Verse of the Day: Proverbs 22:9
The generous will themselves be blessed, for they share their food with the poor.
God is generous with us and He expects us to be generous with others. We serve a compassionate God and when we give ourselves to Him, He creates a compassionate heart in us. The awesome thing is that when we give to others from our heart God blesses us even more. Be generous to those in need and do everything in love. Remember, we can never out give God.
Verse of the Day: Proverbs 3:3
Do not let kindness and truth leave you; bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart.
Love is kind and your kindness shows compassion to the people you love. Sometimes we slip into a comfortable state where we take each other for granted, not intentionally, but it happens and we no longer go out of our way to be kind. The Bible tells us over and over that we should be kind to one another. How much more should we intentionally be kind to our loved ones? Let’s choose to go out of our way to show kindness to the people we love.
Verse of the Day: 1 Peter 3:10
Whoever would love life and see good days must keep their tongue from evil and their lips from deceitful speech.
Embrace life, be kind, be sympathetic, be loving, be compassionate, be humble. Keep your tongue from speaking foul, obscene or unwholesome words. Don’t lie or say hurtful things to anyone. Instead, speak blessings, be a blessing and you will receive a blessing. A forgiven heart is a changed heart, filled with gratitude and love. Avoid negativity by speaking positivity into your life.
Verse of the Day: Lamentations 3:22-23

Tomorrow is the first day of a new year, it’s a chance for a new beginning. Put the past behind you and start this new year with your focus on God. He loves you, He is merciful and His love and compassion for you never fails. Trust in the Lord with all your heart and see that He is good.
Verse of the Day: Isaiah 49:13
Shout for joy, you heavens; rejoice, you earth; burst into song, you mountains! For the Lord comforts his people and will have compassion on his afflicted ones.
We all have needed or will need comfort and compassion at some point or another. The world attempts to keep you content but the only place to find real comfort and compassion is in the Lord. Pour out your heart in prayer and the Lord will give you the comfort and compassion you long for.
Verse of the Day: Psalm 145:9
The Lord is good to all: and his tender mercies are over all his works.
God is the essence of perfect goodness. He is kind, caring, compassionate, generous and merciful toward all who seek Him. Everything from God is good and all good things are from God. Turn to God, His goodness and love last forever.
Verse of the Day: Proverbs 20:7
The righteous man walks in his integrity; his children are blessed after him.
Fathers, you are responsible for teaching your children about the Lord. Be a spiritual leader by living a life of integrity.

Fathers and children, remember that no one is perfect, forgive each other and try to live in peace.
