Arrows From The Single Years – Part 1

Arrows From The Single Years – Part 1

Reading Time: 2 minutes

All the names here are fictitious.

The home of the Johnson’s has always been tense. Like the humorously wicked characters in Tom and Jerry, they fought constantly. By the way, if you have two boys in the house, don’t allow them to watch Tom and Jerry too often, otherwise, they wouldn’t like themselves!

Bode and Terry Johnson never trusted each other. They were born again, tongue-talking, demon-chasing believers, but they are usually suspicious of each other.

They have been married for six years, yet the issue of trust is still a big deal. The other time Bode traveled out of the country for about three weeks, they still fought on the phone on issues that bothered on trust. They were constantly checking on each other, about who they were with, who visited them, who they visited, and so on until they got on each other’s nerves.

Bode was there, wondering about who his wife might be with at work. Terry too never had peace of mind because she never seemed to know what Bode was capable of doing.

Trust is fundamental to the success of a relationship or marriage, but here they are with their trust for each other in question.

In situations like this, there is usually a source of the fears they have for each other. Something has happened in time past that keeps the trigger of suspicion on all the time.

As they sat to be counseled, I began to probe into their past and beginning from where and how they met each other.

First of all, both of them had come from a home where either of the parents cheated at least once. Whether they agreed or not, they both came into a relationship with some attitude from defective parental examples.

They were both born-again Christians when they met. As a matter of fact, they met in the fellowship. Bode was the president of the fellowship while Terry was the prayer secretary. Both posts were pivotal and they are practically the leaders of the fellowship.

What else did I find out about Bode and Terry?

To be continued tomorrow…

Learning To Share With Those In Need

Learning To Share With Those In Need

Reading Time: < 1 minute

We have to keep learning to share. The bible everywhere talks about sharing and helping the needy. In the Old Testament, the Israelites were instructed to harvest their grains in such a way that the poor and needy will still have something to eat.

In the New Testament, the apostles all shared what they had to take care of those who did not have.

The group of followers all felt the same way about everything. None of them claimed that their possessions were their own, and they shared everything they had with each other.

Acts 4:32[CEV]

Likewise, in the book of Romans and chapter twelve verse thirteen, the writer speaks about helping Christians like you.

Take care of God’s needy people and welcome strangers into your home.

Rom 12:13[CEV]

Another translation puts it this way

Share what you have with God’s people who are in need. Be hospitable.”

Rom 12:13 [GW]

Do you have a friend who is a believer like you, maybe at school, church, or the neighborhood? Do you share what you have with them according to the verse above?

As a Christian, you are supposed to first share with your fellow brethren as the apostles did in the bible. Jesus said we are to love our neighbor as ourselves. keep learning to share.

Your neighbors are your brothers and sisters in the Lord.

May the Lord instill in you a heart of love towards your fellow Christians. Amen

Prayer:
Lord help me love my fellow Christians as commanded. Amen.

Action point:
In what ways can you share your things with fellow Christians who are your friends?

Declaration:
I share my things with those around me.
