Commandments (7) - Receiving A Badge of Honor!
- Gramma Cherbear and
her Critters honor their commitment to love each other forever,
no matter what! They look for the good in each other everyday.
They remember to be careful of each others feelings. It is important
they put the needs of others before their own. God helps them
as they pray together and He keeps the desires of their hearts
pure and clean. God gives them His Badge of Honor when they are
faithful to each other.
Have you noticed that
when you try to do good all by yourself, it is very hard? God
knew you would have trouble with that. God says, come to Him
in Jesus name. He will help you, when you are tempted to do wrong,
but do good instead. Blessings come as you obey God. God knows
what is good for you. He knows what will cause you trouble.
Bible says, "...when you are tempted, God will give you
a way out so that you can stand up under it!
says that to "adulterate" something is "to make
it impure or add something which does not belong."
When God brings a
man and woman together in marriage, it is His perfect will that
they be together forever, until one leaves this earth to live
with Him. He created us to be faithful in our commitments and
loyal to each other. When a person acts on their feelings and
destroys a family God has put together, He calls this adultery.
God can help us say
"NO" to drugs, to impure thoughts or actions, and to
being disloyal. God will correct wrong feelings if we ask Him.
When we agree with God, His wonderful peace and joy will return
to our hearts. God's "Badge of Honor" is also a "Badge
of Courage." He will give us the courage to choose to do
what is good in His eyes!
The Beatitudes Blessed Are You!
Our hearts can remain
pure when we love with God's great love. When we put our trust
in what God says is right instead of how we feel, God calls us
peace makers. We are blessed when we do things His way. Living
as God would have us live, with loyalty to God and others, is
our "Badge of Honor." Being a peace maker will bring
blessings to us! God will call us His children. We must tell
others that God gives us the power to do what is right!
