axiomatic?

if you are a follower of Jesus, I suggest the following each day:

Before you engage with humans, engage with God through His word.

Back to post #2 — as an example, today’s “Daily Light”[1]  said this:

Morning

“I do not ask that you take them out of the world, but that you keep them from the evil one.”

Blameless and innocent, children of God without blemish in the midst of a crooked and twisted generation, among whom you shine as lights in the world.—“You are the salt of the earth, . . . the light of the world. . . . Let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.”

“It was I who kept you from sinning against me.”

But the Lord is faithful. He will establish you and guard you against the evil one.—I did not do so, because of the fear of God.—Who gave himself for our sins to deliver us from the present evil age, according to the will of our God and Father.—Now to him who is able to keep you from stumbling and to present you blameless before the presence of his glory with great joy, to the only God, our Savior, through Jesus Christ our Lord, be glory, majesty, dominion, and authority, before all time and now and forever. Amen.
