Gentle and Humble

Matthew 11 29

Verse of the Day:  Matthew 11:29

Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.

If you’re feeling burdened, troubled, angry, out of control or your life is in turmoil turn to Jesus, He is the answer. Jesus is inviting you to take His yoke. In other words, humbly surrender to God’s will, be obedient to His Word and let Him guide and direct your life. Jesus was a great example of what it is to be gentle and humble. Gentleness = kind, mild in temperament; Humbleness = respectful, showing a modest estimate of one’s own importance. Follow the example of Jesus Christ, learn from Him and you will find rest for your soul.

Bad Influences

Proverbs 22 24-25

 

Verse of the Day:  Proverbs 22:24-25

Do not make friends with a hot-tempered person, do not associate with one easily angered, or you may learn their ways and get yourself ensnared.

 

It’s clear that our friendships can have an influence on us, either for good or bad.  It’s important to choose the people who are close to us wisely.  Choose godly friends that will be a positive influence in your life instead of people who can’t control their anger with whom you may eventually find yourself in a bad situation.  A bad temper is contagious.
