Discussion for Luke 6

    If we speak about people who do not follow these words above, perhaps we need to dig further into our own eye. Even a simple cloud passing through will cast a shadow on the ground and if that cloud says to the waters below. Why do you temptest so? Why so dark, confused and angry?
    I believe that we are all clouds and water. Responsible for how much light we let shine through us.
    To I Am
    From ME

    I, like everyone else, have known people like this in our lifetime, whether it be family or friends. It isn't an easy task, but if you work hard enough, a difference can be made. Maybe not with all, but even if it is a few, that's at least something.

    It's simply impossible in human understanding... But we can boldly take the step if we completely believe in God. If we do what GOd has commanded us to do then only we will reap the benefits in terms of blessings, good health, prosperity.. cos that's Gods word..

    In imitation of Jehovah God, we can hope for good and do good towards those who may treat us poorly. This may bring about a change in the person's behavior towards us.

    We are not capable of keeping the laws of God by our own human merits, but praise God that we have an advocate that gives us access to the Father subject to our repentance of sin in Jesus Name, we are presented blameless to the Father by the Righteousness of His Son Jesus, blood bought and forgiven, a gift of love from our heavenly father.
