Guard Your Heart

When there’s nothing left to say, God’s words are the best way.  ~M

 

In loving memory of Wayne Scheppele… ❤️

He was a man who radiated compassion, and when he spoke, everyone listened intently to his every word.  He was the person who taught me the importance of God’s word and the key to life’s success (Joshua 1:8).  He exuded more wisdom than anyone else I have ever met.  He was the kind of person I wanted to emulate because he knew how to genuinely love people and he loved God with his whole heart.  He was a man who I always suspected was really an angel, living out his life as a human. 

“Mercies are new every day”  ~Wayne Scheppele

From our last phone conversation, here are the passages of scripture he asked me to read.  I invite you to read them too!

Lamentations 3:21-26
Psalm 1:1-3
Matthew 11:28-30
Proverbs 31
2 Corinthians 1-24
The book of Daniel – The prophecy book!

 

The Way of Love

1 Corinthians 13 – The Message (MSG)

1 If I speak with human eloquence and angelic ecstasy but don’t love, I’m nothing but the creaking of a rusty gate.

2 If I speak God’s Word with power, revealing all his mysteries and making everything plain as day, and if I have faith that says to a mountain, “Jump,” and it jumps, but I don’t love, I’m nothing.

3-7 If I give everything I own to the poor and even go to the stake to be burned as a martyr, but I don’t love, I’ve gotten nowhere. So, no matter what I say, what I believe, and what I do, I’m bankrupt without love.

Love never gives up.

Love cares more for others than for self.

Love doesn’t want what it doesn’t have.

Love doesn’t strut,

Doesn’t have a swelled head,

Doesn’t force itself on others,

Isn’t always “me first,”

Doesn’t fly off the handle,

Doesn’t keep score of the sins of others,

Doesn’t revel when others grovel,

Takes pleasure in the flowering of truth,

Puts up with anything,

Trusts God always,

Always looks for the best,

Never looks back,

But keeps going to the end.

8-10 Love never dies. Inspired speech will be over some day; praying in tongues will end; understanding will reach its limit. We know only a portion of the truth, and what we say about God is always incomplete. But when the Complete arrives, our incompletes will be canceled.

11 When I was an infant at my mother’s breast, I gurgled and cooed like any infant. When I grew up, I left those infant ways for good.

12 We don’t yet see things clearly. We’re squinting in a fog, peering through a mist. But it won’t be long before the weather clears and the sun shines bright! We’ll see it all then, see it all as clearly as God sees us, knowing him directly just as he knows us!

13 But for right now, until that completeness, we have three things to do to lead us toward that consummation: Trust steadily in God, hope unswervingly, love extravagantly. And the best of the three is love.

*Came across this quote tonight, which was on the inside of this bottle cap.  So much truth in these ten simple words.
