Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse. Rejoice with those who rejoice; mourn with those who mourn. Live in harmony with one another. Do not be proud, but be willing to associate with people of low position. Do not be conceited. Do not repay anyone evil for evil. Romans 12:14-18 NIV
Good morning dear one,
John Wesley, founder of the Methodist Church, summarized God’s directives to his people which he called, 3 simple rules. Rule 1, Do good; not harm. Post-election, there are still hard feelings among friends and family members. Our new president has called for unity. Seriously, how do you feel about unity? Our neighborhood was very divided with signs for both sides lining the sidewalks. Can we all get along? Jesus implored each of us to love our neighbor, even our enemies. Open your heart. Reach out. Be the reason someone believes in good people.
Challenge: Live this week doing no harm with your words or deeds.
Prayer: Let the words of my mouth and the meditations of my heart be acceptable to you, oh God.
Creating a world of love, Linda
