There are times when we may react in ways that are not appropriate or that we later regret. In these times we are "thieves" of others' joy and happiness. Before reacting in a situation, we should stop and think about the example that Jesus set for us. Instead of acting harshly or rudely, we should react in a way that shows God's love. We don't have to agree with everyone, but we can react in loving ways that allow Jesus to open the door to God's Kingdom!
Don't be a thief of others' joy. Instead, show God's love that introduces others to Jesus!
Thank You for loving me and for sending Jesus to open the door to Your Kingdom. Help me to show Your love instead of stealing joy from others. In Jesus' name I pray, amen.
