“Each of us should please our neighbors for their good, to build them up.” Romans 15:2
Dear Lord Jesus, I will never know perfectly what it’s like to live 100% for others and their welfare. That’s why this passage and its cousins in Scripture will always resonate with me. I naturally want to please myself and not people around me. By your Holy Spirit, cleanse out of my heart today the new selfish motives that have precipitated there. Give me a deep love for others and their welfare at every level so I do and say what is best for them. I want to spread the good news and be the good news for everyone I meet. Amen.
Make someone’s day today and you will create a memory for them that keeps on giving long after today is forgotten.
