    M-While ones clothes really are a minor issue from one angle on another how one dresses does in a lot of cases mirror ones spiritual depth. Granted whether or not one wears a suit or tie or perfectly does their hair is of very small importance and if that is somthing that consumes on then perhaps a look at why should be in place. On the other hand if one continually dresses in a manner which does not conform to what God has commanded For Modesty it is a clear indication that this person is spiritually imature. If somone is a born again believer and years later still continues to dress in a manner contrary to the laws of God, violating the standards of modesty God has laid up, then a clear sign is given that they are strugling to grow in Christ properly. That to say if ones heart it truly right with God then their dress and clothing standard will comply with what God has laid out clearly in his word. A truly Christlike individual will be striving to comply with the standards set forth in Gods word.

    You are sooo right there is to much jealousy in the church today, I believe that the way that things are going in this world today, we as GOD people need to stop looking and seeking positions and looking at how the other person is dressed but take the time out to do some sole searching of our self and get right with our LORD and Savior , because as it is everyone that 's talking about heaven is not to heaven the WORD says they speak with their mouth but their is far from GOD.what is a position if GOD does not give the position to you, what is it about clothes if your heart is not right with GOD. let 's all seek to get our hearts right.

    Envy is rampant through the church in our society. How often does strife bud up because another sees God using another, or one becomes upset over the recognition that is being given to another instead of themselves. We should be wary over twinges of jealousy that we feel when another is placed in honor as it as a powerful weapon in the arsenal of Satan which he uses well. Many a church split and cause of Christ is hindered because one wants the position and honor that another has. Envy and jealousy often fails to consider the struggles of the other. Moses 's position was very honorable yet was filled with heartache and struggles leading a stiff-necked and ignorant people. Did they also envy Moses the heartbreak, did the envy his struggles or just the glory. It is very dangerous to allow envy to ** the way we see the world and view people.

    God granted the request of the Israelites but at a tremendous cost. How often does God allow us to gain what we so seek. Whether a promotion or new car yet in the end the cost was far greater than we wanted to pay. Many a father has lost his family over a promotion he so desired but was not the will of God. May we show caution in what we ask for constantly seeking and verifying that what we are seeking is not simply a fleshly desire but rather that which our heavenly father would have us to seek.

    God has always a good plan for us because of his love to us he sent his only Son Jesus Christ to save us and give us life in abundance. We must believe and accept Jesus Christ in our lives as he has given a full authority from our Holy Father. Praised and thanked to Jesus from his precious blood that shed for us. His blood is a symbol of his love and mercy to us. Thank you Lord Jesus Christ for loving us unconditionaly. you are so faithful and sweet loving father to us you always give us your favour, goodness and mercy in everyday of our lives. Thank you Jesus and i believe you Lord that your word is true and purified seven times. Amen and i love you and i will walk with you thru tears and joy I will trust you
