"Faye"s Daily Words Encouragement: # 117 Today's word Is: Despise"

Definition of the word Despise: To feel contempt for someone, or hate.

Psalms chapter 53 - 5 : Therefore were they in great fear, where no fear was: for God hath scattered the bones of him that encmpeth against thee: thou hast put them to shame, because God ghath despised them.

Proverbs chapter 1 - 7 : The fear of the Lord, is the begining of the knowledge ' but fools despise wisdom andminstruction.

Proverbs chapter 1 -30 : They would none of my counsel: they despise all my reproof.

 Ecclesiastes chapter 9 -16 : Then said I wisdom is better than strength: nevertheless the poor man's wisdom is despised, and his words are not heard.

 Luke chapter 10 - 16 : He that heareth me, and he that despiseth you, despiseth me, and he that despiseth me,  despiseth him that sent me.

1 Timothy 4 - 12 : Let no man despise thy youth; but be thou an example of the believer, in word, in conversation, in charity,in spirit, in purity.

Despise is a form of hatred, so if we're going around despising ; we're hating and that not godly.  We can despise what someone is doing or what someone is about, but we shouldn't despise the person but the actions of that person. We cannot get to God's Kingdom if our lives are built on despising and hatred. The bible talks about the fool that despises reproof and instruction, but if we're not able to take reproof  and instructions , we also fall into the foolish category.

We cannot grow or prosper without reproof and instruction, so those of us , that get attitudes, hurt feelings and despise the persons or person trying to tell us the truth, need  to hurry and get on their knees and pray about it... because you're letting Satan use you, and not God. We can despise the actions of others, but we shouldn't let despising make us sin by hating each other. We all have to remember that despising  and hating is not of God.

      Hello, Faye.

      My heart hurts, my kids are so far away in my life. Im getting old. How can I give them a reason to contact me ?

      Am I selfish for wanting my children to contact me, after 20 years.? I tried and tried again many of times trying to contact them.

      "I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength" Phil. 4 v 13.

      At times, we tend to forget this all so important reminder. Despise is such a strong feeling, and while despising a persons actions is different from actually despising that person, we can easily combined the two without realizing it. Thanks for another reminder.
