If we spend too much time listening to the news, we may begin to feel that we are surrounded by people who are up to no good. This would be a stressful way to live our lives. While there are bad people and bad things that happen, we need to remember to start building each other up and promoting God's love and peace!
When we look at our neighbors, what do we feel and what do we do? We are not called to affirm behaviors that are sinful or harmful, but we are called to build each other up. Looking around, we should see ways to help promote God's love and the peace that only He can give. As we start building each other up, we can build God's Kingdom and strengthen our relationships with Him and with each other!
Start building up your neighbors by sharing the love and peace that God has shown you!
Thank You for building me up. Help me to share Your love and peace to build others up and to help build Your Kingdom. In Jesus' name I pray, amen.
