“Watch out! Don’t do your good deeds publicly, to be admired by others, for you will lose the reward from your Father in heaven. When you give to someone in need, don’t do as the hypocrites do—blowing trumpets in the synagogues and streets to call attention to their acts of charity! I tell you the truth, they have received all the reward they will ever get. But when you give to someone in need, don’t let your left hand know what your right hand is doing. Give your gifts in private, and your Father, who sees everything, will reward you. When you pray, don’t be like the hypocrites who love to pray publicly on street corners and in the synagogues where everyone can see them. I tell you the truth, that is all the reward they will ever get.” —Matthew 6:1-5 (via dinosrawr)
“Don’t store up treasures here on earth, where moths eat them and rust destroys them, and where thieves break in and steal. Store your treasures in heaven, where moths and rust cannot destroy, and thieves do not break in and steal. Wherever your treasure is, there the desires of your heart will also be.” —Matthew 6:19-21 (via dinosrawr)
Fearing people is a dangerous trap,
but trusting the Lord means safety.” —Proverbs 29:25 (via dinosrawr)
When you truly love someone, their mistakes never changes your feelings. Mainly because it's the mind that gets angry, but the heart still loves them.
“Not a single person on earth is always good and never sins.” —Ecclesiastes 7:20 (via dinosrawr)
Keep this in mind, one day, there's going to be a guy who's going to love you, your body, your smile, the way you walk, the way you talk, he's going to love you. And you're going to feel confident and on top of the world. One day, you won't feel insecure because you have someone who loves you for who you are. And I think that's when you know it's love. When instead of feeling like you have to hide your flaws, and feel insecure and embarrassed, you feel unashamed, free, secure, safe, proud, happy, confident. You feel loved.
“No, despite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us.” —Romans 8:37 (via dinosrawr)
