"You shall not give false testimony against your neighbor."
Some stood up and began to give false testimony against Him, saying, 58 "We heard Him say, 'I will destroy this temple made with hands, and in three days I will build another made without hands.'
Hello guys and gals.
We got a call from the doctor's office today on some of Asher's tests. He has some sort of infection so they started him on antibiotics, and they said he had elevated ketones in his urine. The doctor wants to run some more tests in two weeks. My wife and I did not know what elevated ketones meant so we looked it up. Asher could have type 1 diabetes. I want to ask all my spark friends and people that read this to please, please, please, pray for my son and for the next tests to come up negative for diabetes. I know it is God's will that needs to be done, and he is in God's hands. I just ask that you guys would intercede for Asher. Thank you in advance.
I had a good day other than that. Went to the gym and played a bunch of racquetball. My legs are stiff today due to the leg workout I did Monday. I am hoping they let up before I go try and play racquetball this morning. I am looking forward to it though even if I am sore, I will try and play some.
Commandment #9 "You shall not give false testimony against your neighbor." One of you touched on this in my last blog. Giving false testimony causes you to steal someone's reputation. That may be what God was pointing at. How many times have we heard something through the grapevine and pasted it on to a friend. Passing that gossip is a form of false testimony, when it sways someone else's view about another person. Some the high priests and council gave false testimony about Jesus. What did that lead too? Ultimately it lead to His brutal death, and resurrection. I think we need to be really careful about spreading gossip. I think that we should be silent unless we actually see happen. Then again why should we bring other people into other people's business. I don't know about you, but I have a hard time tending to my own business than someone else's.
Heavenly Father thank You for this day and each day before this one. Lord I ask that You would give us the strength to not gossip. Lord I ask that You would help us keep our business our and others business thier's. Lord thank You once again for Your guidence and strength. Lord I ask that You would find favor in my son Asher's situation, and cast all the possibility of diabetes away from him. In Jesus' name I pray, Amen.
