Not everyone is out to get you! ( Note to self!!! )



Good morning, don’t you want to make today one of those days where you clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness and walking in humility, gentleness and being patient with all the people around you.  Let’s take a softer approach when we deal with our own families and friends.  It seems we are harsher with the people closest to us than with strangers we don’t even know.  Why do you think we do that?  We forget that these people closest to us are actually our loved ones. 

I want to challenge you today to clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patient.  Let’s put this out there and work on this today.  Let’s remind ourselves that not everybody is out to get us, especially the people closest to us.  So let me know how your day went.

A verse to meditate on while we pursue our goal in being more gentle and kinder:  Colossians 3: 12 ‘As God’s chosen people, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience.’

I say we are too caught up in our own little worlds, we believe that we are capable of so much and that when times are difficult then we call on the Lord Jesus.  When nothing happens and we do not receive answered prayers we lose hope and start looking for new ways to get out of the mess we find ourselves in.
In the International Children’s Bible we read that “change your hearts and lives and be baptized,”  the words that stood out for me is “change your hearts and lives.”  I have been thinking about these words.  Something m…
