Be slow to speak

You must all be quick to listen, slow to speak, and slow to get angry (James 1:19; NLT).

Do not judge others (Luke 6:37; NLT).

Forgive anyone who offends you (Colossians 3:13; NLT).

Love your enemies (Matthew 5:44; NIV).

Pray for those who hurt you. (Luke 6:28; NLT).

************************************

Be slow to speak,
But always quick to listen.

Be slow to judge,
But quick to understand.

Be slow to take offence,
Quick to forgive.

Be slow to criticise,
But quick to help.

Be slow to anger,
But be quick to love.

Be slow to blame,
But always quick to pray.

Love all

Don’t just pretend to love others. Really love them (Romans 12.9; NLT).

Do not judge others, and you will not be judged (Matthew 7:1; NLT).

***********************

Love all
Exactly as,
And where,
They are,

Striving
To hear,
Accept,
And understand.

Then
You will not
Be quick
To criticise,

Nor will you
Judge them,
Punish,
Or condemn.

Forgiveness and healing

Lord God, at last,
I think I understand –

Forgiving those who hurt me
Heals my body,
Mind,
And heart,

But, far beyond these three,
It heals my soul.

**********************************

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 6:12,14-15; NIV).

Forgive us our sins as we forgive those who sin against us (Luke 11:4; NLT).

Father, forgive them, for they don’t know what they are doing (Luke 23:34; NLT).

Don’t sin by letting anger control you. Don’t let the sun go down while you are still angry (Ephesians 4:26; NLT).

Lord, be merciful to me; heal my soul; for I have sinned against You (Psalm 41:4; NKJV).

He shall preserve thy soul (Psalm 121:7; KJV).

You understand

He forgives all my sins (Psalm 103:2; NLT).

The Lord is my shepherd; I have all that I need (Psalm 23:1; NLT).

Imitate God, therefore, in everything you do (Ephesians 5:1; NLT).

We will speak the truth in love, growing in every way more and more like Christ (Ephesians 4:15; NLT).

The Lord – who is the Spirit – makes us more and more like him (2 Corinthians 3:18; NLT).

**********************************

Lord, you understand,
Love,
And forgive me;

There’s nothing else
I’d ask you, Lord,
To do.

Help me
To do the same,
For other people,

So I become,
Lord Christ,
Much more like you.

Father, forgive them, for they don’t know what they are doing (Luke 23:34; NLT).

Forgive us our sins, as we forgive those who sin against us (Luke 11:4; NLT).

Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you (Matthew 5:44; NIV).

*************************

My mother,
Who is old,
Is slowly dying.

She’s never
Going to say
She’s sorry now.

Help me
To accept this,
To forgive her,

To understand,
And love her, Lord –
Somehow.

Your purpose

 

Lord God,

At last,
I understand
Your purpose –

You want us
To become Love,
Just like you.

 

**********************************

A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another (John 13:34; NIV).

Then God said, “Let us make human beings in our own image, to be like us” (Genesis 1:26; NLT).

Speak the truth in love, growing in every way more and more like Christ (Ephesians 4:15; NLT).

Put on your new nature, created to be like God (Ephesians 4:24; NLT).

Imitate God, therefore, in everything you do (Ephesians 5:1; NLT).

God is love (1 John 4:16; NLT).

We shall be like him (1 John 3:2; ESV).
