       Wisely Attitude 

2:269 “He bestows wisdom upon whomever He chooses,
and whoever attains wisdom, has attained a great bounty.
Only those who possess intelligence will take heed.”


Many people are reluctant to show mercy because they don't understand the difference between trust and forgiveness.
Forgiveness is letting go of the past.
Trust has to do with future behaviour. Trust must be rebuilt over time.
Trust requires a track record.

If someone hurts you repeatedly, you are commanded by God to forgive them instantly, but you are not expected to trust them immediately, and you are not expected to continue allowing them to hurt you. They must prove they have changed over time.

Whenever you are hurt by someone, you have a choice to make.
Will I use my anger and emotions for retaliation or for resolution?
You can't do both.

For everything, absolutely everything, above and below, visible and invisible, everything was started in God and finds its purpose in Him.

You are made by God and for God, and until you understand that, life will never make sense.

Long before you were conceived by your parents, you were conceived in the mind of God.

Focusing on ourselves will never reveal our life’s purpose.
Nothing matters more than knowing God’s words for your life, and nothing can compensate for not knowing them.

None of us are immune to temptation. Given the right situation, we are capable of any sin.

Only the love of God is real love and all other love is metaphorical love.

But metaphorical love is real on its own level and is in fact a Divine gift, if it is understood properly and used as a ladder to reach love for the source of all love, which is God.

Living for God's glory is the greatest achievement we can accomplish with our lives.

Earth is not our final home we were created for something much better.
I am here on earth for just a little while.

The more God gives you the more responsible He expects you to be.

Character is both developed and revealed by tests, and all of life is a test.

The way you see your life shapes your life.

When you live in the light of God, your values change.

This life is preparation for the next.

If you want your life to have impact, focus it!

Anything you do that brings pleasure to God is an act of worship.

Trusting God completely means having faith that He knows what is best for your life.

The heart of worship is surrender.

Offering yourself to God is what worship is all about.

Surrender is best demonstrated in obedience and trust.

Surrender is not the best way to live, it is the while.

The more God gives you the more responsible He expects you to be.

Character is both developed and revealed by tests, and all of life is a test.

The way you see your life shapes your life.

When you live in the light of God, your values change.

This life is preparation for the next.

If you want your life to have impact, focus it!

Anything you do that brings pleasure to God is an act of worship.

Trusting God completely means having faith that He knows what is best for your life.

The heart of worship is surrender.

Offering yourself to God is what worship is all about.

Surrender is best demonstrated in obedience and trust.

Surrender is not the best way to live, it is the only way to live. Nothing else works.

God doesn't expect you to be perfect, but He does insist on complete honesty.

Draw close to God, and God will draw close to you.

Bitterness is the greatest barrier to friendship with God.

I'm as close to God as I choose to be.

God-pleasing worship is deeply emotional and deeply doctrinal. We use both our hearts and heads.
The best style of worship is the in that which most authentically represents your love for God.

Real worship is rooted in the word of God.

The most common mistake we make in worship today is seeking an experience rather than seeking God.

When you feel abandoned by God yet continue to trust Him, you worship Him in the deepest way.

Your spiritual family (Hezb Allah) is even more important than your physical family because it will last forever.

Being included in God's family is the highest honour and the greatest privilege you will ever receive.
The greatest gift you can give someone is your time.

When conflict is handled correctly, we grow closer to each other.

In resolving conflict, how you say it is important as what you say.

Reconciliation focuses on the relationship, while resolution focuses on the problem.

Relationships are always worth restoring.

Humility is not thinking less of yourself; it is thinking of yourself less.

God’s ultimate goal for your life on earth is not comfort, but character development.

Your character is essentially the sum of your habits.

We become whatever we are committed to.

The way you think determines the way you feel, and the way you feel influences the way you act.

Everything that happens to you has spiritual significance.

Temptation is a sign that Satan hates you, not a sign of weakness or worldliness.

There is no growth without change, no change without fear or loss, and no loss without pain.

If God used perfect people, nothing would ever get done.

When God is at the centre of your life you worship, when He is not, you worry.
