UNCHECKED WORDS that come too fast often bring with them TROUBLE.
There are some things you can only see on tiptoe. On tiptoe you can touch things, you cannot fully grasp. I have met some people in life who it seems are always on their tiptoes. They seem to see things others cannot see and hear things others cannot hear. Have you ever noticed how ripe Jesus thoughts were? He brought things that were on the top shelf down to where they were there for us to reach. I was on tiptoe this morning as I read once again from the margin of my Bible old notes on 3 things we need in life.
They know who they are the PLURALS and we could not get it done without them. They were cook(s) plural, server(s) plural, eater(s)plural, worker(s) plural, operator(s) plural, musician(s) plural, Preacher(s) plural, intercessor(s), giver(s) plural, helper(s) plural, watcher(s), parker(s) plural, cleaner(s) plural, singer(s) plural, grass cutter(s)and weed eater(s) plural.

I then realized the blessings would last for those who had received an abundant provision of grace. I was able to memo many things which I felt were pertinent to this question. I simply asked what is grace?
This phraseology ‘Dearly Beloved’ was in my spirit this morning when I woke up. Paul uses this expression several times in his epistles and Peter only uses it one time. In Romans he speaks and says, dearly beloved, discover the beauty in everyone, get along with everybody, don’t be obsessed with getting even, but leave that to God’s righteous judgment.
There is an interesting verse in Ecclesiastes 6 and verse 7. The Message translation readslike this, “We work to feed our appetites; Meanwhile our souls go hungry”. I realize that not only do men do all they can to satisfy their appetites, so does Hell. Solomon had this to say about this, “Hell has a voracious appetite, and lust just never quits”. You will find this in Proverbs 27:20 Adam and Eve bumped into this problem in the very beginning, Flesh lusted for what the Eye saw and Pride just could not say no, to the voracious appetite that was in man as far back as Eden.
The following was shared by our friend Ernest Anderson in one of his blogs and I thought you would appreciate it as I have. It is about:
