Turn to God
Love the Lord your God more than any other god from either the earth or the water or from the heavens. His name shall be respected as well his holy day of rest. Honor those who He has appointed to give you discipline. And love your neighbor and acknowledge all that is theirs and respect their property both in your heart and in your treatment of them as made in God's image and their property.
"So in everything, do unto others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets." Matthew 7:12 (NIV)
"Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable-if anything is excellent of praiseworthy-think about such things." Philippians 4:8 (NIV)
"The Lord detests lying lips, but he delights in men who are truthful." Proverbs 12:22
"Jesus replied: Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment.'" Matthew 22:37-38
"If you do what is right, will you not be accepted? But if you do not do what is right, sin is crouching at your door; it desires to have you, but you must master it." Genesis 4:7 (NIV)
"I can use scripture for every part of my life. God speaks directly to me through his word. All my life situations are addressed in scripture. Scripture is capable of transforming my mind to be like that of Christ's." -Maria Kuehmichel
"The Bible has the answer for every problem and situation I may be facing. Whether it is my attitude or my incompetence, God shows me how to live each and every day and I can always trust his word to be true. These words are from his lips and he has them there for a special purpose: to work in my life." -Sharlena Kuehmichel
"Instead of discipline being a cruel task master and something to be avoided you have to change your ideas and realize that discipline is a key to solving difficult issues. Instead of looking at discipline as deprivation you begin to see that it helps keep you fully alive. Pain ends up being a reminder to us that we need to center ourselves in God. This pain ultimately teaches us to work through our problems and ultimately to look for something better to come." -Maria Kuehmichel
"Through discipline we can see things that we normally would never see. Discipline reveals a new way of life and Discipline is what helps you complete that life to the fullest. Discipline is the one who comes knocking at the door every night to tell you that you missed something. She is the one who is there during the day to keep you going. And when you lay down, wishing to die, Discipline is the one that is there telling you that you have more to do before you can rest. It is your duty and obligation to live your life in an honorable way. There is work you must do and Discipline is the one friend who will help you do it. Those who live life in an unruly and disorderly way will have difficulties and struggles all their lives, for Discipline is the only one who can solve those problems. Life without Discipline isn't really life, for Discipline is what makes us who we are today. Our defining characteristic, that everyone holds uniquely, is how much they let Discipline govern their lives." -Sharlena Kuehmichel
