Family vibes

We don’t always have the best people in our lives. We don’t always have a great example of loving parents or family. So, it can be hard to understand the love of God and how He sees us when we don’t feel it from the people around us.

If you find yourself here, I want you to know that God sees you. He calls you friend, son, daughter. An heir through Jesus. He sees us a family, as his most prized possession. I pray these verses would encourage your heart today.

Going the extra mile

As Christians, are we going the extra mile to help other people? How much are we willing to do to help another person? I think as Christians we need to be the most helpful to others, always striving to go the extra mile!

Jesus went above the extra mile – He saved us by dying for us and rising again! He gave His life for us. He gave everything for us.

Also, remember that God will guide you in what He wants you to do (more on this next week).
How can you go the extra mile to help someone this week?



Listen Up.

I used to think being wise meant having all the answers to everyone’s questions. Not true. I’ll never have all the answers; neither will you. James writes, ‘You must all be quick to listen, slow to speak’ (James 1:19 – https://bit.ly/3i0aehd) There’s way more wisdom in that.

Sometimes when someone talks to me about a problem, I make it about me by relating their story to something I’ve experienced, as if I understand exactly how they feel and can solve all the things! Today, if someone comes to us with issues, maybe it’s wiser for us to just allow them to feel what they feel, and love them by listening.

Powerful kind of love.

I love a good action movie where the hero lets nothing stand between them and saving their family. Think any Liam Neeson movie LOL!

Romans 8:38-39 (https://bit.ly/2Qji2Q2) describes how absolutely nothing can come between us and the love of God. He doesn’t just look down on us as these cute little people He created. He loves us with a power that fights against anything that wants to stand between Him and us. He sees us as hella important.

That’s a more powerful love than any movie hero possesses. Take a moment today to think about what that kind of love means to you.
