I would prefer noone becomes angry with me and this post..discernment doesnt increase or something without training.. am I right? but maybe I should be prepared for temptation before it happens and not have to learn after I make mistakes
Hebrews 5:14 (King James Version)
14But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.
My driving instructor came close to my house today expecting it seems to take me driving... me and my brother were the only ones home.. and not very long before the driving instructor came maybe I thought about not leaving my brother home by himself because he is not 16 (by law to stay home alone maybe you have to be atleast 16...but my brother will be 16 in july this year God willing)..
to me maybe I feel it is okay to leave him home while I go for driving... it does not seem anything will happen to him while I am gone if I go if I pray for him maybe.. but I still felt like I would be doing wrong maybe if I went and left him..
(we are to obey the law unless it goes against Gods commandments..if I do not it would be sin.. am I right?)
So I asked the driving instructor something like "is it okay if I dont go driving today" to which he replied something like "yes..." he seemed somewhat okay with it maybe and he asked something like "why don't you want to go driving" to which I may of replied "I dont want to" or "I just dont want to" because I did not want to tell him its because I dont want to leave my brother at home and I think he knows im christian and it might give him a bad idea of christianity... but I think that reply might of influenced him to feel bad about himself as a person if he did feel that (like he doesnt deserve a reason.. but I dont know if he felt that)
I want to buy him a present for not reacting in an angry way or something so he does not feel I do not care about his feelings and so he does not be angry with God because of me or think bad about the way of christians or think bad about christianity..
would that be a bad idea? as if I can make it up to him (if I did something wrong.. do you think I did wrong?) with a gift maybe? or have him maybe understand I meant to hurt his feelings or something with a gift?
but then would he lose his heavenly reward (if he would get one even though he is not christian maybe) for doing maybe a good deed to me?
Matthew 10:42 (King James Version)
42And whosoever shall give to drink unto one of these little ones a cup of cold water only in the name of a disciple, verily I say unto you, he shall in no wise lose his reward.
Genesis 12:3 (King James Version)
3And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.
Would these verses be relevant maybe?
If you have anything right and helpful to say, say it if you want God willing
Also would it be wrong to put food on a table near where a friend is playing a bad gun game so he can eat it? if you think it would not be wrong why do you think so?
Also how old does a person have to be to be allowed to stay at home with no adults in certain states in australia or america if anyone knows? If children are allowed to travel on bus and train alone (are they?) why would they not be allowed to stay home alone?
