In this life there are many reasons to smile.
Then there are also reasons to frown.
But who willingly wants to walk and live with a frown on their face. I think we all can agree that we like to be happy, at peace and content.
Each of us has a role in each others life. That role is to encourage and pick out and affirm the best qualities we see in each other. Doing this would be better than picking out the worst quality or the very thing we dislike the most about another individual. Todays devotional by Mart DeHaan has inspired me to write this post. For today, to encourage and show mercy to those I interact with today, and I pray Lord, that I will remember to do this daily, not just today.
This is such an encouraging verse:
Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing. 1 Thessalonians 5:11.
May we all fulfill this verse in our lives today. May we quickly repair a conversation that didn’t go as well as we expected. May we quickly apologize when we need to, regardless of who was or is wrong. May we not blame, but aim to repair what went wrong. Let’s not be slow in apologizing, but quick and ready. Lord, here is our request. You see our hearts and You see our intents, may they be true and right in Your sight. We love You Lord, in all and every way. In Jesus’ name, amen.
Have a blessed and wonderful day beautiful readers!
