Triumph Over Trivia

Think of each friendship as a beautiful flower in the garden of your life. That garden must be nurtured, fertilized and watered regularly. Don’t let petty and insignificant differences, trivia, sap the beauty of those flowers. “Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all […]

Skip Warfare Today

Make today a peaceable day. Don’t feed an argumentative spirit in those around you. Insist on praying together with those who pursue points of disagreement. God is well known for honoring peacemakers. “If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men.” (Romans 12:18)

Resurrect Hope in Someone Today

Hope is the expectation of favorable changes. Don’t permit someone you love to remain depressed and devastated by their present circumstances. Remind them that Jesus Christ is still the Healer and Miracle Worker in every circumstance of life. “But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to […]

Talk It Out

Friendships die through neglect. Don’t expect others to read your mind. Voice your concerns over any offense and express your desire to make things right. Silence often waters the root of bitterness. Talk it out. “Moreover if thy brother shall trespass against thee, go and tell him his fault between thee and him alone: if […]

Celebrate Those who Celebrate You

Those who discern your worth deserve special recognition. Even Jesus instructed His disciples to respect those who received them and disconnect from those who rejected them. Go where your contribution is celebrated. Jesus did. “And into whatsoever city or town ye shall enter, inquire who in it is worthy; and there abide till ye go […]

Reprove with Sensitivity

Criticism hurts. Even when you give it in love. Yet, it is your personal responsibility to provide caution, correction and warnings when someone you love is on the brink of disaster. Your instruction is their opportunity for promotion from God. “Poverty and shame shall be to him that refuseth instruction: but he that regardeth reproof […]

Insist on Integrity

Integrity is truthfulness. It is doing what you say you will do. Demand it from yourself and reward it in others. Do right by others, and God will do right by you. “Judge me, O Lord; for I have walked in mine integrity: I have trusted also in the Lord; therefore I shall not slide.” […]

Sow Affection Generously

Hospital tests have proven that even babies will die if they do not receive touching and loving affection. You are not an exception. Reach out to someone today. Touch. Hug. “Be kindly affectioned one to another with brotherly love; in honour preferring one another;” (Romans 12:10)

Furnish Gentleness

Gentleness is like heat in a cold world. Those around you bear the wounds of rivalry, jealousy and inferiority. Pour the oil of gentleness and you will become their greatest memory of the day. “And the servant of the Lord must not strive; but be gentle unto all men, apt to teach, patient.” (2 Timothy […]

Interrogate Your Friends

Everyone is a well of information. Draw from it. Drop your bucket regularly into that well. Schedule an appointment this week with your three most successful friends. Bring your list of most important questions, and get the answers you need. “A wise man will hear, and will increase learning; and a man of understanding shall […]
