Scripture--1 Thessalonians 2-1 Thessalonians 5
This might just be my favorite piece of scripture. Even more, I was in a conversation today about this scripture! 5:14b-19 and 22 "Comfort the discouraged. Help the weak. Be patient with everyone. Make sure no one repays a wrong with a wrong, but always pursue the good for each other and everyone else. Rejoice always. Pray continually (without ceasing!). Give thanks in every situation because this is God's well for you in Christ Jesus. Don't suppress the Spirit...Avoid every kind of evil."
I'm not sure I can add much. Today, take one of those suggestions (commandments? pieces of advice) and try it out. Pray without ceasing! Rejoice in all things! Comfort the discouraged! Help the weak! How much time does it take to write a note or make a phone call or post on someone's facebook wall? Is it hard to turn off the car radio and listen to God for 10 extra minutes a day? What else could you do? What else would make a difference in your life or the lives of others?
O God of the morning--Let us listen more than talk. Challenge us to make a difference. Let us see your glories day to day! AMEN!
