Let love and faithfulness never leave you; bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart. Proverbs 3:3
Love and faithfulness are high in demand but low in supply. It’s easy to stray in both areas. If we’re not careful, we can become bitter and grumpy because of life situations. It’s important for us to realize that “our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all (2 Corinthians 4:17). Many have gone before us and have experienced periods of doubt and embitterment. It’s natural in the course of things because Satan does not want your life to flow easily. If it did, He wouldn’t be doing his job! There’s always a battle, always a struggle.
Praise the Lord for His faithfulness and love toward us. Praise Him as you consider what He’s brought you out of and through. Reach out to a friend this week and encourage him/her. Plan out how to really bless that person. Make the encouragement lasting. Keep pressing on, Brothers and Sisters.
