1 Peter 3:12
For the eyes of the Lord are over the righteous, and his ears are open unto their prayers: but the face of the Lord is against them that do evil. (KJV)
Our life is our best sermon. We need to stop occasionally and reflect on how much our happiness depends upon the way we act toward those around us. When we greet someone with a smile, we usually get a smile in return. When we greet someone with a frown, we’re not nearly as likely to see a smile on their face. Make it a point every day to greet each person you meet with a smile, and see how much better your day goes knowing that you have brightened their lives at least for a moment.
Our Heavenly Father,
Thank You for this day and all of Your blessings in our lives. Abba Lord, have Your Holy Spirit help us to reflect Your love in our lives as we come into contact with those who need encouragement in these troubled times. May our show of love and compassion influence others to do the same toward those they meet and let it spread outward, consuming despair and leaving peace in its path.
We lift our prayers up to You in the Name of Your Son, Jesus the Christ...Amen.
Good morning to one and all. My thoughts and prayers are with you and yours for a safe wonder-filled day.
May God Bless,
