Devotional thought on Quarreling

I was so proud of myself for getting into bed at around 9:30 last night!  I felt so tired but then I laid there until I got my Bible out and read all of Titus.   I love that book... So much good stuff in it.  (I really never studied that book much until after I had my son, Titus)    

The verses that stuck out to me were:


Titus 3:2, 9 ESV (Go read the whole chapter it is so good) 
"to speak evil of no one, to avoid quarreling, to be gentle, and to show perfect courtesy toward all people. But avoid foolish controversies, genealogies, dissensions, and quarrels about the law, for they are unprofitable and worthless."

Now, I am not one to get on a rant about politics and what not but these verses just screamed at me because it is such a good reminder.  The whole election process is too long and too much money gets spent.  There are many issues our country faces and I am just not going to join in on the conversations.  It is worthless to argue with people about the issues.  We all have different issues that we are convicted of and that helps us to vote.  My values are lined up with what my daddy God has aligned in my heart.  The problem is we live in a dark world where more and more people do not know Papa God.  They have never felt his presence and the word church is dark and the thought of going to church is sickening to them.  So as a Christian, along with this verse I just do not see the point in trying to quarrel my beliefs to them.  Our thoughts and view points are so different.  Instead I will live out the command to Love God and Love others FIRST!  When people see the way I live and notice something different then it is my hope that I can share my testimonies and beliefs.  I want to be that witness of love, compassion, and forgiveness.  I want people to truly see God shining through me.  How about you?  

Instead, I see many Christians making so much noise about this and that issue... abortion, homesexuality, debt, conservative, liberal, church/state, etc etc.   I know where I stand on the issues but I am not going to stand up and create  dissension, quarrels, controversies when many of those people have not experienced what true freedom from CHRIST is.  Instead I will not speak evil of people, I will be gentle, and I will show courtesy towards people.  I will kindly listen to peoples stands on issues but I will not start to argue back.  If someone asks where I stand I will boldly stand up and share with my faith shining forth!  

I'm sorry if this sounds like more of a rant then a devo but it really is good scripture and a good reminder to keep our eyes focused on HIM. 

 Love you all and I am praying for you to be BOLD in your FAITH today!  


Feel free to leave your thoughts but remember no quarreling or I will remove comments.

Knot Genie Review and Giveaway

If you have a little girl and have not heard of the Knot Genie then you need to watch the following video:   "The Knot Genie™ and Teeny Genie™ Detangling Brushes were created for every mom that has endured the foot stomping and screaming matches that come with brushing their child's hair. With the Knot Genie, even the curliest, most knotted up hair practically slips through the unique bristle configuration – gently and painlessly. Try the Knot Genie on your kids (or on yourself) – you'll be amazed by the ease of brushing, as well as how it virtually stops breakage and split ends. You've wished for hair brushing standoffs to end. Wish granted." My Review:  Thanks to the Knot Genie for sending me the product to conduct my review.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions expressed are 100% mine.  I know I have grown so tired of my daughter coming to tears every morning when we did her hair. I was becoming to think she was the most
