A person becomes a leader only by God’s grace. He is able to influence people only because God allows him to have that power. Apart from God he can do nothing. That’s why a leader must guard his heart at all times. The condition of his heart will be detrimental to his leadership.
You know you love a person when you’re willing to set aside your own comforts to invest your time, talents, and treasure to pursue the good of that person. If all you’re thinking about is how to get something from that person, you’re a consumer, not a person who understands love.
The evidence of your spiritual maturity is not Bible knowledge nor eloquence of speech. It is the depth and sincerity of your love for others. A self centered person who is well-versed in the Bible and knows how to teach it, but has no real love, is immature.
Never lose hope amidst negative situations in life. Hope is what will give you endurance. It will also enable you to fulfill God’s will, especially as you relate with other people in love. Love is hard, but faith and hope will strengthen you. Put your hope in the Lord.
I pray for all who are sick. May the healing hands of the Lord touch you and heal you. May He strengthen your body and lift you up until you are able to move around again, doing all the things that you love to do. May He give you the grace to live and serve Him in Jesus name.
Diversity is a gift from God. We should not resent it. Instead, we must celebrate it and take advantage of it. Often conflicts occur because we cannot accept each other’s strengths and weaknesses. We easily judge people not for what is right or wrong but for our differences.
