“Since all people enjoy being loved, I just use the joy music in education with biblical principles to share, spread, and teach everywhere I go, with God’s Wisdom.” ~ Jon Barnes
It is important to respect, love, and follow God’s advice all of the time. Living in the now is being in the right place at the right time, doing what you are supposed to be doing. You will be given great ideas and better solutions to your problems with the hand of God on your life in simplicity and humility.
Careful placement of your affections is in order when God comes first in your thought, work, and love languages. Your spouse, family, and others are at the top of this list and should remain in this order of importance. This connection and balanced order teach you how to love your enemies with convection, confidence, wisdom, honesty, and integrity because you love God, spouse, and family first.
Mastering the ability to love as God loves will help you to love your family even more. If you don’t love God, how can you possibly love your family? Your life will be a stumbling block for them, yourself, and others. It is wise to understand your loving role in your relationship with God’s plan for you and your family first.
Did you notice how wonderfully God has blessed your life, because of your obedience to His Ways, which clearly teaches us all how to love properly?

Cyrus Allows the Exiles to Return
1 In the first year of King Cyrus of Persia,[a] the Lord fulfilled the prophecy he had given through Jeremiah.[b] He stirred the heart of Cyrus to put this proclamation in writing and to send it throughout his kingdom:
2 “This is what King Cyrus of Persia says:
“The Lord, the God of heaven, has given me all the kingdoms of the earth. He has appointed me to build him a Temple at Jerusalem, which is in Judah. 3 Any of you who are his people may go to Jerusalem in Judah to rebuild this Temple of the Lord, the God of Israel, who lives in Jerusalem. And may your God be with you! 4 Wherever this Jewish remnant is found, let their neighbors contribute toward their expenses by giving them silver and gold, supplies for the journey, and livestock, as well as a voluntary offering for the Temple of God in Jerusalem.”
5 Then God stirred the hearts of the priests and Levites and the leaders of the tribes of Judah and Benjamin to go to Jerusalem to rebuild the Temple of the Lord. 6 And all their neighbors assisted by giving them articles of silver and gold, supplies for the journey, and livestock. They gave them many valuable gifts in addition to all the voluntary offerings.
7 King Cyrus himself brought out the articles that King Nebuchadnezzar had taken from the Lord’s Temple in Jerusalem and had placed in the temple of his own gods. 8 Cyrus directed Mithredath, the treasurer of Persia, to count these items and present them to Sheshbazzar, the leader of the exiles returning to Judah.[c] 9 This is a list of the items that were returned:
|silver incense burners[d]||29|
|10 gold bowls||30|
11 In all, there were 5,400 articles of gold and silver. Sheshbazzar brought all of these along when the exiles went from Babylon to Jerusalem.
