Do you know someone who needs your care, compassion, and kindness today?
What about you? Is there someone in your life who needs to know how much you love him or her? Is there someone who would benefit from your kind words or listening ear? Has the Father impressed upon your heart others to whom you should minister? If so, I encourage you to make the most of the opportunities God gives you.
Galatians 6:10 teaches: “While we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, and especially to those in the household of faith” As you meditate on this instruction, use the following to help you minister effectively as you show His love to others:
- Show your affection physically with a caring hug or act of service.
- Love others patiently.
- Express your affection generously.
- Love others tenderly.
- Always be forgiving.
- Care for others with devotion
- Love others cheerfully.
- Share your affection honorably.
As a family back in 2002 we adopted a saying which became our mantra for us as we do ministry: “Loving People Trumps Everything.”
If you can plan on being an encouragement to someone you will have to make it a priority in your life.
