For Which We Stand

United We Stand Stronger As Americans

Philippians 3:7 says, “But what things were gain to me, those I counted loss for Christ”. We must come to realize that things that seem to be of profit to us pale in comparison to the unsearchable riches of Christ. Colossians 2:3 says, “In Whom are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge”. Proverbs 16:16 says, “How much better is it to get wisdom than gold! and to get understanding rather to be chosen than silver!” Paul prayed for us in Ephesians 1:17-18 saying, “17 That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him: 18 The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of His calling, and what the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints”.

                                                         

Everything and everyone must take a second place to our devotion to Christ who is the Anointed One with the precious Anointing of God.  Luke 14:26-27 says, “26 If any man come to Me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be My disciple. 27 And whosoever doth not bear his cross, and come after Me, cannot be My disciple”. A disciple is a disciplined follower of the Lord Jesus Christ. It takes true discipline to put the Lord, His Word, the Holy Ghost, and His love above everything else in our lives. This discipline is only attainable through our cooperation with the Holy Ghost each day. Luke 14:33-35 says, “33 So likewise, whosoever he be of you that forsaketh not all that he hath, he cannot be My disciple. 34 Salt is good: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be seasoned? 35 It is neither fit for the land, nor yet for the dunghill; but men cast it out. He that hath ears to hear, let him hear”. In summarization, it is only the disciplined followers of the Lord that are actually considered to be salt in this sick and sinful world. Those that are not disciplined in their walk with the Lord are actually of no benefit to anyone. May we all cooperate with the indwelling Holy Ghost and change accordingly. Amen. Hallelujah!

Ten Commandments of Human Relations

The fundamental issue in human ethical behavior is summarized by Jesus in what we have come to call "The Golden Rule." Jesus put it this way:

So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets (Matthew 7:12 TNIV).

It asks us to test our treatment of others by putting ourselves in their place. Treat others the way you would want them to treat you in the same or similar circumstance.

Somebody took that principle and translated it into Ten Commandments of Human Relations. You may have seen this anonymous piece, for it circulates in a variety of settings. In case you have missed it, I am reproducing it here.

Speak to people. There is nothing as nice as a cheerful word of greeting.

Smile at people. It takes 72 muscles to frown, only 14 to smile.

Call people by name. It is music to anyone’s ears to hear the sound of his or her name.

Be friendly and helpful.

Be cordial. Speak and act as if everything you do is genuinely a pleasure. If it isn’t, learn to make it so.

Be genuinely interested in people. You can like almost anyone, if you try.

Be generous with praise, cautious with criticism.

Be considerate of the feelings of others. There are usually three sides to a controversy — yours, the other fellow’s, and the correct one.

Be alert to serve. What counts most in life is what you do for others.

Live with a good sense of humor, a generous dose of patience, and a dash of humility appropriate to being human.

Made in God’s image, all of us have something to be valued!

The great challenge in human experience is not work skills, but people skills. That is, research has shown that the majority of people who fail in their vocation do so because they cannot get along with people.

You might think through the meaning of these ten common-sense ideas for your own workplace and personal activity. But what about the larger setting for your daily life? These principles work everywhere you go, for they are about showing respect to the people you meet in all those places.

Made in God’s image, all of us have something to be valued, affirmed, and acknowledged by others. But let it begin with us to acknowledge it in them. As the cycle of giving and receiving enlarges, the human community comes alive.
