Romans 14:10-12 Comparison can be lethal. What others drive, or wear, or how others look is no one’s business but theirs. Living in harmony means letting others be—and cutting each other some slack.
James 1:19 Perspective is a wonderful thing. It helps us when we look at the familiar and with fresh perspective see something we’ve never noticed before. It changes our thoughts and our behaviour.
Romans 14:20-22 Allowing grace to flow freely means we let others be. You look different? We let you look different. You don’t dress like others? That’s fine, dress like you want to. That’s what grace is all about. Here are some traps we can fall into if we’re not careful.
Ecclesiastes 3:11 Everything you have is on loan. You can’t take any of it with you when you die. What matters most is what you pass on. When you make your life a gift to others, you’re investing in eternity. And that’s a great way to live.
Proverbs 13:25 The world’s idea of success is fortune, fame, and power. But the forgotten side of success is lasting satisfaction, contentment, and peace found through helping others. People remain the essential ingredient in life.
Romans 5:8 Grace is a foreign concept to us because the world doesn’t operate based on grace. It trends towards criticism and judgment. Grace says, “I forgive you...I accept you as you are...I value you.”
Psalms 139:13-14 Everyone is formed and uniquely woven by God Himself. You can’t get better than the hand of God shaping your life.
1 Peter 4:12-13 There are some trials in life you just can’t find reasons for. They hit you hard and you’re left wondering. But it’s often during these times of testing that God deposits some of His best lessons into your life.
Isaiah 55:2 We live in a success-obsessed society. The traits of fortune, fame, power, and pleasure are vaulted as the signs of success but none of this will give you satisfaction.
Ephesians 4:26-27 There are five stages of anger: mild irritation, indignation, wrath, fury, and rage. While anger itself isn’t wrong, uncontrolled anger never results in anything good.
1 Peter 1:6-7 Maturity is a life-long process, and it’s often through times of testing we mature the most. Some people never get it.
Mark 12:30 God wants you to love Him with all your heart, not just a part of it. He’s looking for men and women whose hearts are completely His, and who are willing to make a difference.
Proverbs 22:1 In our fast-paced world it’s easy to lose touch with the basics of life. Basics like integrity, decency, honesty, and commitment. These are not character flaws!
Ephesians 1:7 Have you ever seen a dog reach the end of his leash? Once he does he comes straight to a halt. We all reach the end of our own figurative leashes with each other and with God at one point or another. The good news is God will always forgive us and always extend His grace to us, no matter what. We just need to accept it. Now shouldn’t we do the same with others?
Matthew 28:20 No one knows what tomorrow will bring. But take the uncertainty of tomorrow as an opportunity to strengthen your faith—realize your future isn’t in your hands; it’s in God’s. He is with you always.
