December 29, 2015 – Galatians 6:35

Galatians6-35If you think you are too important to help someone, you are only fooling yourself. You are not that important. Galatians 6:35Think about someone who has helped you.  Why did they help you?  Do you help others?  Seeing what others need and how to help them is a gift.This verse from the Bible, tells it. The man answered, “‘You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, all your strength, and all your mind.’   And, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’” Luke 10:27.Matthew 25:40 says, Then the King will say, ‘For sure, I tell you, because you did it to one of the least of My brothers, you have done it to Me.’First comes loving the Lord our God and then loving others.  Loving means serving and helping.  When we help others, it is helping Jesus. Love is strong and builds truth and beauty in life.  Hate destroys life, the life that God created.  We choose and are responsible for how we behave as children and as we grow up.Growing up, I always wondered when I would be grown up… I am now a great grandmother, and I am still growing up.  A big part of growing up is being responsible for the way we behave.  Do we hurt others with our actions or our words?  Do others see the same love in us that God has?  Or do they see someone who only thinks of himself?Did you know how much Jesus loves you?  He said, “Let the children come to me. Don’t stop them! For the Kingdom of God belongs to those who are like these children. I tell you the truth, anyone who doesn’t receive the Kingdom of God like a child will never enter it.”Pay careful attention to your own work,  for then you will get the satisfaction of a job well done, and you won’t need to compare yourself to anyone else. For we are each responsible for our own conduct. Galatians 6:4-5
