LIVING FOR LEZLIE

Let us not brag....

Have you ever been around someone that made it a point to brag about something they did to help someone? I have and you know what I think when people do this, they are doing things for themselves and not the one they are helping. Read the Bible. Matthew 6:1-4 specifically if you need reference.


I will help anyone. I do not care who knows and you know what, God knows and the ones I help, no one else needs to know. I am going to post it on FB. I am not going to tell others. I am going to do what I can and go on. Because I know that God knows and that is all the matters.


Lezlie would help anyone and she never bragged. People that brag all the time about everything are seeking attention. Its pretty sad when they do this. It does not matter what age because I promise you that 6 year old bragging because he helped someone, he learned it somewhere from an adult.


If you give to the poor, give and know in your heart and mind you did something good. The world doesn't need to know.


I deal with people daily. Many people. But you will never know who I help or what I do because its between them, me and God. As it should be.


This is way off topic but, I am so tired of the posts about I helped do this blah, blah, blah. Thats find. God isn't smiling. Read the Bible.


When I decide to write on something I specifically consult the Bible because I want to be sure I am correct. Matthew 6 has this written. (Watch out! Don't do your good deeds publicly, to be admired by others, for you will lose the reward from your Father in heaven.). Just in case anyone needs to see it.


I know y'all can't wait until November. The month of thanks. That one is just as bad. I mean there are 11 other months in the year, lets be thankful during those too.


Stop the bragging and boasting. It is a poor reflection of the type of person you are. It honestly looks like you are doing whatever to get praise when you should be more concerned with the deed and who it helps. God knows, he's all that matters.


I know some will probably look this up and yes, Matthew 5:16 says something about good deeds but it is not saying to boast about them, it is saying do them in spirit not to brag. Ten people don't need to know what you did or do for others. Just do good and if the person you help tells, they say yes I did but don't brag. God knows your heart. He knows all our hearts.


Isaiah 66:9 "I will not cause pain without allowing something new to be born, says the Lord."

The righteous perish, and no one takes it to heart;  the devout are taken away, and no one understands that the righteous are taken away to be spared from evil.  Those who walk uprightly enter into peace, they find rest as they lie in death.

Isaiah 57:1-2
