Be Careful How You Treat God's Children        Aug. 26, 2006

Lev 25:43 Thou shalt not rule over him with rigor; but shalt fear thy God.

I ran across this Scripture when studying the other day, and that word "rigor" means severity, or harshness. He is talking about how his children treat should treat each other, especially the poor and servants. I know this is written in the Old Testament, but consider what Paul instructed in the New Testament...One always leads to the other. You have an incomplete understanding if you don't accept them both...they are inseparable.

2Ti 2:24 And the servant of the Lord must not strive; but be gentle unto all men, apt to teach, patient,

2Ti 2:25 In meekness instructing those that oppose themselves; if God peradventure will give them repentance to the acknowledging of the truth;

I've been considering that word "meekness" a lot lately. It means a person with power who exercises restraint and uses gentleness, in love. That would be a person more interested in helping the hurting, than wielding the power they have carelessly. They would be more concerned that they exercise that power with gentleness, so it works, not wounds. I'm paraphrasing, but that's what it means. Isn't that the example Jesus Christ set when He walked this earth, having more power within Himself than any other man or woman who ever lived? He set the Standard. How He treats us, that is how He expects-how He requires that we treat others, and one another. If a Christian or a minister is harsh with their children or their congregation, and do not speak the truth in love, it will wound and kill, not make alive, or draw one to the Lord. Be careful how you treat others, or judge others, for what you dish out, the same will be measured back to you.

We are exorted so much in the New Testament to walk in love, love one another, and be ye kind toward one another..Let us not forget His eyes see everything, and know everything, and if we lack love, we can go to the Source and get all we can contain. Anything we do without love will be burnt up and lost in the fire. It won't hold up before His fiery gaze when we stand before Him. When we begin to understand how much He loves us, and how un-deserving of that love we were, it should make us all the more enthusiastic to help others find their way, by living in such a way as His light and love shines through us, because our actions will speak louder than our words. They always do.

Act 20:28 Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood.
