Friendly Reminder: Love Others No Matter What Happens

Romans 12: 12

From time to time, people seem to forget or doubt what has been long established.

So in reminding us of such realities, be joyful...
Clap your hands, all you nations; 
   shout to God with cries of joy. 
For the Lord Most High is awesome, 
   the great King over all the earth. 
He subdued nations under us, 
   peoples under our feet. 
He chose our inheritance for us, 
   the pride of Jacob, whom He loved. 
God has ascended amid shouts of joy, 
   the Lord amid the sounding of trumpets. 
Sing praises to God, sing praises; 
   sing praises to our King, sing praises. 
For God is the King of all the earth; 
   sing to Him a psalm of praise. 
God reigns over the nations; 
   God is seated on His holy throne. 
The nobles of the nations assemble 
   as the people of the God of Abraham 
for the kings of the earth belong to God; 
   He is greatly exalted. 
- Psalm 47
Remember also these gems, these rubies, these portions of gold when considering the things people in high and low places do; whether they be honorable kings of the earth, or pretenders to an established throne:
In the Lord’s hand the king’s heart is a stream of water 
   that He channels toward all who please Him. 
A person may think their own ways are right, 
   but the Lord weighs the heart.

The way of the guilty is devious, 
   but the conduct of the innocent is upright.

The Righteous One takes note of the house of the wicked 
   and brings the wicked to ruin.

Whoever shuts their ears to the cry of the poor 
   will also cry out and not be answered.

When justice is done, it brings joy to the righteous 
   but terror to evildoers.

Whoever strays from the path of prudence 
   comes to rest in the company of the dead.

The wicked become a ransom for the righteous, 
   and the unfaithful for the upright.

Whoever pursues righteousness and love 
   finds life, prosperity and honor.

One who is wise can go up against the city of the mighty 
   and pull down the stronghold in which they trust.

Those who guard their mouths and their tongues 
   keep themselves from calamity.

The wicked put up a bold front, 
   but the upright give thought to their ways.

There is no wisdom, no insight, no plan 
   that can succeed against the Lord. 
- Proverbs 21: 1-2, 8, 12-13, 15-16, 18, 21-22, 23, 29, 30
Be at peace regarding all things, remembering that Yeshua is Lord, the King of kings, and the Lord is God.
