Today Reminder – 22 February 2017

A reminder for today
Again I say, don't get involved in foolish, ignorant arguments that only start fights. (2 Timothy 2:23)

It is still raining. How awesome is our God. Traffic on the other hand was a mess. It felt like the rain made everyone sleep late and then this rippled into the traffic. I must admit again that I do not like traffic that much. In fact, I really, really do not like traffic. Life can be a lot like bad traffic. At times, it is slow and congested and at some places, it would flow better. Life plays the same traffic rules on us. At times, we just never have enough time, we struggle to get everything done, and at times, we seem to have enough time. Sometimes we are a little lazy, we leave stuff for later, and then there is not enough time. Sometimes we plan ahead to get something done and we just do not get to it. Sometimes we can see what still needs to be done, but it just does not want to end. Sometimes the robot is out and we need to take an alternative route. No matter the challenge, there is always an unexpected bend in the road. The worst thing is, is to get upset and angry and then argue and fight. 

Now listen to Paul’s words: A servant of the Lord must not quarrel but must be kind to everyone, be able to teach, and be patient with difficult people. Gently instruct those who oppose the truth. Perhaps God will change those people's hearts, and they will learn the truth. Then they will come to their senses and escape from the devil's trap. For they have been held captive by him to do whatever he wants. 

Do not forget that as you are stuck in traffic, the other people around you is also stuck in the same traffic. In life, you face challenges, but remember that other people are also gripped in their challenges. Everyone has their own troubles that they need to overcome. What must we do then? Well start by trusting God. Then place your challenges in His hands. Then be kind, be willing to help and teach and be patient. Gently instruct and leave the rest to God to change their hearts.

So today, give a helping, hand, and be nice to everyone.

Lord, let us shine out your glory and be with us so that we can plant a seed and teach someone about you. Be with us as we put on your armour and face the enemy. In Jesus name.

Have an awesome day dear friend of Jesus.
