How You've Lived Your Life Today...

Our behavior is pretty much ruled by our pride. Our emotions and our actions are of self-will. We want our lives to be in perfect order as WE would like them. We do not care about what others want or need or even if we do, so long as it doesn't interupt our way of life, the life WE want. If we want something bad enough, we'll do whatever it takes to get it. Some break the law of man, while others break the Law of God. God wants us to lean on Him and His blessed Son Jesus and the Holy Spirit. He doesn't want us to be wimps and lean on man for security. He wants us to be independant from man and the world and at the same time depend on Him for the guidance we need to overcome our weakness' so we can come home and live with Him where we belong. God's love is true and pure and uncreated, unlike man's love which is created. We desperately need to overcome ourselves if we plan on living with God in His kingdom. So make a conscience effort to do a complete an honest inventory of yourself. And don't forget to ask Jesus for His help. May God guide us daily.

WOW I so diagree with what you put here.. Our behavior is pretty much ruled by our pride. I have to say that I dont think for one second that our behaviour is ruled by our pride at all...My behaviour isnt at least..and come to think of it I cn't think of anyone in my life anyway that IS that way..Our behaviour IMO is about reactions to actions etc..On occasion our pride may step to the front but for the most part I dont think its really all that involved Our emotions and our actions are of self-will. Somewhat...but mostly its natural human reaction...and I dont think that our emotions can be willed away..I think how we react to any given situation or action is how we will react end of story.. We want our lives to be in perfect order as WE would like them. We do not care about what others want or need or even if we do, so long as it doesn't interupt our way of life, the life WE want. Again I fully disagree...My life will NEVER be perfect and I've NEVER been fool enough to wish it to be or think it will be. As far as NOT caring about others...that is SO FAR FROM the truth for me its not even funny. I ALWAYS care about others and what they need EVEN WHEN it puts me and my needs on the back burner... If we want something bad enough, we'll do whatever it takes to get it. Some break the law of man, while others break the Law of God I partially disagree with this...yes if I want something bad enough I go after it BUT I dont break laws of any kind to get it....I work for what i want and I'm ALWAYS mindful of others etc etc

I was gonna say the same thing, pretty much. Too many generalizations ^_^' perfection is unattainable in this life, not everyone's actions are determined by pride (we are all individuals!), etc. etc. Alot of us are more responsible than we're given credit for, I reckon.

This is what god has sent the man on the earth to do. God has sent man on the earth to do good for others and do not depend on the other man and in the need remember god for help. All the sincere people get the grace of god and do what ever the god desire and expect of him.
