Spend Time with Others
Treat others with the Golden Rule
Reach out to Others
1 Corinthians 13:1-13(NKJV)
1Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I have become sounding brass or a clanging cymbal.
2And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing.
3And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body £to be burned, but have not love, it profits me nothing.
4Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up;
5does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil;
6does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth;
7bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
8Love never fails. But whether there are prophecies, they will fail; whether there are tongues, they will cease; whether there is knowledge, it will vanish away.
9For we know in part and we prophesy in part.
10But when that which is perfect has come, then that which is in part will be done away.
11When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child; but when I became a man, I put away childish things.
12For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part, but then I shall know just as I also am known.
13And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love.
Love others as God has loved us. Notice we are not to do things in part, but in fullness. We are to do it in the fullness of His love. Put on faith, hope and love. Love is the greatest. Can love hurt at times? Love hurts when it is the wrong proportion. When we do not love God first and then others second we miss out. We need to draw closer to God in all aspects of our life.
We never know when we will need to share His love. We need to be a walking testimony. Share His love, how He has saved us and walks with us daily. There are times we will trip in our daily walk. We will make mistakes. We will go through trials and wonder where was God? God allows free will. We will make better choices and decisions when we seek Him first. When we do mess up know that what you learned needs to be shared with others. We are never given more than we can handle and in turn share this.
Others need to know just because we know Jesus that the storms will cease in His timing. We can overcome the storms and know who can calm them when we are with Him.
If we do not give testimonies our pride gets in the way. When our pride gets in the way we are not giving God the glory. Give Him the glory and share with others what He has done for you. Never be ashamed of what you have gone through. God was with you every step of the way and we need to tell others about how much He loves you. So learn to trust Him and share that trust with others.
