A Thought: On any given day…

I met someone a few weeks ago. We may or may not ever see each other again. What was remarkable was her assertive way of introducing herself, her pleasant presence, and her genuine (yet not in a nosy way), interest in me. Jesus did the same thing. He struck up a conversation, showed a genuine interest in others, and offered His presence in whatever need was presented—healing; conversation piercing through loneliness, isolation, or rejection; teaching God’s Truth and offering God’s Love by example. Today is a new day. You can offer encouragement and grace, or be absorbed in your agenda. That truly is our choice everyday…

Gal.2:20 “I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.”
