what marks will we leave in society

we are fortunate to have the grace to be born and to live alive in these times,

several challenging times,What things can we bring before God when judgment comes for self-defense. I may look ridiculous to readers, there is a time when the body will come and we will leave it and it will rot but where will our souls go either to eternal life or the pit of fire? ,It is time now to change our behavior so that we can leave a positive mark in society.

I mean if you can help others do the same, if you have the gift of praying for others pray, you have the gift of healing use that gift, let each one stand in his place correctly. if each one stands firm we are a great army we are going to change the world so that it can do the will of God

stay blessed sis

Hello Valem,
Your courageous charge reminds me of Psalm 90:12 "Teach us to number our days, so that we may gain a heart of wisdom". Indeed life is but a short stop on earth in light of eternity, and we should make the most of time when we have breath. It is a very sobering reminder, thank you.

It is a such a wise encouragement to serve others with the gifts that we have such as prayer, healing, even listening and offering friendship. Because we always think of how we can help with our hands or helping the underprivileged, and that is important.But we often forget the other non-tangible gifts God has given us that we can use to serve others with, which are really important and life changing too.
I appreciate your message sis
Stay blessed:)

What marks, Valem? This is a question we should all ask ourselves. Thank you so much for reminding us.

Earlier today, I read about our sister Vweta, through the tribute posted by a distinguished member of this great family, Jill Langhus. Although I was reading about her for the very first time; never had the privilege to have known or met her, I was touched by her fighting spirit and the great impact she had on the life of others within her relatively short lifespan.

After our sojourn here on earth, we must be accountable to our Maker.

Are we ready?

Hello, Valem,

Thank you for reminding us to live accountably knowing that we don't know the time and day we will leave this world.

Please include this, "if it is encouraging, let him encourage" (Romans 12:8). I feel like I'm living under God's mandate when I encourage our sisters here.

Thank you for sharing!
