Joel Osteen (May-29-2019) Daily Devotion: Be Proactive in Sharing God's Love.
TODAY'S SCRIPTURE: See that none of you repays another with evil for evil, but always aim to show kindness and seek to do good to one another and to everybody. 1 Thessalonians 5:15, AMPC
TODAY'S WORD: Are you kind and considerate to people? Do you walk in love and prefer others above yourself? This passage tells us to be proactive! Notice the word "aim" and "seek." You must be on the lookout to share God's mercy and kindness and be good to all people. Moreover, we need to be kind to people even when they don’t deserve it. We need to walk in love and be courteous even when somebody is unkind to us,
The way you treat others has a great impact on how much of the blessings and favor of God you're going to experience. Aim for kindness and seek to do good. As you do, God will reward your efforts and pour out His abundant blessing on you. As you extend God's mercy to all those around you, you will discover the champion in you!
PRAYER FOR TODAY: God, I want to be a proactive Christian! Please remind me to seek out ways to serve others and to share your love with all people. Forgive me for sometimes putting myself first and help me to look for ways to share Your love with the friends and strangers I encounter today. In Jesus' name - Amen.
