Regardless of the divisiveness in our country, we are to shine with the kindness, joy, hope, love and caring nature of our Lord, Savior and Master, Christ Jesus.
Give me one hundred preachers who fear nothing but sin, and desire nothing but God, and I care not a straw whether they be clergymen or laymen; such alone will shake the gates of hell and set up the kingdom of heaven on Earth. – John Wesley
At the risk of repeating myself… GOD LOVES YOU! It doesn’t end there… He wants us to love one another as well. That’s where, sadly, it gets tricky – and I’m not even sure why. If we profess to have the Holy Spirit of God living inside us, it should be a piece of cake to love our brother, right?
We must live together as brothers or perish together as fools. – Martin Luther King, Jr.
We can show love to others – but it takes a lot of prayer beforehand. Let’s get on our knees and pray today for the necessary tools so that we can show mutual respect for one another! Once we’ve asked God to help us, let’s rise and be bigger! I want to rise about petty behavior, don’t you?
Love, forgiveness, showing interest in others in a genuine manner – that’s the blessing I want from God today! I will ask Him to give me the gift of real compassion for all people.
The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong. – Mahatma Gandhi
I want to exercise honest sympathy and true empathy in life. Think of the sacrifice Christ made for all of us – then think of the way He wants us to live. Let’s be the best representatives for Christ we can possibly be in 2016.There is such darkness in our country – and in our world. Let’s humbly ask God through Jesus for LIGHT and LOVE which pokes holes in the darkness.
Forgiveness does not change the past, but it does enlarge the future. – Paul Boese
There is hope for America! If we each commit to a life of forgiveness and peace, wrapped up in God’s love and grace, He will guide us to a brighter place and help us to share this country in unity. It’s my prayer that the words of Dr. King will resonate throughout the United States, especially at this crucial time in history. May God Bless America! 🙂
