Doris Harris tells of a “dear old lady” who was asked about her excellent complexion and bright attitude. She replied, in effect, “I use my lips for Truth, for my voice, Kindness, for my eyes Compassion, for my hands Charity, for my figure Uprightness, for my heart Love and for any who don’t like me, Prayer.”

Ephesians 6 Expanded Greek

 

We don't do expanded greek here...we do the KJV. No matter how many times we tell folks it seems someone wants to come along and try the republic's rules. Why don't you just correct your post with the KJV and not attempt to make an issue about it?

KJV

Servants, be obedient to them that are your masters according to the flesh, with fear and trembling, in singleness of your heart, as unto Christ;

6 Not with eyeservice, as menpleasers; but as the servants of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart;

7 With good will doing service, as to the Lord, and not to men:

1 Peter 2:18, KJV: "Servants, be subject to your masters with all fear;

 

not only to the good and gentle,

 

but also to the froward."

"When I hear evolutionary scientists talk about the importance of discovering as much knowledge about the universe as possible, then go on to talk about how the universe will end in heat death, I cannot help but imagine them saying, 'Make haste!  We must fill the library with as many books as we possibly can before the whole building burns down!'" - B.J.

Christ as a light, illumine and guide me
Christ as a sheild, over shadow me
Christ underneath, Christ over me
Christ beside, on my left and my right
This day be within and without me
Lowly and meek yet all powerful
Be in my heart, I reach to Him in my speech
In the dark who speak unto me
This day be within and without me
Lowly and meek yet all powerful
Christ as light, Christ as a sheild
Christ beside me
On my left and my right.

Psalm 53 King James Version (KJV)

53 The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. Corrupt are they, and have done abominable iniquity: there is none that doeth good.

God looked down from heaven

           upon the children of men,

to see if there were any that did understand,

that did seek God."

Scripture quotes are always best! Maybe I'll start another thread 'A Scripture Today How It Moved You.' (moved as in influenced, provoked, motivated, encouraged).

"O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! how unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways past finding out!" [Romans 11:33]

"And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God." [Ephesians 3:19]

"But drops of grief can ne'er repay
The debt of love I owe
Here, Lord, I give myself away
'Tis all that I can do"
                               Lyrics ~ Isaac Watts, 1674-1748

There are many more devotional times of late when I'm so overwhelmed by God's personal revelation of a verse for me that it overflows and runs down my cheeks. Not a quote just truth.

"Now, the blessed fact is that God is not silent and has never been silent, but is speaking in his universe."                                      ~ A. W. Tozer

Brings to mind a couple scriptures from the Psalms.

"The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork." [Psalms 19:1]

"The heavens declare his righteousness, and all the people see his glory." [Psalms 97:6]

A different perspective:
“Ask any person who was chronically ill or disabled before the pandemic how life changed for them during the pandemic and we can’t say it changed as much as the average “healthy” person’s life did. We were already used to being at home. We were already painfully adjusted to missing events. Eventually, you stop missing certain things and accept the home life because you have to adapt to your new normal or you will go insane with grief from your life’s lost possibilities. My husband and I had hoped that healthy, mobile Americans would look beyond themselves and protect others while protecting themselves. There was also the vague hope that they would better understand the limited lives of their fellow ill or disabled Americans. Instead, we realized a new cold, hard truth: Most Americans wouldn’t know how to survive being hindered by illness or disability. They can’t adapt to inconvenience.
— Christine Skirbunt-Kozabo, Virginia”
