BRF–Matthew 5-7

Or Book Review Monday, as is the case for  me this week.   And I have to admit that I only read it once, so I don’t think that I got anything really deep out of it.  Between getting a puppet skit and an Awana council time lesson ready for last week, I just didn’t get to read this passage as much as I would have liked.

However.

I have also already read everyone else’s, cause I’m a little out of practice with BRF,  and I forgot the rules.  😉

So, there’s really not much else to say about persecution that Jenn, Anne and Shannon didn’t already cover.  But I do need to say that I don’t like the thought of it.  At all.  But, I need to be sure that I’m living my life in such a way that if persecution to Christians does come here, I won’t just be looked over.  I’d rather be persecuted for what I believe, than not be persecuted because what I believed wasn’t evident in my life.  Hopefully that made sense.

I also like 6:27–“Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life?”  I often get caught up in the “how’s and why’s”, and forget that God has a perfect plan.  The trivial things that I so often find myself worrying about, He is in complete control of.  I just need to remember it!!!

And one more thing–7:7″Ask and it will be given to you, seek and you will find, knock and the door will be opened to you.”  Ask, seek and knock.  Not just expect, assume, and wait.  God will do His part, but first, I need to do my part.

That’s it for today.  Nothing at all earth-shattering, just a few things for me to remember.

    Can you believe this is the first time I’ve had a chance to sit down and catch up on blog reading. Great review. I’m with Jenn, very cool way of putting it. I expect and assume all the time.
