Sign of a True Christian"The Trademark of a True Christian
One of the most important facets of love is unselfishness, which is characterized in Romans 12:16 as the willingness to adapt and adjust to the needs and desires of others.
People who have grasped the meaning of this Scripture and applied it in their lives have learned what it means to be reduced to love. They are not selfish. They have learned to be adaptable and to adjust to others.
On the other hand, people who think more highly of themselves than they should find it difficult to adjust to others. Their inflated opinion of themselves causes them to see others as "little" and "unimportant." They selfishly expect others to adjust to them, but they are often unable to accommodate others without becoming angry or upset.
Which type of person are you? I used to be so selfish, but now, I can tell you from experience that living unselfishly is a much more satisfying way to live.
The trademark of a true Christian is the ability to adapt to others. Will you

Sayyid (Master) Umm(Mother) Abba(Father) - Akh(Brother)
Abba, Basil, Jalala, and Afzal have just been summoned to Sayyid Nail 's study causing them to leave Ihab and myself to roam "freely" around the Assassin fortress. Sadly I am unable to participate in any form of training here, the branch here believes that the women are to be protected and if they do help they are only allowed to provide shelter for the Assassins on missions. Ihab on the other hand is allowed to practice basic stances and knife throwing, but he promised to stay with me today.
Currently we are standing at the bottom of the path waiting for a group of guards to pass by. Ihab is now nine years old and is almost as tall as me, while I am 11 years of age. I suppose that's another disappointment about being a girl.
Looking around I tap my feet and crossing my arms across my chest. "Ihab let's just sneak past them." I whisper.
Ihab looks at me with a questioning look. "Abba said to stay out of their way." H

“Not much has changed?!” The louder, less swarthy, voice cried out. “You're a..
