  • Michael on 1 Kings 13 - 2 years ago
    Reading this chapter as best I could I took notes. Then I read Matthew Henry's (MH) commentary and my eyes were opened.

    I too, among other things, wondered about why the old prophet was not punished.

    MH answer to my heart as I understand it:

    1. Worry about yourself when you have disobeyed you Lord. You are likely, nor should you concern yourself as to why or how the good Lord punishes sinners.

    2. Focus in on your sin alone and dont use mitigating circumstances, as the current social/legal order may do in current society, as your crutch to try to wash away the seriousness of your offense.

    Praise HIM,

    You can type your scripture on Google to see many commentaries on the same verse. Interesting. I like the BibleHub website.

    Just type it like this:

    1 Corinthians 13:1, commentary

    Or, meaning, Or, History, Or Teaching

    Learning the whole picture of a scripture is so interesting! There are dozens of different commentators. You'll figure out which ones you like best.

    Tip: as a rule I don't read Wikipedia posts. It's a Google comment on Bible and I'd rather know which Bible is being used.

    When we get to the place where we live our faith in full view of everybody, that's a good place to be. Jesus is loving and kind. I ask people is there anything you would like to ask Jesus for?

    Ask the Holy Spirit to anoint you to be a better student and to help you to study. It will happen.

    Tell others of the things in Matthew 24 and Luke 21; and scriptures that make you happy. Book of Proverbs. Stay away from angry faces or bad language.

    I was a street minister 35 years and counting. Sometimes I just smile and say: is there anything you would like to ask Jesus about, today? They will smile and walk away, or they might ask for a short prayer.

    I'm 70 and I never get tired of touching a life for Jesus. Even if all I can give is a smile__that touches my eyes.
