Take Time to Consider
We would do well to consider the Lord’s tender dealings with us.
It could be by way of affliction, or someone treating us with disgust.
Life is so busy, that we don’t take the necessary time to consider providence of the day.
And we pass up opportunity to learn, and keep short accounts before they get too large to pay.
How much more fruitful could our lives be if we just considered the words that we spoke.
Those that confess, and forsake their sin shall prosper, and not wear a hypocrite’s cloak.
Consider for example why for one like me would Christ die?
These type of meditations will have you treating your fellow man kind.
Consider your own known faults, then consider why Christ would set his love on one with these traits.
Consider also your own uncleanness, and why for such a one Christ would open wide Heaven’s Gates.
Consider why one as unstable as I am that Christ would offer me his great love.
Then consider why for one like this the Lord would offer provisions from his storehouse above.
Consider Christ’s own treatment for you, then consider how you repaid this kindness to others.
And not just how you treat those in this world, but also how we treat those we call sisters, and brothers.
Consider the pleasant lot you’ve been afforded, as compared to the tumultuous life that was afforded Christ.
And consider how he was beaten, then spit on, openly mocked with not one sin, as compared to your own pleasant life.
Lord I need help considering, then letting the fruit of this meditation show up in kindness to my fellow man.
If I will put forth this effort, then the Lord will help me to be a blessing wherever I can.
Lord I know this to be your will for it will help show others the wonderful life that Christ alone can give.
And it will make my journey a more pleasant way by letting his wonderful example teach me how to live.
If only we take time to consider, many blessings await.
Considering will place me at Christ feet, magnifying his wonderful traits.
