Three Things

The Watered Soul: Three Things

Sep 26, 2011

Three Things

I received the following message from a friend today. Thus I’m sharing it with each of you (my bloggy friends).

3 things in life that never come back when gone

1. TIME
2. WORDS
3. OPPORTUNITY

3 things in life that should never be lost:

1. PEACE
2.HOPE
3.HONESTY

3 things in life that are most valuable:

1. PRAYER
2 LOVE
3. FAITH

3 things in life that make a person:

1. HARD WORK
2. SINCERITY
3.COMMITMENT

3 things in life that can destroy a person:

1. LUST
2. PRIDE
3. ANGER

3 things in life that are constant:

1. GOD
2. CHANGE
3. DEATH

Reading this email reminded me of 1 Corinthians 13:13. May our lives be built upon that which is eternal.

Three things will last forever—faith, hope, and love—and the greatest of these is love. I Corinthians 13:13 NLT

But for right now, until that completeness, we have three things to do to lead us toward that consummation: Trust steadily in God, hope unswervingly, love extravagantly. And the best of the three is love. I Corinthians 13:13(The Message)

three remain

These lists are fabulous. I especially like how you narrowed down destroying factors to three: Lust, Pride, Anger.

Simplistic and POWERFUL! Amen! Thanks for sharing with us! I would add to the things that can destroy...FEAR when not managed by the Holy Spirit. I lived it so I know first hand.

Hey, I shared your "writing style" post on my blog this morning. A little late :) but wanted to share it!

Blessings and love sis!

Beautifully simple, and simply beautiful.

Yes, and isn't it interesting that the three things that are most valuable come from the heart of God...

He alone is the unchanging Three-In-One. The same yesterday, today, and forever.

GOD BLESS!
