    Vs. 3-5 A good reminder to do a self evaluation of the things I choose to entertain me. Whether it be TV shows with improper themes, music, or internet videos. I know that individuals who practice what is in verse 3,4 do not have Jehovah God's favor. This helps me to see that I probably can be doing more productive things with my time.

    God said , " Let Us Create Man in Our Image " . Us Our is more then one ! Why ? As God made Adam Eve joined in holy marriage they became one flesh . God sows He is one God, Father Son Spirit, joined in 3 forms . We were made in His image , Body Soul Spirit . God wants us to be a team . As a team , ie. , the body of Christ , we can reflect His light to those in spiritual darkness ! " Hear all Israel the Lord, our God , the Lord is One " ! Unconditional love comes from Above !
