    Learning to be Content

      The Bite Not that I speak from want, for I have learned to be content in whatever circumstances I am.  – (Philippians 4:11) So I have a confession to make on this bite, one of my struggles is being content. Something when you have everything you can imagine you can still experience not being content. I have been reading the whole Philippians book for the past couple of days. I’m learning a lot about Paul.  He is in prison, but so happy. Paul is not letting anything or anyone steal his joy. He is so joyful, even in his suffering. The Digest In own my life, I can’t say…

    Being Half Obedient

    The Bite:    1 Samuel 15:22 But Samuel replied, “What is more pleasing to the Lord:    your burnt offerings and sacrifices    or your obedience to his voice? Listen! Obedience is better than sacrifice,    and submission is better than offering the fat of rams.   The Digest:   The Lord gave an order Now go and completely destroy the entire Amalekite nation—men, women, children, babies, cattle, sheep, goats, camels, and donkeys.” 1 Samuel 15:3   Saul disobeys He captured Agag, the Amalekite king, but completely destroyed everyone else.  Saul and his men spared Agag’s life and kept the best of the sheep and goats, the cattle, the fat calves, and…

    Forgive One Another

    The Bite: Matthew 6:14-15 For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive others their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins. Matthew 18:35 “This is how my heavenly Father will treat each of you unless you forgive your brother or sister from your heart.” The Bite simply breaks down like this: Give Forgiveness. Receive Forgiveness from the Father. Jesus teaches this in the parable of the unmerciful servant.  For a personal example, You have sinned against a person and you beg God for forgiveness.  But, when that same person you sinned against, commit…

I will test them in this to see whether or not they will follow my instructions. The Lord was going to provide the complaining Israelites with rain each day. These people were whining and complaining thinking they were going to starve to death.  In this verse we see the Lord, providing the food from heaven daily. He was providing what they need for each day. He tested them to see who would…

Just as I have loved you, you should love each other. 35 Your love for one another will prove to the world that you are my disciples.” The Digest How You Love Proves to the World You are His! Jesus commands we love each other. Love in these two verses: Verse 34 is a welcoming, entertaining, dearly love, which is how Jesus loves us. Verse 35 is the affection of love, brotherly love, which is how we love others.  He loves us with that deep passionate love. The way we love others shows whether or…
