Motherless Mother Eve

A lot of people blame their mom’s for things. Whoever you are, you’ve likely done this. If you have not (out loud, at least) you have a friend or a sister or a cousin that talks a little or a lot about mom in this manner.

The original mother, Eve, the only motherless mother, couldn’t blame her reckless choice on her mom.

Of course, we, her descendants, blame Mother Eve for everything. And that’s okay. She did the wrong thing and the trajectory for all of us has been really horrible. If only….

But, she did. And here we go on. The choices we make effect our children. Ancient history tells us it’s true. Current days tell the same story.

My approach has been consistent with my own mom and with Mother Eve and I believe it’s allowed me more joy, less distress.

I’ve learned to take the teachable lessons from both women as gifts. The attributes of my mom, I try to flourish further and avoid the characteristic areas I viewed as lacking.

From Eve the lesson is big and I can’t live to give Glory to God if it’s overlooked and ignored. And, it’s so simple and clear. Eve was deceived. “Hath God really said……?” she knew God really said what He said.

Yet, Eve could forget it all in the midst of a false guide, a deceiver. This Mother’s Day let us remind ourselves that if God really said something, He really did say something and no one should have any power to convince you otherwise. Be equipped in the Word.

It’s not love

If you’re not speaking what is written, you are not saving a soul and it’s not love. Please pull back your hand to another if you’re preaching something you or another designed; something not from God. The only time that can be compassionate is when you declare it, “not of God.” Misguiding the vulnerable under the guise of Jesus is treachery.

Love is Awesome!

Loving another person is the closest any of us will ever get to understanding the world of original design. Being loved by another person is the closest any of us will ever get to understanding Jesus. Having a rock solid confidence in the love of another is the closest we will get, while on earth, to finally being with God in glory; His child. No wonder love is awesome!

The Rest is Mumps and Measles

On earth, there are holes in souls that cannot be fully filled until God and His original design is restored in all our intended glory with Him in Heaven and on the new Heaven on earth. However, fruit is the natural result of relationship now, with God and others. The command, then, to love one another, given to us by Jesus, provides us with the closest to the sublime, attainable at this present time. The rest is mumps and measles. It really is about love.
