Ephesians4-9Junior-Snippet #2Always be humble, gentle, and patient, accepting each other in love. Ephesians 4:2

Have you ever wanted what you want NOW?  It is hard to wait.  It is hard to share.  It is hard to remember to give  someone else our place in line.  When we let someone else go first or have the first cookie, that is being humble and patient.  God is patient and humble and loving. Gentle means not socking the other person when they get what we want first. God made us and He gave us breath so we can live.  He always gave us choices.  He also showed us how much He loves us by giving us His Son, Jesus Christ.  Through Jesus, God gave us good things to do.  Jobs he wants us to accomplish.  Good works. Why does God loves us so?  We are His children and He made us what we are.  It took me a long time to understand that each of us are God’s gift to our parents.  And just as our parents love us, God loves us even more for God is Love and all that is good. God has made us what we are. In Christ Jesus, God made us to do good works, which God planned in advance for us to live our lives doing. Ephesians 4:10
