Our relationships with each other shouldn't be built on what we can get out of them. We shouldn't look at friends, family, and strangers with the thought of getting ahead at their expense. Rather, our approach should be the opposite. How can we be beneficial to others? How can we show God's love through our words and deeds?
Whenever we help those less fortunate, we are serving and helping the Lord further His Kingdom here on Earth. Our words and deeds should reflect our true colors - what is in each of our hearts. Each of our small actions can plant seeds that, with God's blessings, grow into something much bigger. We must recognize these opportunities to serve and then act on them.
Check your heart and make sure that it is right with God so that your true colors will glorify Him!
Thank You for loving me so that I can love others. Please help my true colors to be of Your will and allow Your love to shine through all of my words and actions. Through Jesus I pray, amen.
