What is this world coming to?
Isn’t it easy to look at another’s behavior, attitude, or words and ruminate over how they annoy, offend, hurt, or disgust you? It is much harder however, to look at one’s self and ask, “Can my behavior be classified as any better?” OR “Was my response to their behavior equally annoying offensive, hurtful, and disgusting?” How easy it is to be prideful with false feelings of superiority! Yet we rarely pause to consider what is creating the other’s storm. Our call to action is a simple: love.
Above all, let your love for one another be intense, because love covers a multitude of sins. 1 Peter 4:8
We all are imperfect in some way, which is how the Lord humbles us. If we had no challenges in life, how would we ever come to realize that we needed a Savior? Praise you, Lord, for the brokenness that leads us to you! Heal our imperfections!
The light of the moon will be like the light of the sun, and the light of the sun will be seven times greater, like the light of seven days, on the day the LORD binds up the wounds of his people and heals the bruises left by his blows. Isaiah 30:26
Let us pray for family, friends, and the one in the mirror.
Lord, help us to find our way to you. Heal us from all that mars our beauty, especially on the inside. Purify our words so that they may build up, not tear down. Clean our minds from all that diverts us from focusing on you. Redirect our “busyness” to that of serving one another. Give us warm hearts filled with your tender love, so that all those we meet will come to know you and seek you as they experience your love emanating through us. Then we will be able to answer the question, “What is this world coming to?" with a resounding, “YOU!”
Power came forth from Jesus and healed them all. Luke 6:19
Peace, Joy, and Love,
Love and prayer. The only weapons needed to create a better world. Pass it on!
