THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:
BE ON THE LOOKOUT FOR SOMEONE YOU CAN BLESS
Is LOVE your greatest aim? How can you tell? EASY. Are you concerned about OTHER people, or are you concerned about only YOURSELF? Do you take time to make a DIFFERENCE, to ENCOURAGE others, to lift their SPIRITS, to make people feel BETTER about themselves? Do you follow the FLOW of love that God puts in your heart toward somebody in NEED? Or, are you too busy with your OWN plans? When God puts LOVE and COMPASSION in your heart toward someone, He’s offering you an OPPORTUNITY to walk in LOVE and make a DIFFERENCE in that person’s life. You must learn to FOLLOW that love as your greatest AIM. Do NOT ignore it. ACT on it. Be on the LOOKOUT for people you can BLESS. Be willing to be interrupted and inconvenienced if it means you can help meet somebody else’s NEED. YOU have what somebody needs.
Three things will last forever—faith, hope, and love—and the greatest of these is love.
(1 Corinthians 13:13, NLT)
