Zephaniah 3:17 reminds us that God is musical and He rejoices and sings over you. - -
The LORD your God in the midst of you is mighty; he will save, he will rejoice over you with joy; he will quiet you with his love, he will rejoice over you with singing.

Why Did He Quit His Good Job?
I had misjudged the man.I had only heard part of the story.
Of course he and his boss had
words, and my friend ended up quitting his good job.
My thoughts were that my
friend had a quick bad temper, and I figured he was foolish to give up a good
job.This was only one side of the
What I did not know was that
our friend had vouched for his cousin and got him hired where he worked.
All went well until his cousin decided to
help himself to some money that he thought no one would notice.
Our friend was called on the
carpet and blamed for recommending a thief to work in their establishment.
Harsh words were exchanged, and our friend
decided that it would be too embarrassing for him to stay on this job after
what his cousin had done.So he quit.
As time went by our friend
got a better job that ended up in a lucrative career for him and his wife.His cousin last we heard was still running
from the law.
Isn’t it amazing when we only
hear one side of a story we make our conclusions.
That did teach me a lesson in
judging, but sorry to say I have no doubt repeated being critical many times
without knowing the whole story.
When it comes to serving God,
and we try to outsmart Him with our excuses, - - He can see right through us
and our pompous attitude and sad story he doesn’t even want to hear.
With God, there is only one
side of the situation and his word is always, “humble your self, repent and
walk in love toward others.
About now we may need to give
someone the benefit of the doubt.
