Verse of the Day: Psalm 63:3
Because your love is better than life, my lips will glorify you.
Our worst day with God is better than our best day without Him. Our life, health, job, riches, friends and family and everything else are meaningless without the love of God. Everything here on earth is temporary but God’s love for us is forever and nothing can ever separate us from His love. We have so much to be grateful for and when we begin to glorify God for all He has done for us and count our blessings we see that His love is better than life itself.
Verse of the Day: Luke 12:15
Then he said to them, “Watch out! Be on your guard against all kinds of greed; life does not consist in an abundance of possessions.”
Christmas is exactly 25 days away and although it’s nice to be able to give gifts to our loved ones as a token of our love, it’s also a good time to remind ourselves that life is not about possessions. People trying to buy the newest car, the biggest house or the next big thing are never satisfied. Possessions cannot bring you true happiness, only Jesus can truly satisfy your soul. Life is not about the material possessions you have it’s about having loving relationships with the Lord, your family and friends.
Verse of the Day: John 15:15
I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you.
How awesome to have a friend in Jesus. He knows you, He cares about you and He loves you more than you will ever know. He always has your best interest at heart and He’ll never turn his back on you. He’ll never leave you, He’s always there for you and you can always count on Him. He wants to spend time with you so you will never feel alone. You can tell Him anything and you can believe that He will never betray your trust. There is no friend like Jesus, He’s the best friend you’ll ever have.
Verse of the Day: 3 John 1:2
Dear friend, I pray that you may enjoy good health and that all may go well with you, even as your soul is getting along well.
Make sure you take care of your body, but don’t forget to also take care of your soul, good health starts from the inside. Do things that make you smile and bring you joy. Do volunteer work, it not only helps others, it makes you feel happy too. Forgive, let go of anger and hurt so you can move forward. And remember, the most important thing you can do for your soul is to spend alone time with God.
Verse of the Day: 1 John 4:11
Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another.
God’s love flows to us and it also needs to flow through us. When we receive God’s love it will change our heart so much that we feel the need to share it with other people. We can share God’s love by practicing forgiveness, compassion and by praying for one another. God’s love is meant to be shared so let your light shine everywhere you go.
Verse of the Day: John 15:13
Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.
As we celebrate and enjoy our freedom this Memorial Day let’s take a moment to reflect on the true meaning of the holiday as we remember those who gave their lives in active military service. Let’s honor these heroes by praying for their families, praying for one another and praying for our country.
Verse of the Day: 1 Thessalonians 5:11
Therefore, encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing.
We may not be able to solve everyone’s problems but we sure can be an encouragement to everyone by spreading hope. Share the love of God, pray with each other and for each other. Use your words to build each other up not tear each other down. Be a friend and a blessing to those in need (we are all in need).
