Our Attitude

For if you love those who love you, what reward have you?
Do not even the tax collectors do the same?

(Matthew 5:46)

LORD Jesus, we praise You, for You are the perfect Lamb of God. Forgive us, O God we pray, whenever we forget all that You have done for us. Enable us to love You more and more with each day, and help us to follow in Your footsteps. Give us an hunger for Your Word and the wisdom to learn and obey what it says. In Jesus’ mighty name we pray. Amen.

What is your attitude toward the people God has placed in your life? In what kind of an attitude do you approach your daily tasks? How about when it comes to suffering? 

People in Your Life

Do you know of someone who talks, and keeps on talking, and ends up talking a lot? Or others, perhaps the ones that are really close to you, who are just too quiet and will not share what is on their heart and mind? Don’t you just love that person that God has placed in your life that is just so loveable and easy-going? What about the other, though, who seems to be an expert in finding various ways on how to make your life more miserable with each day? 

Daily Work

Think of the daily tasks that you are enjoying to do. Now, think of the things you do not mind to do, the ones those that you are not so keen about doing. What about the daily work that demands a lot of your attention, your time, and your physical strength?  

Grief and Suffering

Years ago, during a Bible study, the preacher who sat next to me mentioned that we have to “suffer well.” This is easy to say for someone who has no or only little sorrow at the moment. What about the people, though, who have just lost a loved one through death? How about the person who is in great physical pain right now?

We will continue our study in Matthew 5 next week, so please do come back. Until then, remember to,

Show God’s Love to others;
Do your work as unto God and not unto man;
And in all your pain and suffering, trust the LORD today.
