VerseD: Hebrews 13:16

And do not neglect doing good and sharing, for with such sacrifices God is pleased.
Hebrews 13:16, NASB

God gives us stuff to do good and help others, to share with our brothers and sisters in Christ and those who are suffering and in need. All to His glory.

VerseD: John 13:14

If I then, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also ought to wash one another’s feet.
John 13:14, ESV

Christ was and is our ultimate example. We are to be humble servants to God by serving others, even when it seems silly, uncomfortable, and demeaning.

It is love. Get over yourself. Love them.

VerseD: Philippians 2:3

Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves.
Philippians 2:3, ESV

Do not think of how you will benefit when helping others. Remember, you are serving Christ Himself with each act of kindness, help, and generosity.

VerseD: 1 John 3:18

Little children, let us not love with word or with tongue, but in deed and truth.
1 John 3:18, NASB

It is not enough to point out sin and correction.

It is not enough to offer platitudes and comments.

We must be WITH people, helping, soothing, and encouraging, without neglecting the sin, the gospel, and nice words.

VerseD: Proverbs 17:22

A joyful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones.
Proverbs 17:22, ESV

Be kind to others, lifting each other up.

Encourage others, bring a shoulder or an arm to help.

Share the Lord, showing His joy and healing.

VerseD: Micah 6:8

He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?
Micah 6:8, ESV

What many fail to realize about the Golden Rule (treat others as you want to be treated) is how deep this rule goes.

We know about pursuing justice and showing kindness and mercy to others, but without the humble acknowledgment of the need for God’s love and wisdom those are basically meaningless.

Weekend Words & Sunday Stanzas – 12/07/2014

Change your understanding and find wisdom at Proverbial Thought!

I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.
Romans 12:1-2, ESV
