Daily Devotional: September 12th
Sharing Words of Hope
Lets see how inventive we can be encouraging love and helping out, not avoiding worshipping together as some do but spurring each other on. Hebrews 10:24-25
Hope, like other human emotions, is contagious. When we associate with hope-filled Christians, we are encouraged by their faith and optimism. But, if we spend too much time in the company of naysayers and pessimists, our attitudes, like theirs, tend to be cynical and negative. Are you hopeful, optimistic, encouraging believer? And do you associate with like-minded people? Hopefully so. As a faithful follower of the One from Galilee, you have every reason to be hopeful, and you have every reason to share your hopes with others. SO today, look for reasons to celebrate God's endless blessings. And while you're at it, look for people who will join you in the celebration. You'll better for their company, and they'll be better for yours. To the loved, a word of affection is a morsel, but to the love-starved, a word of affection can be a feast.
The tongue that heals is a tree of life, but a devious tongue breaks the spirit. Proverbs 14:4
This is such a good message. Positivity is so positive. And it can be contagious. Thinking negative and worrying is only an insult to God. Being hopeful gives you so many different reasons to want to achieve certain goals and moving on with your life. Encourage each other. The world is already crazy enough. Have great day. Thank God and thank you.
