Baby Nap time thoughts..

My Bible study gals and I recently finished a study about how we treat others and about handling how others treat us. The main points that I learned through this study is that is all comes down to me. People are going to say and do things that I really don't understand. The only person I can control is myself and the Lord is wanting us to learn true forgiveness and unconditional love through these difficult situations.

Luke 6:32-36 says

"If you love those who love you, what credit is that to you? Even 'sinners' love those who love them. And if you do good to those who are good to you, what credit is that to you? Even 'sinners' do that. And if you lend to those from whom you expect repayment, what credit is that to you? Even 'sinners' lend to 'sinners' expecting to be repaid in full. But LOVE your enemies, DO GOOD to them, and lend to them without expecting to get anything back. Then your reward will be great, and you will be sons of the Most High, because He is kind to the ungrateful and wicked. Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful.: 

Another thing that has been on my mind lately is the impact that our words have. They have potential to either build or tear down people. Many times I have been amazed at how naturally is comes to put other people down even at church! Oh how awful to tear down your own family of believers. I pray that my words would be edifying!

The song "Words" by Hawk Nelson seem to play on a continual loop in my head these last few days and so far I'm not sick of it! As you listen to this song may you consider the words that we will exchange with others today and I hope it gets stuck in your head because it's a constant reminder for me to be very careful what I say and to build others up!

May my words point the world back to you, Lord.
