Thought: We must be willing to separate from the crowd and follow Christ, even if it means earthly loneliness.
Prayer: Lord God, guide my leadership to be an act of following you. Then it will not be so lonely. And let me never forget the cloud of witnesses in Hebrews 13:1 that have gone before me.
1 Samuel 8:20 -> God goes before us, and we have to do our own share as appointed by Him. No government should take that responsibility, nor should we surrender it.
Proverbs 19:24 ->No sluggards are invited to mansaf!
Proverbs 19:17 ->Don't help the poor for your earthly repayment. Trust it to the Lord God Almighty.
Proverbs 19:14 ->Ask God for a wife. He's the best marriage arranger.
Isaiah 29:13 ->Don't let traditions become hollow and meaningless.
Isaiah 29:14 ->God's wonders aren't always nice.
Isaiah 30:1-3 ->God is our only dependable refuge. Egypt was the world power, the place of learning, economy, and culture, but it wasn't the solution.
Rev. 3:10 ->He holds us if we are faithful. We are faithful by His power and grace. All glory and praise to Him!
1 Timothy 3:2 ->Above Reproach! This is a call to live without opening ourselves up to reasonable accusations. It's also related to being able to show by life and word your response to unfounded accusations.
