For many of us, our busy schedules filled with appointments and obligations keep us occupied to the brink of breakdown. We don’t have time for self-reflection or to take note of triggers and internal alarm bells telling us we’re not OK.
Email. Internet. Video. Texting. Tablets. Smartphones. The list never ends, does it? As technology advances, real human connection becomes harder and harder. If we’re not careful, each new gadget can draw us further away from the family of believers God designed us to be.
If you want to experience a close community with other Christians, you must first escape the trap of superficiality and to develop tight bonds that will feed your soul and mature your spiritual family.
Children need the tenderness and compassion only a mother can give. The warmth and security of a mother’s love keeps kids balanced, healthy, and confident.
Each day you can make a difference in someone’s life. The people you come into contact with give you opportunities to extending kindness, courtesy, and compassion.
We live in a society of isolation and indifference. But the truth is, we need each other. When you’re separate, you’re weak. And if you think you can make it through life on your own, you’re headed for a fall.
Calm evenings can turn quickly into stormy nights. What starts calmly as the beginning of a new school year can lead into storms of struggling to continue. What begins as a calm evening of marriage can lead into stormy nights through the passing years. No one is immune to these life surprises so make sure you’re anchored to the One who can come the storm.
Others may see you as someone you’re not but God is never fooled. He notices everything and knows if you’re a fake. When you stop trying to be someone else, you free yourself up to be who you are.
A repentant spirit is rarely found in our litigious society. How seldom we say or hear the words, “I’m wrong. I am sorry.”
With all we have on the go, it’s easy to get tunnel vision and only focus on our own lives. But God desires us to be winsome people who model grace and godliness to a lost and hurting world.
Sometimes we’re tempted to drop anchor and live a safe life in a secure harbour. But the Christian life isn’t about being safe or secure—it’s abut being salt and light in a dark world.
Often we don’t meet needs because we’re too busy living our own lives. But by not helping, we miss out on God’s blessings. It’s through providing for others our lives are enriched.
