  1. Lovely post. There is something special about these words today. They resonated with me, and I know they will with others too.

  2. A lovely post indeed!! As I sat in the dark this AM trying to wake up before getting ready for work, I started to get overwhelmed by today’s agenda. I sometimes lose focus on my purpose in this life and feel like I’m surviving instead of living. Jesus’s command came to mind that my purpose is to love Him with all my heart, soul, and mind and to love my neighbor! If I seek Him first, all else will fall into place! And then I opened today’s reading and felt so full to read a beautiful example and a reminder of how to put our purpose into action! So, today I will intentionally look for ways to be like Jesus!

    • Shar!! You’ve got me fired up to be fired up! I’m praying right now that BOTH of us (and anyone else with whom this resonates) to be intentional about showing (and speaking) the love of Christ <3.

  3. So encouraging and comforting to know I am not the only one who hates to see the hatefulness! Oh God, how this world needs a reminder that kindness matters. Please, thank you, may I, yes sir, yes ma’m…things I learned in kindergarten and I still live by them today! The things some want to teach our children is the total hatefulness of Satan. I pray for all to please love others as we love ourselves.

  4. This is really a timely piece about our Christian walk, Robin! Thank you for your wise promptings. I will store them up and pull them out as needed. Thank you!

  5. Wonderful reading for a Monday morning \0/
    Thank you Robin. The kindergartener in me is ready to face the day… blessed, grateful

    “Every interaction with others is an opportunity to love well and bring glory to God. When we reflect any aspect of God’s character, we’re creating the kind of culture our broken world needs to see. We never know who might be watching, and our words and actions might just be preaching a message they need to hear.”

  6. I thank God for this message. The Holy Spirit always prompts me whenever I say or even listen to words about other people I am not sure are the truth. I try to encourage my family not to gossip about people. But lately I was beginning to go off a little bit. Thank God for waking me up with this message.

    • Grace,

      I’ve often said conviction without condemnation is a gift of God to us; I hope you sensed only conviction! Our tongues and ears can get us in so much trouble, can’t they?

  7. Robin,

    I, too,, am dismayed at the lack of civility among people who identify as “Christian.” It doesn’t take much to be kind to others-a simple smile, thank you, holding doors open. Often times at work you will hear me say “thank you” to EVS (cleaning) people & central supply personnel for bringing us our needed items. When I volunteer with Loaves & Fishes Food Bank the customers often say thank you for the meals. I will say “have a good weekend & God bless you”. I want to glorify God in ALL that I do & say.

    Blessings 🙂
