Stop And Consider


"Stop and consider God's wonders" (Job 37:14).

Venus is now a morning and evening star. Saturn's tilt is such that the rings seem almost "straight across," and the moon is "new." I love to stop and consider the works of God. Proverbs 6:6 tells the "sluggard" to consider the ways of the ant and how we are to be industrious in our lives. Later on (30:25) the writer tells us how the ant prepares for the winter. This is just how we are to prepare to meet the "bridegroom" (Matt.25: 1-13).

There are other things for us to consider... "Consider him who endured such opposition from sinful men that you will not grow weary and lose heart" Heb. 12:3). Think of what Christ went through for us both physically and mentally. Such reflections and considerations keep us strong. They will keep us from growing weary of doing good. The will sustain us when things are just not going the way we expected them to.

Another thing for us to consider is ourselves. We ought to attempt to restore one in sin, "But watch yourself, or you may also be tempted" (Gal. 6:1). We need to know our weaknesses and fortify ourselves against them. We ought to consider what the Lord has in store for us to do. We ought to consider how important our souls are.

Finally, we need to consider one another. "Consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds" (Heb. 10:25). To apply the "Golden Rule" (Matt. 7:12) and treat people right. To indeed be our "brother's keeper," and bear each other's burdens.

I gave you quite a tall list didn't I? Just some things for you to consider..... Have a wonderful day....Go about doing good...Love mark Phil. 4:11
