You must be in fellowship prior to your Bible study, so that the spiritual information you receive can become a source, of blessing to your soul and produce spiritual growth.


Heb. 13:3



3 Remember [mimnesko] them that are in bonds [desmios], as [hos] bound with them [sundeo]; and them which suffer adversity [kakoucheo], as [hos] being [on] yourselves [autos] also [kai] in [en] the body [soma]. KJV-Interlinear

 

 

3 Remember the prisoners, as though in prison with them, and those who are ill-treated, since you yourselves also are in the body. NASB



The golden rule applies, or should apply throughout your life. You should not discriminate between people when dealing with them. You should treat everyone equally with kindness, courtesy, and empathy where appropriate.


Matt. 7:12

12 Therefore, however you want people to treat you, so treat them NASB


Don t look to the rich and be more courteous to them than you would a poor person. This is an important principle especially to business owners. Even if someone cannot afford the things you offer, that is no reason to treat them with discourtesy.


If you are in a better position than another person, you have an obligation to help them to the extent that you are able. If you are in a lesser position than another person, then you have an obligation not to entreat them. Never imply that you are in need and that they could certainly help you out. Deceitful begging is inappropriate behavior for anyone.


Lots of folks try to get ahead by means of the coattails of those who are successful. But if God wants to promote you, you will be promoted in life. No one can prevent that from happening. If God does not want to promote you, then nothing you can do will get you what you want.


Your first obligation in life is to look to God by means of your spiritual life. He is the source of all things. He provides you with everything you will ever have in life. So do not look to the world, do not look to other people. Honor God with your spiritual growth and God will bring all of the circumstances together in your life that will get you where God wants you to be.


And God knows better what is best for your life, than even you know.


Treat everyone well. Place yourself in the position of others and consider what it is you would want. Then act accordingly.


Courtesy does not mean that you have to adopt the homeless and move them into your home, but you can make their lives better through charity certainly.


Likewise, when you interact with people at work, or socially, or in whatever manner, be consistent in how you behave. No begging. No brown nosing. No noses protruding skyward.


The Christian should be courteous and unassuming. The Christian life is no place for boasting, no place for pretensions, no place for ostentatious behavior, no place for ridicule, no place for condescension.


No Christian is better than anyone else.


The Christian advancing in their spiritual life, should be more than aware of his own depraved state in his sin nature infested physical body, and consequently should consider the difficulties of others without hostility, or judgment, or criticism. When others are in trouble, we can be there for them, we can give aid where appropriate, we can pray for Gods help where we are incapable of helping.


We are all prisoners in one sense or another. Either prisoners to our physical existence in this world, prisoners to our own thoughts or attitudes, or even prisoners in a criminal or civil sense. No person is perfect and there is certainly no such thing as a superior human being.


This world will float all manner of temptations past our eyes and ears, and while those temptations are not sin to us in themselves, we should not invite them into our hearts in order to entertain them within our soul, thus making them sin in our lives.


Therefore be alert with respect to how you treat others. You have no right to elevate yourself in the presence of others, nor should you grovel before others.

Now is the time to post a prayer.





End Of Lesson

Study to show thyself approved (mature) unto God, a workman that needs not to be ashamed, rightly dividing (studying/discerning), the Word of truth.
