Winnie the Pooh famously said, “If the person you are talking to doesn’t appear to be listening, be patient. It may simply be that he has a small piece of fluff in his ear.” I’ve learned over the years that Winnie might be on to something. When someone won’t listen to you even though following your counsel would be to their advantage, it may be that their reticence is nothing more than a small piece of fluff in their ear. Or there may be another hindrance: Some folks find it hard to listen well because they’re broken and discouraged. Moses said he spoke to the people of Israel but they didn’t listen because their spirits were broken and their lives were hard (Exodus 6:9). The word discouragement in the Hebrew text is literally “short of breath,” the result of their bitter enslavement in Egypt. That being the case, Israel’s reluctance to listen to Moses’s instruction called for understanding and compassion, not censure. What should we do when others won’t listen? Winnie the Pooh’s words enshrine wisdom: “Be patient.” God says, “Love is patient, love is kind” (1 Corinthians 13:4); it’s willing to wait. He’s not finished with that individual. He’s working through their sorrow, our love, and our prayers. Perhaps, in His time, He’ll open their ears to hear. Just be patient. From odb.org
Khuda Ke Hone Ka Ehsaas Kar Har Jagah , Wo Teri Nafz Se Qareeb Se Maujood Hai. Wo Tere Dil Mein , Teri Jaan Mein Maujood Hai , Wo Aisi Qudrat Hai Saare Jag Har Jagah Maujood Hai. Wo Khuda Hai Jo Sabki Suntaa Hai , Wo Rahem Bhi Kare , Kare Hai Karam Bhi . Khuda Ki Shaan Mein Mere Lafz Kam Padhjaate Hai Wo Aisa Noor Hai Jo Har Kisi Ka Qayaal Rakhta Hai. Mazhab Mein Batt Gaye Insaan Par Khuda Na Batt Saka , Wo Ek Hi Hai Sab Uske Bande Hi Hain. ✒-Muzammil.Quadri 📸 : Pranav. @_.cloudwalker @the_mysteriouswritter @izhar_e_lafz @the_lost_streets @dil_e_razdan @_notadopewriter_ @girlish_diary_of_happiness @write2shf @sandhyaxix @alfaz_or_jazbaat @ek_alfaz @kagazkikalam_official @kagaz_or_kalam @raraavissoul @m_mokarrama #instawrites#urduwriter#poetsurdu#wordporn#wordpresspoem#urdupoems#khuda#shayri#allah#bhagwan#jesuschrist#poetrycommunity#writersofig#poetsofindia#poetsofhyderabad#quoteoftheday
Forgive others and you will be forgiven by our Father. Simple as that. But if you look further into the scripture you'll notice a distinct reality, “If you forgive those who sin against you, your heavenly Father will forgive you. But if you refuse to forgive others, your Father will not forgive your sins. What a sobering statement from Jesus, forgive those who sin against you and He'll forgive you but if you refuse to forgive someone who wronged you, He won't forgive you. We often lose complete sight of that scripture and teaching from Christ. But it's clear as day, forgiving others is not a passive suggestion, no, it is a straight up command.

This is most evident in people who either hate God or publicly deny His existence, but always end up using His name to cuss and show verbal disgust... Also another way they show is by creating or enjoying music and entertainment that promotes everything from hatred and sin towards God. The world and all those who belong to it are in enmity with God. The Bible says that if we hold onto our sin that we will perish.. and that we are enemies of God and His wrath abides on us. There's no place to hide from God. The devil knows his days are numbered and trembles in fear... So what makes you think that you have nothing to worry about? The only reason why we're still alive and able to do what we do is cause God is patient and does not want anyone to perish. He is merciful to those who turn to Him in true repentance from their sin and faith in Him. But to those who take His mercy, patience and kindness for granted, there's only judgement left for them, in a place called hell, for all eternity. Don't be too wise my dear friend and think you have another day left or that you might get another chance. This very second could be your last breath. Throw yourself on the mercy of God when you can and turn away from your sins and believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, that He alone is able to save you from your sin! That He alone is Righteous and Holy! That He is the only true and living God! Jesus didn't die on a Cross for no reason! He died to save sinners like you and me! To take the punishment that you and I deserve! So come to Him as you are, in true repentance from your sin and true faith in Him and be set free to live for Him! He alone can give you eternal life, unspeakable joy and peace that passes all understanding... Nothing in this world can ever come close. ✝️💗 . . #jesuschrist#jesusislord #jesusisthewaythetruthandthelife #thegospelisthepoweruntosalvation #jesusisgod#heisabletosave #forallhavesinnedandfallenshortofthegloryofgod #wretchedsinnersweare
