“Not one [sparrow] is overlooked by God. . . . You are worth more than many sparrows.”​—Luke 12:6, 7, footnote.

CONSIDER: Seemingly insignificant birds are not inconsequential to God. Not even one tiny sparrow escapes God’s notice; every one is a precious living creature. Humans are far more valuable to God than sparrows are. Humans, as the centerpiece of God’s earthly creation, are made in his “image” and are capable of cultivating and displaying his elevated qualities.​—Genesis 1:26, 27.

“O Jehovah, you have searched through me, and you know me. . . . You discern my thoughts . . . Examine me, and know my anxious thoughts.”​—Psalm 139:1, 2, 23.

CONSIDER: God knows you personally. He knows your most intimate feelings and concerns. While others may not understand your distressing situation, God cares about you and wants to help you. That makes life worth living.

Your Life Has Meaning
“O Jehovah, hear my prayer; let my cry for help reach you. . . . Incline your ear to me; do answer me quickly when I call. . . . He will pay attention to the prayer of the destitute.”​—Psalm 102:1, 2, 17.

CONSIDER: It is as if from the very start of human suffering, Jehovah had been keeping a record of every tear humans have shed. (Psalm 56:8) This includes your tears. God remembers all your trials and tears because you are precious to him.

“Do not be anxious, for I am your God. I will fortify you, yes, I will help you . . . I, Jehovah your God, am . . . the One saying to you, ‘Do not be afraid. I will help you.’”​—Isaiah 41:10, 13.

CONSIDER: God is ready to help you. If you fall down, he will lift you up.

p.s. a “real” future sparrow..

“God loved the world so much that he gave his only-begotten Son, so that everyone exercising faith in him might not be destroyed but have everlasting life.”​—John 3:16.

CONSIDER: You are so dear to God that he willingly gave his Son, Jesus, as a sacrifice in your behalf. This sacrifice gives you the prospect of living a happy and purposeful life forever.

Hospitable Earth

attitude earth Joan Winifred justice

Do not forget hospitality, for through it some unknowingly entertained angels.​—Heb. 13:2.

Windy…outdoor break with my daughter(s)…took this pic.

this afternoon.

Thinking about humans’ very-less-than-perfect ways of expressing so-called justice…and am reminded of the perfect example: Yahweh

Perfect is his activity, for all his ways are justice.”​—Deuteronomy 32:4.

People punish and exclude those they think are their so-called “enemies”…it’s so stupid and SAD:(

These encouraging thoughts are Happy thoughts about the Bible’s “Happy God”…

God is generous toward all, including those apparently undeserving. For example, “he makes his sun rise upon wicked people and good and makes it rain upon righteous people and unrighteous.” (Matthew 5:45) He treats people of all races and cultures justly, as Acts 10:34, 35 shows: “God is not partial, but in every nation the man that fears him and works righteousness is acceptable to him.” [excerpted: w 10/11 “God is Unfair–Is It True?“]

the Earth is not partial; Thankful. 🙂

off to mind gym: PEACE FRIEND(S) of PEACE:)

p.s.

What, then, is the source of injustice? Many people choose to act unfairly, not following God’s example of justice. (Deuteronomy 32:5) Also, the Bible shows that God is allowing his enemy, the Devil, to exercise authority over the world. (1 John 5:19) However, God’s permission of this unjust rule will soon end. He has already set in place his means to “break up the works of the Devil.”​—1 John 3:8.

How knowing the truth helps you: You might be perplexed by the seemingly endless reports of corruption, oppression, and injustice. Knowing the cause of the trouble helps you understand why conditions are so bad and why man’s best efforts to make the world a better place consistently fail. (Psalm 146:3) Rather than devoting time and energy to making changes that would be temporary at best, you can have a sound hope for the future based on trust in God’s promises.​—Revelation 21:3, 4. [excerpted: w 10/11 “God is Unfair–Is It True?“]

p.p.s.

HE = aka h(ospitable) e(arth)

“He” see above-mentioned Matthew 5:45 aka God of Justice/Jehovah/Yahweh.

Criminal??
Non-criminal??
How do I treat so-called “criminals” ?
How do I treat so-called “non-criminals” ?

Biblical Counsel:

Rejoice with those who rejoice; weep with those who weep. 16 Have the same attitude toward others as toward yourselves; do not set your mind on lofty things,*(or “cultivate lofty ideas”) but be led along with the lowly things. Do not become wise in your own eyes.
17 Return evil for evil to no one.Take into consideration what is fine from the viewpoint of*(or “in the sight of”) all men. 18 If possible, as far as it depends on you, be peaceable with all men. (Romans 12:15-18)

“Korea Decides Early Release…”

Freedom hope Joan Winifred justice prisoners

“holding the sacred secret of the faith with a clean conscience.”

1 Timothy 3:9

Happy 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 to Hear

“Korea Decides on Early release of Conscientious Objectors in Prison”

The Ministry of Justice has stated that on Friday, November 30, 2018, all conscientious objectors who have served at least one third of their 18-month prison sentences will be released on parole.

[…] early release of our brothers follows the landmark Supreme Court decision on November 1, 2018, which recognized that conscientious objection is “justifiable grounds” for refraining from military enlistment. (Excerpted Breaking JW News)

Happy, Happy Friday & Week-End..& Beyond to Parole Pursuers of Peace (and their Families) aka the soon-to-be/newly released Prisoners of Conscience in South Korea!!!!

THANK YOU for Your Courageous Example…(and including all Prisoners of Conscience Globally).
