Happy Mother’s Day

Exodus 20 12

Exodus 20:12

Verse of the Day:  Exodus 20:12

 

Honor your father and your mother, so that you may live long in the land the Lord your God is giving you.

 

If you are blessed to still have your mother in your life honor her as the Lord commands.  Be devoted and respectful, affectionate and loving for she won’t always be here.  If there are grievances between you ask God to help you forgive each other.  If you are blessed to be a mother pray that you would be a good example for your children and that they would honor you in the same way you have honored your own mother.

You, Lord, are forgiving and good, abounding in love to all who call to you.

 

I’m so grateful that I serve a forgiving God.  If not for his forgiveness, grace, and mercy where would I be?  He is ready to forgive us, he won’t hold back, all we have to do is come to him with a sincere heart and ask to be forgiven through faith.

Verse of the Day: Matthew 12:36-37

Matthew 12:36-37

 

Verse of the Day:  Matthew 12:36-37

But I tell you that everyone will have to give account on the day of judgment for every empty word they have spoken. For by your words you will be acquitted, and by your words you will be condemned.

 

Your words matter, they have the power to hurt or help.  Sometimes we say things we don’t mean and sometimes we say things without thinking of the consequences of what we’ve said.  Once words come out of your mouth they cannot be taken back or unheard. We need to be careful with our words because we will have to give an account for them some day. Use your words to encourage one another, use them for good not evil.–

Verse of the Day: 1 Corinthians 13:5

1-corinthians-13-5

Verse of the Day:  1 Corinthians 13:5

Love…it keeps no record of wrongs.  – 1 Corinthians 13:5

 

Love fights fair.  We’re not perfect and there are going to be times when we disagree or have conflict but love fights fair.  It doesn’t bring up the past and it doesn’t purposefully hurt each other.  Love listens before speaking, is gentle, and fair.  Love tries to understand and love forgives.

Verse of the Day: Colossians 3:13

colossians-3-13

Colossians 3:13

Colossians 3:13

Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you.

 

Love forgives.  In all our relationships, whether it’s with a friend, relative, child, or spouse at some point one of us may do something to make the other angry or hurt our feelings.  We’re not perfect and we make mistakes.  It can be something small or it can be something really big, either way it’s how we handle those offenses that determines how the relationship will proceed.   It takes genuine forgiveness to make a relationship work and survive. God has forgiven us of all our sins both big and small and he expects us to forgive others just as he has been forgiving toward us.
