Why should we show compassion to the oppressed and needy?

Truth in Palmyra

From Michael at Jesus Quotes and God Thoughts. Great answer to the question as to why we should help those who need it. “Because God said so.” Yep, that nails it for sure.


From the post:

The simple answer is because God says so. That is it. It is that simple.

Jesus commands that I must love my neighbor as myself. This is the second most important command from God (the first being to love God). That love is translated into compassion.

When asked what is the greatest commandment, Jesus responded that it is to love God with all our heart, mind and strength. But He added that the second commandment “is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself’”.

The Pharisee had asked Him which single command of God is the greatest, but Jesus provided two, stating not only what we are to do, but also how to…

Nothing Between a Praying Soul and God

He Hath Said

Pray without ceasing. – 1 Thessalonians 5:17

Our Lord Jesus Christ in these words assures you that you may pray without ceasing. There is no time when we may not pray. You have here permission given to come to the mercy-seat when you will, for the veil of the Most Holy place is rent in twain from the top to the bottom, and our access to the mercy-seat is undisputed and indisputable. Kings hold their levees upon certain appointed days, and then their courtiers are admitted; but the King of Kings holds a constant levee. The monarch whose palace was in Shushan would have none approach him unless he sent for them, but the King of kings has called for all His people, and they may come at all times. They were slain who went in unto the king Ahasuerus, unless he stretched out his scepter to them; but our…

A Democratic lawmaker in the Virginia House of Delegates proposed a bill Tuesday that would allow abortions through the end of the third trimester of pregnancy. New York Gov.

Consider The Lillies

A New Life

18749.jpgSounds like a good title for a poem! Maybe next time. Today I just simply need to talk, write, chew on some things and see if anyone out there feels the same. Isn’t that how we humans do things? We find those who are similar, feel similar or are going through similar trials and experiences. For surely someone who isn’t similar can’t relate. So we think.

Do you ever find yourself worrying? And I mean worrying. I guess if I were an expert at something, this would be my profession. Worry. Last night 4am to 5am I laid in bed talking to myself and then bringing God in. Back and forth like that for an hour. Something like this…”Well now I know what the problem is. No more worrying what is wrong with my feet.”

And then….”But now this means they will never be the same. They’ve broken down. Collapsed…

50 United States: Christian First Grade Homeschool Lesson 1

The Domain for Truth

This is a Christian Home School Lesson Series for first graders on the 50 United States.

I typically go over two states at a time since we teach our kids multiple subjects during the day and two states at a time seems to be enough.  However if one is teaching one subject at a time I think going over four states at a time would be just right.

Our series’ lesson plan will be in alphabetical order and go over four states at a time.

Are there any other interesting facts you would add for any of the states mentioned?  Feel free to leave a comment!
