Do not listen to foolish advice

Do not listen to foolish advice,
Lest you end up paying the price.
For many have desired sinful pleasure,
Only to lose their life’s treasure.

Wisdom speaks clearly and loud,
Learn from her and be not proud.
Hearing wise words is a good tact,
When followed with the right act.

God desires to see wisdom in all believers,
In that they be prudent in the age of deceivers.
Pray to the Lord for ears that don’t tingle,
So that with false teachers you don’t mingle.

Live for the Lord God

Live for the Lord God O people,
Let your praise go beyond the steeple.
Live wisely in the Spirit of God,
Let your feet with the Gospel of peace be shod.

Live for the Lord God O preachers,
Speak of Christ Jesus to all creatures.
Live with courage and with hope,
So that on the right path you can cope.

Live for the Lord God each child,
And unto Him be fully reconciled.
Live truly for His greater glory,
Act all this out in your story.

What is sin?

It is the glory of God not honored.
The holiness of God not reverenced.
The greatness of God not admired.
The power of God not praised.
The truth of God not sought.
The wisdom of God not esteemed.
The beauty of God not treasured.
The goodness of God not savored.
The faithfulness of God not trusted.
The commandments of God not obeyed.
The justice of God not respected.
The wrath of God not feared.
The grace of God not cherished.
The presence of God not prized.
The person of God not loved.
That is sin.

-John Piper

True

Have faith when in prosperity

Have faith when in prosperity,
Don’t forget to have integrity.
When you are free from strife,
Don’t forget God who gave you life.

Have faith when in prosperity,
Don’t forget to have clarity.
When you are free from suffering and pain,
Don’t forget your love for Christ to maintain.

Have faith when in prosperity,
Don’t forget to have charity.
When you are free from being poor,
Don’t forget to remain a good doer.

Refrain from being impulsive

Refrain from being impulsive,
Lest your actions become repulsive.
Then from people don’t expect praise,
So don’t be like the one who strays.

Refrain from giving blindly to emotions,
Lest in your life you have demotions.
Then from the Lord don’t expect commendation,
So don’t choose the path of desolation.

Refrain from foolish rambling,
Lest your reputation you be gambling.
Then at Judgement Day don’t expect a smile,
So don’t speak words that are vile.

Should Christians have medicines?

Any Christian can take note that the Bible never tells us to avoid medication nor does it say to avoid doctors. In fact Jesus himself confirmed that the doctors (physicians) are important for the recovery of those who are unwell. Please refer to the following verses:

  • And Jesus answered them, β€œThose who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick. (Luke 5:31)
  • On hearing this, Jesus told them, β€œIt is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick. I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners.” (Mark 2:17)

Most doctors in their treatment of those who are ill, often prescribe medicines to them. So its Biblical to get to the doctor if you are unwell and then have medicines.

The Lord has caused medicines to exist and be discovered. So sensible one’s won’t despise them but have them as per their needs. Even the world after Judgement Day the Tree of Life will be used for healing the people.

In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations. (Revelations 22:2)

Don’t bother to have any sort medicine but always look for good medicine. This is where many get dismayed due to choosing the wrong medicine and then start fearing doctors and medicine. Pray for wisdom to know the right medicines to take and also that you get the right diagnosis by your doctor.

A joyful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones. (Proverbs 17:22)
