Whosoever believeth that Jesus is the Christ is born of God: and every one that loveth him that begat loveth him also that is begotten of him.2 By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God, and keep his commandments.3 For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous.4 For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.
I John 5:1-4 (KJV)
There always seem to be some-kind of drama, family crisis or difficult situation. Every day we face negative people, situations or internal feelings.
ENJOY the people in your life, Be GRATEFUL for the people in your life, LOVE the people in your life! Every moment COUNTS. Be a PROUD papa, uncle, son (or mama, aunt, daughter)! ENCOURAGE people you encounter, friends and family. RECEIVE encouragement, complements and grace from those who love you. Above all else, PRAY for the people you LOVE, APPRECIATE, ENCOUNTER and yes, those that IRRITATE you… that’s our mission. It’s our responsibility. This week – I’ve learned and experienced this great lesson & commandment to be true. I don’t ever want to leave a situation where I can encourage someone who is hurting, stressed or at a loss for expression. Let me show Christ’s Love through my life and my words.
