Building Others Up

Romans 14:19

Pursue the things which make for peace and the building up of one another.

Show grace, choose joy, be love!  This is a phrase that a friend of mine has chosen for her life verse.  I would say that it’s perfect!

Do we wake each day pursuing the things which make for peace and build one another up? Or are we up and running, with the hustle and bustle of the day, going through the motions, not really paying attention to how we respond to each other?  Our intentions may not be bad but our lack of INTENTION may have bad consequences.

So I challenge you today to be intentional in your pursuit of things which make for peace and build up one another.

Lord, I am grateful that You are the perfect example of love and the perfect example of grace.  I’m grateful that You have enough to go around for everyone.  Please be with me Lord in my pursuit of peace making.  Help me to build and not tear down.  Lord be with myself and my family and friends as we look to You for guidance in living with others. Amen!
