Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me. Matthew 25:40, NIV.
The way to tell how mature you are is by the way you treat people who can’t do anything for you. We can all be kind to the boss. He may give us a promotion. We can all be friendly to the popular person at school. If they like us, everybody will be our friend. That’s easy. But if we’re going to live the way God intends, we’ve got to learn to be good to everyone. Jesus said, “When you do good to the least of these, you’re doing it unto Me.” When you go out of your way to befriend the person that everyone shuns, Jesus said, “It’s like you’re doing it unto Me.”
Instead of rushing by the parking lot attendant you see at work each day, why don’t you take time to see how they’re doing? That person at the office that others ignore, why don’t you reach out to them and share the love of Jesus? We build the kingdom of God one life at a time. Show love, show His goodness, tell people about salvation through Christ. As you reach out and help others, just like a boomerang, that help will come right back to you, and you’ll move forward into the blessing and destiny He has prepared for you.
Prayer for Today:
Father, I desire to always honor You. Help me to see the needs of the people around me. Help me to treat them the way You would treat them. Show me how to help others rise higher and sow good seeds into them in Jesus’ name. Amen.
Adonai, God! You made heaven and earth by your great power and outstretched arm; nothing is too hard for you.
Jeremiah 32:17 (via moxleybugg)
Where shall I begin tonight? Maybe with the fact that you tell me you love me and want to be with me but I can’t even get a text message, much less a phone call from you. When I talk about you I sound like one of the girls my friends and I gossip about. That dumb girl that won’t take a hint. That…
Sounds so familiar, but I’m glad God got me out of this cycle, whew!
Don’t be afraid, for I have redeemed you;
I am calling you by your name; you are mine.
Because I regard you as valued and honored,
and because I love you.
Isaiah 43:1, 4 (via moxleybugg)
My faith rests not upon what I am, or shall be, or feel, or know, but in what Christ is, what He has done, and what He is now doing for me.
Charles Spurgeon (via breanna-lynn)
