Happy Monday beautiful people! 💜
We pray you are reading this blog in good health and in good spirit. How was your weekend? Did any fun festivities or special occasions go on? If so, share them!! I would love to hear about them!! My weekend was pretty interesting! Saturday was wonderful! A big brother of mine had his grand opening Saturday so of course we went to support him!
Sunday was awesome sauce!! This week was my week to cover children’s church. I had about 30 young souls (pic is above) in attendance!! I am thrilled that it is growing every single Sunday!! Our lesson was on free wisdom and how we ought to pray for wisdom, knowledge and understanding daily.
Proverbs 4:4-7 “He taught me also, and said unto me, Let thine heart retain my words: Keep my commandments, and live. Get wisdom, get understanding: Forget it not; neither decline from the words of my mouth. Forsake her not, and she shall preserve thee: Love her, and she shall keep thee. Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: And with ALL thy getting get understanding.”
We want to be wise like Solomon. The title of today blog came about in a discussion. We have actually heard this term quite a few times. (And I am sure that you have as well) But seriously, what IS “holier than thou?” Besides being a rude, vile, ugly term, it is a term that typically describes a person of the Christian faith that believes that they are the second best thing to Jesus Himself.
They do absolutely no wrong, but you are the purest of evil. These people believe that there is no saving your soul, so get prepared to spend eternity in Hell. Now, the true definition is a person that believes that they are better than everyone and indeed more saved or holy than everybody. What is your definition of the term “holier than thou”? Recently I, Janae, have been told that I act “holier than thou”. I will not act like it did not hurt my feelings because it did.
What I can not seem to figure out is why the term has to describe individuals that just want to be right in the sight of GOD. I have heard the term used about some people just because they decide not to smoke, curse or drink and party, etc. In today’s world, if you do not do what everyone else is doing, you are called “holier than thou”.
But is that a proper term to describe somebody that decided to do something different in their lives and make a change for the better? No it is not… This is the very reason so many people turn away from Christianity and refuse to accept Jesus Christ. People, instead of respecting someone’s decision to make a change, they will crucify them and condemn them until they just can not take the abuse any longer. At this time they typically will give in to the pressure and slip back into old bad habits.
Then they are judged and talked about some more. My prayer is for those that are in Christ to continue to stay in Him no matter what. The unbelievers and those playing “church” are going to talk regardless. My prayer is that the body of Christ stands on the Word of GOD and not be ashamed of the gospel. My prayer also is that the lost souls be found and saved; that those who are not ready, get ready before Jesus returns.
Do not let someone condemn you for wanting to do something better and for wanting to live right before God. If they can not support you and realize that maybe they need to do something different too, then it may be time to reevaluate your circle. It has been proven that we are a product of who we hang out with. The question now is, what will YOU produce.
God Bless You All
