Rambling Thoughts and words of the Prophets
Christ knows the scriptures so well because he was the God of the old testament. It was he to whom the prophets of old spoke
express love and show it
bear testimony and live it
we look back to claim the embers from glowing experiences but not the ashes
when we have learned what we need to learn and have brought with us the best that we have experienced, then we look ahead, we remember that faith is always pointed toward the future.
there is something in us that particularly fails to forgive and forget earlier mistakes in life -either mistakes we ourselves have made or the mistakes of others. that is not good. it is not christian. it stands in terrible opposition to the grandeur and majesty of the atonement of christ.
let people repent. Let people grow. Believe that people can change and improve.
Forgive, and do that which is harder than to forgive: forget. And when it comes to mind again, forget it again.
why is there no witness until after a trial of our faith? because the Lord will not give things to people who have not had the opportunity to grow to a level where they can understand them.
