word teaches us that from out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks…we should take a moment to examine what’s in our hearts.

We are soldiers in God’s army. We must stay ready for battle, strap on the belt of truth, put on the breastplate of righteousness, cover your feet with the gospel of peace, pick up the shield of faith, put on the helmet of salvation and grab hold to the sword which is the word of God, and as we pray, begin march into satans’ kingdom, march and destroy everything that is not of God, march until yokes have been broken, march until the chain of bondage have fallen off, march as souls get saved keep marching for we are soldiers in the army of the Lord.
45 A good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart[a] brings forth evil. For out of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaks.
Be blessed, keep God first, and keep looking up.
