Today Reminder – 13 September 2016

A reminder for today
Dear brothers and sisters, I close my letter with these last words: Be joyful. Grow to maturity. Encourage each other. Live in harmony and peace. Then the God of love and peace will be with you.
Greet each other with Christian love. (2 Corinthians 13:11-12)

Harmony and peace are words that we seldom see in today’s world. The rush from one minute to the next is a never-ending occurrence and we get so agitated when we are late. This constant rush robs us of our joy and we fail to grow since we allow the world to influence us. This is obviously something that the enemy loves to use to push us out of our path and into darkness. 

We have lost respect for other and we love to live in a secluded world where we are the only person that matters. I see it every day in the traffic by the way people drive and how they seem to miss the fact that there are other people on the road also. I think circumstances and social media has a large role in this. We live in our secluded houses in security villages, because of crime and we follow people on Facebook or Instagram and we slowly lose our humanity.

How do we change that? Well I would start by encouraging each other so that we will be more joyful. When we stand together we will also grow together. It will increase our harmony and surely give us peace. Not only do we need to encourage, we must also show courage in the way we live and in the way we follow God. I do not need Facebook, because God is the only one you really need to follow and His Facebook is in our hearts. So follow and like Him every day. It will change your life.

Lord, I pray that we will find the courage to encourage and grow other. In Jesus name.
Have an awesome day dear friend of Jesus.
