Time to Give Up

By Unknown

GIVE UP grumbling! Instead, “In everything give thanks.” Constructive criticism is OK, but “moaning, groaning, and complaining” are not Christian attitudes.

GIVE UP 10 to 15 minutes in bed! Instead, use that time in prayer.
 
GIVE UP looking at other people’s worst points. Instead concentrate on their best points. We all have faults. It is a lot easier to have people overlook our shortcomings when we overlook theirs first.
 
GIVE UP speaking unkindly. Instead, let your speech be generous and understanding. It costs so little to say something kind and uplifting. Why not check that sharp tongue at the door?
 
GIVE UP your hatred of anyone or anything! [excepting sin and error (Psalm 119:104, 128; Romans 12:9), LM]. Instead, learn to love. “Love covers a multitude of sins.”
 
GIVE UP your worries and anxieties! Instead, trust God with them. Anxiety is spending emotional energy on something we can do nothing about: like tomorrow! Live today and let God’s grace be sufficient.
 
GIVE UP TV one evening a week! Instead, visit some lonely, sick person, or someone in need of the gospel. Why isolate yourself in front of the “tube?” Give someone a precious gift: your time! [author unknown]

Unstable Souls Part 1

Christians have always faced spiritual threats, among them the false but alluring teachings of men. The apostle Peter wrote his Second Epistle to guard Christians against the danger of being seduced by false teachers and false teachings. Chapter Two of Second Peter des......
