Evidence of faith?

I have started preparing for next weeks SS lesson (Marks of a Christian) and ran across this statement; "There may be no clearer
evidence of our faith than how we treat our friends." Then a second statement even slapped me harder. "A revealing clue to how humble we really are is our reaction when we discover that one of our Christian friends has sinned. Are we tough or tender?" I am learning that my Christian faith and growth is directly proportionate to how I treat my Christian friends. My closest friend is Mama, I guess I had better start there!

I agree, we often times take the ones closest to us for granted, and as we stay in the Word, and stay sensitive to the "still small voice", we know where we need work. For me, as I continue to strive to keep Christ on the throne in my heart, humility rushes in, or else I am outside the whole abiding thing, and need to make a B-line back to my place in HIS shadow. Have a great day Papa, and Mama!

This is Mama
I just got back from Ladies Bible study and the subject was "Consistency". I am so thankful for God's CONSISTENCY but I know I have a long way to go. I am thankful for God's help and I want to keep growing in HIM. I am thankful for this group of ladies and for our leader who knows her Bible and is being used by God to help us ladies.

Wow! That's something to think about! Reminds me of the saying that we're like tea bags, you don;t know what we're made of until we're put in hot water. Or something like that!

We speak with our actions more than our words some times too. My facial expressions have told volumes to others that I regret now!
