Obadiah 1:12 – You should not look down on your brother in the day of his misfortune. (NIV 1978)
My Musings – When God raises us up, we should not respond by looking down on those less fortunate. We’ve been down before and should not forget what it was like, and have compassion on others.
My Advice – As God blesses you, do not forget your friends and family who may be not as fortunate as you.
Lamentations 3:22, 23 – Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for His compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is Your faithfulness. (NIV 1978)
My Musings – Even when we are not faithful to Him, His faithfulness never ceases. He may bring discipline into our lives, but it will not consume us. It will, rather, bring correction.
My Advice – Thank God every morning for His faithfulness to you, Do your very best to repay it by being faithful to Him.
