Take a moment to visit Alan Knox and read this -

I like how some Bible versions put it --- to PROVOKE each other into love and good works.

Provoke to me has always had a negative connotation to it but here it sounds like a good thing or at the very least can be used as a good thing.

pro·voked, pro·vok·ing, pro·vokes
1. To incite to anger or resentment.
2. To stir to action or feeling.
3. To give rise to; evoke: "provoke laughter".
4. To bring about deliberately; induce: "provoke a fight".

So not only should we meet together regularly, but we we should be stirring each other into action.  What action...? and good works.

Good lesson to take note of.  :o)

Andrew Cunningham - Mathew 7 - 104.7 the fish Opening Act Contest.

Georgia-based rebelutionary Andrew Cunningham needs to finish in the Top 5 (in total views) in the 104.7 The Fish Opening Act contest on YouTube.

The other is that Andrew’s song is really, really good — plus, it has a truly rebelutionary message based on a passage in Matthew 7.

Is stress a choice?  I think it is.  We cannot control what happens to us in our lives but we are always in control of how we react and process the things that happen to us.  For years I have been 'preaching' that life is about choices.  When us gals would get together and we would start venting about things in our life (health, relationships, jobs, etc), I would most often come back with exactly that sentiment -- you can choose!  My friends would rebut with - but it is hard.  I never ever said it was easy, choice isn't easy but it can be done.  I know, because I make the choices that are hard on a regular basis.  Am I going to allow that snide comment to ruin my day?  Am I going to attack back when someone is picking a fight with me?  Am I going to allow the hurt I feel from the actions of someone else ruin my day or my relationship with them?  The key is YOU are in control of your emotions... they are a choice.  How will you choose to manage them today?
