Well hello there…Happy April to ‘ya! Hard to believe 2012 is 1/4 of the way over…let’s not dwell on that for too long.
I had a great weekend visiting with the fam, but between the excitement and travels and 90+ degree days…I’m feeling a little worn-out. So today I thought I’d borrow a few words from my favorite book (you may have heard of it…it’s called the Bible *wink*) to start your week off on the right foot. 🙂 I’m “reading” to you today from the Message…Romans, chapter 12, not sure what verses because, well, the Message doesn’t do verses.
Enjoy & have a great week!
So here’s what I want you to do, God helping you:
Take your everyday, ordinary life – your sleeping, eating, going-t0-work, and walking around life – and place it before God as an offering.
Don’t become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God.
The only accurate way to understand ourselves is by what God is and by what he does for us, not by what we are and what we do for him.
Love from the center of who you are and don’t fake it.
Be good friends who love deeply; practice playing second fiddle.
Don’t quit in hard times; pray all the harder. Help needy Christians; be inventive in hospitality.
Laugh with your happy friends when they’re happy; share tears when they’re down.
Discover beauty in everyone.
Don’t run up debts, except for the huge debt of love you owe each other.
That last one is from Romans 13. It’s good stuff huh?!
KEEP CALM & BE WHO GOD HAS CALLED YOU TO BE!
