July 6 – Beatitudes


July 6 – Beatitudes

How to understand them

There are at least 3 ways to understand them: (1) they are a code of ethics for Jesus’s time and place, BUT also a standard of conduct for all His lovers; (2) they contrast His values for His lovers to those who do not love Him; (3) they contrast the superficial “love” of the world to the love God wants for us; (4) they show how we will need to be in our eternal home.  These beatitudes are not multiple choice – pick what you like and leave the rest.  They must be taken as a whole.  They describe what we should be like as one of His “Shared Lovers.”

November 21 –


November 21 – Friends, Friendship

Can be torn apart with jealousy

Jealousy is a dividing force, strong enough to tear apart the mightiest of friendships or the closest of friends.  It forces you to separate yourself from what you were longing for in the first place.  When you find yourself becoming jealous of others, try thanking your Lover God for their good fortune.  Before striking out in anger, consider what you could lose – a friend, job, a spouse, a family.

Who yours are says a lot about who you are

An old saying: “A rotten apple spoils the barrel,” is often applied to friendships, and with good reason.  Our friends and associates, affect us, and sometimes profoundly.  Be careful whom you choose as you closest friends.  Spend time with people you want to be like – because you and your friends will surely grow to resemble each other.

Become one to others

Loneliness is everywhere – many people feel cut off and alienated from others.  Being in a crowd just makes people more aware of their isolation.  We all need friends who will stick close, listen, care, and offer help when it is needed in good times and bad.  It is better to have one such friend then a dozens of superficial acquaintances.  Instead of wishing you could find a true friend, seek to become one.  There are people who need your friendship.  Ask your Lover God to reveal them to you, and then take on the challenge of being a true friend.

Novenber 20 – Foundation


November 20 – Foundation

Importance of a spiritual foundation

If you are letting a desire for recognition, praying for power. Or love of money rule’s your life, you may find yourself besieged by enemies – stress, anxiety, illness, fatigue, – Keep the Love of God at the center of your life, and you will have the power you need to fight these challenges.

Make sure Gd is yours

Those who devote their lives to achievements, couples, causes, or possessions have as their security that which is temporary and changeable.  The possessions that we work so hard to obtain will all pass away.  But “Sharing Love” with your Lover God will always exist.  He will never leave you; if you do not reject Him.

November 19 -Forgiveness


November 19 – Forgiveness

Understanding our Lover God’s forgiveness should make us more willing to forgive

God graciously accepts us even though we don’t deserve it.  Because our Lover God forgives us even when we have ignored or rejected him, we should graciously forgive others.

Forgiveness demonstrates the core of “Shared Love” living.  If we love God the way He loves us, we should be willing to forgive His other children.  If we have experienced God’s love, we should be willing to pass it on to others.  And remember that “Shared Love” is undeserved love.  By giving someone else undeserved love, we are not excusing their failures.  We’re recognizing them as our Lover’s child, forgiving them , and loving them in spite of their failures – just as our Lover God does for us.

Brings freedom and dignity

We are set free from any of our own guilt when we accept God’s control of our life and His Love.  We no longer need to be bogged down in shame over our failures, we can walk with dignity because the controller of this world loves us and others.  But we need to be aware of the constant temptation to fail that “Shared Love.”
