MAKE AN ACTIVE EFFORT TO BE KIND

“Do not rejoice when your enemy falls, And do not let your heart be glad when he stumbles;”  Proverbs 24:27 (NKJV)

 

God’s intention is to display good will toward all men.  He takes no pleasure in the calamity of the wicked, but continually desires for even the most wicked person to turn from his/her wicked ways so that he/she can live a life of blessings.

 

We are to extend good will to those who have hurt us and we’re to pray for them to be helped and blessed of the Lord.  Goodwill means more than just forgiving them and refusing to be bitter or wishing people harm.  It’s the right thing to do.

 

When we have goodwill toward someone, we make a choice to behave kindly toward them.  We willfully choose to take satisfaction and delight in seeing them blessed.  Love is the presence of goodness, kindness, and blessing.

Application For The Day:

God expects us to be courteous, kind, and express goodwill towards others – even our enemies.  I make a conscious decision today to always show goodwill towards people.

Prayer For The Day:

Father God, I am thankful that You made me who I am.  I am thankful that I do not rejoice when my enemy falls, and that I do not let my heart be glad when he stumbles; that You already showed me how to be kind to others.  With your strength I will continue in these things, in Jesus’ Name.

    “Do all the good you can
    Whenever you can
    In every way you can
    Every where you can
    For everyone you can
    Until you cannot anymore”

    Dear Lord, I will be kind to all, even to those who hurt me, because that is Your will.

    This one really touch me. My Dad went to Glory 3 months ago. He was Married and has been married since I was 7 but has been together since I was 5 . Well two days after we laid our Father to rest she went and told the courts that my Father Never had any Children (He has Two Daughters) and no siblings or any family and that she was his only living soul he had , she sold Two homes the my Father had bought one for my sister to always have a place to live and one so that his older brother to always have somewhere to live. She sold them not even 2 months later. She also sold one of his trucks, My disinter and I was very Hurt and Angry. And only because of God we have calmed down and we have hired a Lawyer. Everything that we have done and put in place has been nothing but God . So to Read this …Wow Thanks Pastor Gregory for allowing God to Use You
