Tuesday – May 3rd – Hebrews 13:3-4      -----     
13:3)   Remember the prisoners as if chained with them--those who are mistreated--since you yourselves are in the body also.
4) Marriage is honorable among all, and the bed undefiled; but fornicators and adulterers God will judge.
The Daily Walk Bible inspirational thought for today:
    Good Tuesday to you! I would be derelict in my duties as the writer of this blog if I didn’t take the time today to ponder the importance of our inspirational thought. Some inspirational thoughts are okay – worth ready but not comment worthy, other thoughts are timely and valuable to our faith walk and worth remembering, and then there are inspirational thoughts, like todays’, that require/demand are full attention. I am sure that every one of us is, at times, guilty of worrying about what someone else will think about our words, our actions, our stances, or even our being a Christian. As I read this today, I was quickly reminded of Paul’s instructions to the believers in Philippi to not think too highly of themselves. My sin is that when I think that others actually spend time thinking about what they think of me I am overvaluing who I am in the eyes of the world. I have the assurance that the only one that matters already loves me unconditionally. It then becomes my desire to live according to His word, His will, and His way for my life. It is hard, if not impossible, to impress the world when we are following in Jesus’ footsteps.
    Today is part two in our lesson from Hebrews chapter thirteen on how to love each other. The author reminds us that our responsibilities are both out in the world and in our homes. Because our souls are housed in a physically body, we are to sympathize with those who suffer for whatever reason and in whatever situation in this life. Our responsibility to be an example of God’s love and respect within our homes is expressed through faithfulness and commitment to our spouse if married. To all people in our household, we are to apply the relational commandments of God to insure spiritual growth flourishes among each believer regardless of age. Both in home responsibilities and out in the world sympathy requires us to respond through actions and not just with an acknowledgement of what is right, proper, or expected.
