GOD, ME, AND TEA TIME!
"For when you demonstrate the same love I have for you by loving one another, everyone will know that you’re my true followers.”
(John 13:35 TPT)
A time of just being reflective and understanding what's really important.
I'm learning the reality of, tomorrow isn't promised. I can't put things off. I've also been evaluating stances I've taken from an eternal perspective and wondering if they are still valid or need refining, in this season.
Some questions I'm asking mysekf"
Will it matter in light of eternity?
Do I really need to be right?
Does my stance reflect God's love?
Will it bring God glory?
Is it a good witness?
Does it further the Kingdom of God?
Is it emotionally driven or Kingdom driven?
I've become more intentional about my words and making sure the people that matter to me know how much they matter, no matter the cost. People mattered to Jesus, and they matter to me. Now I have to make sure they know just how much they matter. This cannot be a pride thing. It has to be a love thing.
While eternity is forever and life is short, loving people, no matter what, is always a good choice.
So, today I'm being reflective making sure I really understand what's important.
"Love is large and incredibly patient. Love is gentle and consistently kind to all. It refuses to be jealous when blessing comes to someone else. Love does not brag about one’s achievements nor inflate its own importance. Love does not traffic in shame and disrespect, nor selfishly seek its own honor. Love is not easily irritated or quick to take offense. Love joyfully celebrates honesty and finds no delight in what is wrong. Love is a safe place of shelter, for it never stops believing the best for others. Love never takes failure as defeat, for it never gives up. Love never stops loving." (1 Corinthians 13:4-7 TPT)
