So encourage each other and build each other up, just as you are already doing. 1 Thessalonians 5: 11
As we prepare for Christmas, God wants us to share the LOVE of Christ. He longs for us to care with compassion and help those who will be blessed; even from the small offerings of good will.
Jesus wants us to love one another. He set an example of how we are to live our lives with HUMILITY, AWARENESS and KINDNESS for those who need to know they are loved.
The Bible says, “Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience."
Sometimes we forget to remind others that God is with us. We neglect to nurture the love of Christ and allow His light to shine. We focus on good will toward others at Christmas, but forget God wants us to share the love of Christ EVERY day of our lives.
We may not always understand how God will use us to show compassion and kindness, but He WILL help us recognize the needs of those around us and help us faithfully respond. He will fill us with JOY, when the love of our compassion has been used to glorify Him.
“May glory be given to God in the highest heaven! And may peace be given to those He is pleased with on earth!” Luke 2:14 NIRV Let us encourage one another with humbled hearts of kindness. God will help us understand why Christ's love is meant to be shared. He will help us show how much we care. ♥
Dear God, Thank you for the love of Your faithfulness. Help us develop caring hearts and respond to the needs of others at Christmas and EVERY single day. We will honor You with our love and gratefully remember; when we choose to encourage others with the love of Jesus, we are the ones who will truly be blessed. Amen
