II Kings 7:9 says Then they said to one another, We are not doing right. This day is a day of good news, and we remain silent. If we wait until morning light, some punishment will come upon. Now therefore, come, let us go and tell the king's household.
Acts 5:42 And daily in the temple, and every house, they did not cease teaching and preaching Jesus as the Christ.
Comment: Christians are to believe and spread the good news. What is the good news ? That Jesus Christ came to save sinners or his people from their sins.
Isaiah 61:10 I delight greatly in the Lord; my soul rejoices in my God. For he has clothed me with garments of salvation and arrayed me in a robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom adorns his head like a priest, and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels.
For as the soil makes the sprout come up and a garden causes seeds to grow, so the Sovereign Lord will make righteousness and praise spring up before all nations.
Let us repeat that and highlight them.

God gave man do's and don'ts. In my stubbornness i seem to ignore or pay less attention to don'ts. But don'ts or limits are also good. I used to hear sky is the limit but since the sky is vast ,man could be saying there is no limit.
One of the examples of man disregarding limits is King Saul disobeying the command of the Lord . For details please see I Samuel 15:22 and related verses.
I sense now that i need to explore this subject more, so let me pause here and continue some other time. Well perhaps i am learning limits.
Having diagnosed with Parkinsons, i am aware of stable and unstable moments. As a Christian , I believe with my fellow Christians that Jesus Christ is our foundation or our Rock , our Fortress.
But as Christians are in the world (although we are not of the world),we sort of ride with it. if the world is smooth or prosperous we receive some of its riches (our true Source is God ). But what if the world will experience shaking, will we feel it ? In airplanes and cars there are seat belts, life vest or life guards for sea vehicles. Our seat belts are also dependent on the vehicles they are connected to.
As Christians let us make sure our foundation (seat belt or life guards) is on Jesus Christ, not on our bank accounts, properties, health , popularity, etc.
Jesus Christ experienced the most severe testing on earth that is the cross, He overcame or endured the torture unto death and He resurrected. He is well tested, he has overcame the world. He is our true foundation.
Praise and glory to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To the glory of God the Father.
