May we not be deep-rooted in fear, anger and hatred. When we come across wrongdoing, let us pray and forgive. Hurting people hurt people.
Luke 6:29 says “Whoever strikes you on the cheek, offer him the other one also [simply ignore insignificant insults or losses and do not bother to retaliate—maintain your dignity]. Whoever takes away your coat, do not withhold your shirt from him either.”
Nothing can be accomplished if we are committed to only noticing negative patterns in everything around us. If we look hard enough we could absolutely find those patterns everywhere we go. However we should be in search of light, in every situation, What we focus on is what we become. Where the mind goes, the man follows.
“There will be tribulation in the world, cheer up! For He has overcome the world.” John 16:33
Because Jesus lives in us, we have the power and the authority to love unconditionally and to be the light in a dark place. There will always be evil in this world but what we should be focusing on, is ourselves. We will never be able to force anyone to treat us the way we think they should; that is not in our power. What’s in our power is the ability to love them anyway. We should forgive others as God forgives us. The outside world is not responsible for our happiness and inner peace – we are.
Others opinion of us is truly none of our business… ☺️🤍 & thank goodness for that!We mustn’t be concerned with these things; for everything will be taken up with God. We must pray diligently for all of humanity.
At the end of each day, we can only take responsibility for ourselves. We are not responsible for the choices of others.
Let us focus solely on ourselves and outwardly project all that God is and nothing less. He is watching over us and is with us every step of the way. God Bless each and every one of you. You are infinitely loved.
