Self check: You good?
We really have to guard our hearts because if we don’t, we will miss the opportunity to bless others. Sometimes, we can get so wrapped up in what we go through, that we allow what’s going on outside, to get inside of us, but God is calling us higher. Just because we’re hurting, doesn’t mean we should hurt others. Just because we’re going through the fire, doesn’t mean we should put others through hell. You know what Jesus said the two greatest commandments are?
First, “Love the Lord with all your heart, with all your soul and all your mind.” And the second one is, “Love your neighbor as yourself.” – Matthew 22:37-39. So before we get offended or go around with our defenses up, ready to snap on anyone we feel is trying us; remember, it’s our duty as God’s people, to be a light to others. How can the world tell us apart if we’re out here acting a fool and doing things from our feelings, when we should be doing things out of love. Remember, do unto others as you would have them do unto you.
You never know what people are going through. Try to act out of understanding instead of reacting out of hurt, fear or anger. Never miss the opportunity to be a light. You may be thinking, what about me? What about what I’m going through.
Who’s going to be there to support or comfort me while I go through? Can I be honest with you? When you pour into others, God will pour into you. God will sustain you and He will send the right people to bless you, His way. So, let’s make a pact, to be mindful about how we treat others.
You may not be doing okay, but don’t ruin it for others. God is watching what you do while you’re going through, just as He watches what you do after your breakthrough. Let’s love one another, with the love of God, and while you’re at it, check out my book, ‘How to let go and let God’ on Amazon. Love you. Ttyl.
