This is the day the Lord has made and I will be glad and rejoice in it (Psalms 118:24) !!!
I pray that everyone had a blessed Thanksgiving and was able to take the time to be with their family and friends and tell them how much they love them.
With that being said, it reminds me of the people that don’t have anyone to spend the holidays with or hear how much they are loved. So I charged all of us today to take a moment just to encourage someone and tell them you love them. It can be a stranger, someone you haven’t spoken to in a while, a family member, or a social media buddy.
Now I’m sure you maybe asking yourself why should you tell someone you hardly know, or someone you only talk to from time to time you love them? Well its simple! The Word shows us that we are connected (children of God) to our Heavenly Father through our faith in Jesus Christ (Galatians 3:26, NLT), so that makes us family. So since we are family it is important that we love each other as we love ourselves.
1 Corinthians 13, tells us about faith, hope, and love. The scriptures instructs us to abide in all three but the greatest is love. The greatest example of love is John 3:16 “For God so loved the world that He gave His ONLY begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but will have eternal life.” Now that’s love!!!!!! If God could give His son to save us, why can’t we tell someone we love them?
It is our responsibility as believers to love and encourage believers and non-believers alike. The world wants to convince us that love doesn’t matter anymore. The world wants to tell us to love yourself and bump everyone else. That’s the biggest set up of all times!!! The devil wants us to turn our backs on one another so that we can be divided and caught up in the chaos. But God told me to remind you that, we are His children through His Son Jesus Christ which makes us family, united as a part of one body. When you are a part of a family united in love no weapon formed against you will prosper!!!!
Remember We are the light of the world, and through that light our love will shine bright!!!!!
Be Encouraged and Love on somebody today, it can change the world!😘
