Good morning it’s the beginning of a new week and we can’t wait to see what is in store for a new week. Why do cats love to work? Because they’re purr-fect at everything they do. Ha
Our meditation for today is
Prov. 15:23 ”Everyone enjoys a fitting reply; it is wonderful to say the right thing at the right time.”
It is always something we should ask God to give us - the right word at the right time. Jesus would begin and end his day with
time spent with His Heavenly Father and that must have been the reason for His helpful words that He shared with others.
You may ask; What words were that? Sometimes they were words of comfort, healing, joy, encouragement, or wisdom, but they were always fitting words.
Have you noticed that the right words require our careful attention to those around us. Their needs for the moment, and our recognizing their feelings.
Many times we fail to uphold those around us because we are focused on our own thoughts, rather than on others. That doesn’t mean that we totally ignore ourselves all the time, but it does mean focusing on them when they are needy. Have you noticed that many times when you are struggling that when you turn your attention to others that your own problems fade.
So God With God and He will lovingly care for you better than you are able to for yourself, while you are focusing on others.
