I'm still thinking about a talk I heard at church last Sunday. By the look in the speaker's eyes and
hearing the emotion in his voice, I could tell he was not only very sincere, but he's been through a lot. He spoke of family problems, although without going into detail.
He said he now asks himself every morning, "What can I do today to live a Christ centered life?' and then he goes to bed each night asking himself, "Am I doing what I need to do to live a Christ centered life?"
I've been putting this to the test this past week. It's amazing to me just by asking
myself those questions each day, how the insight is coming.
Here are some other points this speaker made that I hope to remember:
*Patience is the understanding of other's faults. (I think this one is my favorite.)
*We need to forgive those who are attacking us.
*We are suppose to love ALL of our brothers and sisters.
*To love everyone is HARD.
*To love as He loved should be our highest goal.
Last week's church talk goes well with my scripture for the week.
The one I have on my fridge:
"Charity is accepting someone who has let us down; or resisting the impulse to become offended when someone doesn't handle something the way we might have hoped...The best and most clear indicator that we are progressing spiritually and coming unto Christ is the way we treat other people..." -Marvin J.
