Verse of the Day: Hebrews 3:13
But encourage one another daily, as long as it is called “Today,” so that none of you may be hardened by sin’s deceitfulness.
There is so much negativity in the world, on social media and everywhere we look. Instead of spreading negativity speak words of encouragement, pray for one another, remind each other of God’s wonderful promises. God has called each one of us to encourage each other daily. Don’t let sin harden your heart, instead be kind to one another. You never know what someone may be going through and a kind word may help them get through the day.
Verse of the Day: Ephesians 5:2
And walk in love, as Christ also has loved us and given Himself for us, an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet-smelling aroma.
Live a life of love by following the example of Jesus Christ. He loved us so much He gave all He had so we could be saved. Be imitators of Christ and let everything you do come from a place of love. To walk in love is not just to talk about it but to actually apply it to your daily life. We can never love as much as God loves us but we can try our best to be patient, kind and selfless. We can give our time and be of service to others for the glory of God. As we walk through our days in love, may our continued praises and thanksgiving be an offering and a sweet aroma to the Lord.
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.
Verse of the Day: Psalm 145:9
The LORD is good to all; he has compassion on all he has made.
God is the essence of perfect goodness. He is kind, caring, compassionate, generous and merciful toward all who seek Him. There is not a single person God is not ready and willing to bless; not a single person who God does not want to see happy and not a single sinner God would not show mercy to. 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 16:24
Gracious words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones.
Let’s make an effort to encourage the people around us, especially the people we love and care about most. Kindness doesn’t cost a thing yet it’s so valuable. We can build each other up with loving and kind words that promote hope and courage. A kind word can change someone’s entire day. Encourage love and kindness for they are never wasted in God’s eyes.
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: Psalms 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. God’s goodness and love last forever.
