Something to ponder...

Blessings - What if GOD only gave you what you "deserved?"

Punishment - What if GOD gave you what you "deserved?"

Make it a great day!
Love, peace and continued prayers

God doesn't give you what you deserve or what you want. lol
He gave Adam and Eve free will to create their own destiny and life.
We lose control over our lives when we do not follow his teachings.
The thing is you are not supposed to do things expecting rewards.
You do things because they are the right thing to do but today everything works in reverse.

I'm thankful every day that God gives me so much more than I deserve and that he doesn't punish me in the way I deserve. His perfect plan is....well, perfect! None of us would be able to spend eternity with God if we got what we deserved.

Good morning family ~ This was/is hopefully a way for people to look at how they are spending their lives.

Are you being kind?
Are you showing love?
Are you showing compassion?
Are you haboring resentment?
Are you providing acts of service?

Things of that nature.
We are all here on earth not to be blessed, but to be a blessing!

Make it an awesome day in the Lord!

The two questions posed are definitely something for myself and everyone to consider. Of course the second one caused me to sit here for a minute and ponder the answers.

Speaks to me in a Heaven or Hell sort of way. I have to believe in the end, when all knees have bowed, we all will get what we deserve, one way or another.

You are a blessing sis.

So glad I did not get what I deserved on some occasions (Mercy).
So glad I did get what I didn't deserve on some occasions (Grace).

Miss you.
