    Romans 15:1-2

    We then who are strong ought to bear with the scruples of the weak, and not to please ourselves. Let each of us please his neighbor for his good, leading to edification.

    I'm not a Christian but I love the 23 psalm of David: I am ready for the world when I get to reciting this one.

    "The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.
    He maketh me to lie down in green pastures:
    he leadeth me beside the still waters.
    He restoreth my soul:
    he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.
    Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
    I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
    Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies:
    thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
    Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life:
    and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever."

    Man where do I start?

    There are many books that I enjoy but if I had to put one It would be The Gospel according to St. John. This Gospel is more for the gentile. There are many scriptures that are quite eloquent and inspiring but the one that is most relevant to today's sitution is 2 Chronicles 7:14.

    14 if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.

    Now ain't that the truth.


    Peace

    Ecclesiastes 5:1

    Guard your steps when you go to the house of God; to draw near to listen is better than to offer the sacrifice of fools; for they do not know that they are doing evil.

    peace Akilah,

    Ezekiel 3:4

    And he said unto me, Son of man, go, get thee unto the house of Israel, and speak with my words unto them.

    I like this verse from the prophet as it translate to the "reader" to get up & go teach your people what u you yourself have been taught with no fear for if the creator be with u, who can be against U. This is a Universal message to all that once again, is left to the reader to decide if the knowledge they have obtained thus far is sufficient to pass on to others!

    Peace & love sis.................
