Verse of the Day: Romans 12:10
Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves.
As followers of Christ we should show sincere brotherly love to one another. Let’s encourage each other by giving honor where honor is due. Everyone needs to feel appreciated and we all know someone who deserves a little credit for everything they do. There are many ways to honor someone who truly deserves recognition. It can be as simple as saying thank you, your kindness has not gone unnoticed or it can be something extravagant. The point is to recognize and encourage them.

So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness.

Verse of the Day: 1 John 3:18
Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth.

Verse of the Day: Proverbs 3:5
Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding.
We won’t always know the answer to why we are going through something or why things are turning out the way they are, we just need to trust the one who does. God knows everything from the beginning to the end. He knew you before you were born and He knows the plans He has for your future. Trust in the Lord with all your heart, surrender to His will and know that He loves you and everything He does is out of love for you.
Verse of the Day: Psalm 34:15
The eyes of the Lord are on the righteous, and his ears are attentive to their cry.
Who are the righteous? Righteousness is more than the things we do; it’s what Jesus did for us on Calvary. We are made right with God by placing our faith in Jesus Christ. And this is true for everyone who believes, no matter who we are. (Romans 3:22 NLT) Because we have been made right with God we can rest assured that when we are in distress we can cry out to Him and be comforted in knowing that He hears us.
