Your Enemies

Most won’t pray good things for their enemies.

But watch out, when you let their misfortune be your joy.

Proverbs 24:17-18 (KJV) – rejoice not when thine enemy falleth, and let not thine heart be glad when he stumbleth: Lest the Lord see it, and it displease him, and he turn away his wrath from him.

Escape Temptation

There is not one temptation that man has not been tempted of.

And there is not one temptation that there is not an escape.

I Corinthians 10:13 (KJV) – there hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.

That’s All You Get

When you do things for others, looking for a reward or praise, whatever they say or do for you, that’s all the reward you’ll get.

Matthew 6: 1-2 (KJV) – take heed that ye do not your alms before men, to be seen of them: otherwise ye have no reward of your Father which is in heaven. Therefore when thou doest thou alms, do not sound a trumpet before thee, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may have glory of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.
