Happy Day everyone!
Stay well. God bless you. Rev. Dr. Sandy Seaton-Todd
Bible Verses Colossians 3:21 Do not provoke your children or they may lose heart.
Colossians 4:6 Let your speech always be gracious.
Colossians 4:3 Pray for us that God may open a door for us to proclaim the mystery of Christ.
There are a lot of things in life that are a mystery but the power of kindness versus the power of meanness is not one of them. It is so easy when we get discouraged or tired to get out of sorts and become disagreeable and difficult to be around. When that happens we can bring everyone around us down too. When we lose our patience with children, we can cause them not only to lose heart but to lose faith in themselves.
The power of Christ is a mystery. But it is a mystery worth holding on to because the presence of Christ can heal anything. There are a lot of broken hearts that need healing. Let us invite Christ into our presence so even the worst mistakes and situations can be healed. When you lose heart or you see someone else losing heart, pray that God will open a door for the mystery of Christ to enter in. And may the mystery of Christ's healing power be all around us, keeping us kind and gracious, and redeeming the grieving hearts of those who are hurting.
