“It is to know God, not just knowing about God.”

Think of the relationships you have in life. Whether it may be with a husband or wife, that special person, family member, parents, friends…the list is endless. You have a special love and bond for them. They are part of your life; an important part. Think how you know them, their personality and their ways, their love and even their little quirks. Now take all that away and imagine you just know them. Period.

Kind of an empty feeling. Uncomfortable. Miss them already for who they are and what they meant to you. Now take that same feeling and apply it to God. Do you know God or just about God? Is it time to really know God and know the source of all love.


Knowing God

“Listen carefully to how a person speaks about other people to you. This is how they will speak about you to other people.”

How often have we all, at some time in our life, gossiped about others. Whether we knew if it was right or not, it probably was just to hurt or knocking that person down for some reason. Gossip inflicts pain, is wrong and hurtful, and just is not the right and loving way we are asked to live.

Next time someone try to pull you in or you hear them going down this gossip pathway, can we show our love and understanding of others by simply saying, “This gossip is not for me,” and simply take that moment and realize what good you have just done.
