“So if there is any encouragement in Christ, any comfort from love, any participation in the Spirit, any affection and sympathy,complete my joy by being of the same mind, having the same love, being in full accord and of one mind.”
Have you ever been around someone who made your day better by simply seeing them or talking with them?
Have you, on the other hand, been around someone who had the opposite effect on you?
We have all been around these types of people. I think it is safe to say that we all agree that we would rather be around someone who brightens our day rather than the one who brings a dark cloud with them when they show up.
Today, I simply want to encourage you to be a blessing to those with whom you come into contact. We never know when our path crosses with someone else’s path, what kind of day they may be having. There are many times in which people are facing struggles that we know nothing about. Sometimes all they need is a kind word, a simple smile, or a hug to let them know they are not alone.
One of the best ways to let God’s light shine through you is with the simple things. Many times we fool ourselves into believing that since we can not do something big that we do not have anything to offer. Most of the time it is the small things that really matter the most. These are the things, when done with a heart of love, that people are going to remember. These simple little things are the things that will show the love of Jesus to the world.
I want to challenge you today to be a blessing to those around you. Make it a point to encourage someone else. Offer a kind word. Do something for that person you know might be struggling. Write a short note to someone just to let them know you are praying for them. Be a blessing.
