Day 8: The Power Of If


Oh

THE POWER OF IF:

"IF children live with criticism,

They LEARN to condemn.

IF children live with hostility,

They LEARN to fight.

IF children live with ridicule,

They LEARN to be shy.

IF children live with shame,

they LEARN to feel guilty..."*

Oh

THE POWER OF IF:

"IF children live with tolerance,

They LEARN to be patient.

IF children live with encouragement,

They LEARN confidence.

IF children live with praise,

They LEARN to appreciate.

IF children live with fairness,

They LEARN justice.

IF children live with security,

They LEARN to have faith.

IF children live with approval,

They LEARN to like themselves.

IF children live with acceptance and friendship,

They learn to find love in the world." *

*(Dorothy Law Nolte).

Oh

THE POWER OF IF:

"But to as many as did receive and welcome HIM, HE gave the right [the authority, the privilege] to become CHILDREN OF GOD, that is, to those who believe in (adhere to, trust in, and rely on) HIS name"

THE POWER OF IF:

"IF WE ARE HIS CHILDREN,

then we are heirs—

heirs of GOD and co-heirs with CHRIST..."

(Romans 8:17).

THE POWER OF IF:

IF we are HIS CHILDREN, then we LEARN from our FATHER~

"Become imitators of GOD [copy HIM and follow HIS example],

as well-beloved children [imitate their father]"

(Ephesians 5:1) .

Oh THE POWER OF IF

that draws your closer to your

FATHER

as you

FOLLOW HIS SON

by

PUTTING INTO PRACTICE

all that you

LEARN~

"The things which you have LEARNED and received and heard and seen in me, practice these things [in daily life], and the GOD

[who is the source] of peace and well-being will be with you"

(Philippians 4:9).

Oh THE POWER OF IF

that enables you to

BLOOM

HIS PEACE

because you are

"A CHILD OF LOVE"
