Encouragement

Are You Up For The Challenge?

Why is it easier for us to find flaws in others than for us to call out their strengths? Why is it that we can so easily dish out harsh criticisms but find ourselves falling short with words of loving concern? Why is it that we can effortlessly tear down but we struggle to build up? We have been called by God to LOVE, so why is it so hard to do sometimes? We’ve all done it unfortunately…sometimes before we even realize that our sinful flesh has taken over our thoughts or words. It might be difficult to admit, but the way we treat others speaks volumes about the position of OUR OWN hearts. OUCH…I stepped on my OWN toes there too. 😉 “With the tongue we praise our Lord and Father, and with it we curse human beings, who have been made in God’s likeness. Out of the same mouth come praise and cursing. My brothers and sisters, this should not be.” JAMES 3:9-10 Every day we have to make a choice…are we going to be a BUILDER or a DESTROYER? Are we going to use our words to ENCOURAGE and UPLIFT others (THESSALONIANS 5:11) or allow our words to DISCOURAGE and HURT them? I want to be a BUILDER!Today, I challenge you! I challenge YOU to BUILD TOO! Extend the same GRACE and LOVE to others that God so willingly extends to you. BUILD SOMEONE UP TODAY! GOD LOVES YOU and I DO TOO! ❤
