I woke up this morning, after a good night's rest, and soon found myself crying. Curiosity and a sleeping house caused me to hop online to catch up on social media and my heart sank. Hateful comments and posts, name calling and insensitive remarks were all over. I had to log off. I had to go give my sleeping kiddos a big hug and kiss and tell them I love them...
As I sit here on the porch and think about all the hatred from so many people who claim to be fighting for love, and what is right, God points me to His Word...
These are key take aways for me...
1. speak evil of NO ONE
2. AVOID quarreling
3. be GENTLE
4. show perfect courtesy toward ALL people
This message is for me today, as a believer. My job is to accept only He saves... according to His own mercy... NOTHING is accomplished through self-righteousness. And I should be careful to devote myself to good works (insert arrow pointing to the four take aways).
My prayer today is to allow God to show me the things in my heart keeping me from doing good, and to allow the Holy Spirit to renew me in those areas, enabling His love to be encountered by those He has in my life.
