Changing the World Around You by Joyce Meyer - posted November 26, Thursday
And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love. —1 Corinthians 13:13 NIV
One of the best ways to get your mind off a problem or a troubling situation is to go help someone else. When you display love to others, it not only blesses you, but it changes the world around you. Those are two great reasons to start living in love.
We’ve all tried selfishness, discouragement, and self-pity— and we have seen the terrible fruit of that. The world has seen the results of those things too. But thankfully, genuine love is different!
Let’s agree that we will live life God’s way—in gratitude and love. Be mindful to be a blessing to others (see Galatians 6:10), put on love (see Colossians 3:14), and live like Jesus. Jesus got up daily and went about doing good (see Acts 10:38). If we will follow that example, we are sure to change the world.
Prayer of Thanks: I thank You, Father, that there is a better way to live my life than focusing on my problems. Today, I choose to go out and follow the example of Jesus by doing good to others. With Your help, I am going to be an agent of change in the world around me.
