In life, we are given opportunities to have fun and build friendships with each other. Friendship is important. They are how we all feel accepted and loved by others who may not be related to us. Sometimes it’s wonderful to have an ear that may not be as closely connected as family. In particular, God cannot be seen or touched in any physical way. Consider the qualities that strengthen your friendship, such as time, communication, honesty, and loyalty. Friendship with God includes these same qualities. If we really want to know God better, listen to Him, be faithful to Him, and love Him, we can experience the joy of friendship with God. How can we demonstrate the qualities of good friendship in our relationship with God?
Romans 5:11 — Because our Lord Jesus Christ has made us friends with God, we can rejoice in our wonderful new relationship with God.
Small acts of kindness can make a big difference in our lives. Showing kindness to others is not difficult, and acts of kindness always seem to perpetuate more goodwill from people. It rises by lifting)”. Kindness is ultimately a way of uplifting others and uplifting yourself. God rewards kindness because it demonstrates the highest Christian quality: unconditional love. Real kindness isn’t just an act, it’s a way of life. You can show kindness in small things or words until you can be truly kind in any situation. Kindness is not motivated by reward, but we will be rewarded for our kindness. What little kindness can we show someone today? How can we show kindness to others?
Matthew 10:42 — Give one of my least followers a glass of cold water and they will surely be rewarded.
Love is the greatest of all human qualities and an attribute of God Himself. Love involves selfless service to others. Faith is the foundation and content of God’s message. Hope is attitude and focus. But love is action. Love proves that our faith and hope are real. Who can we show kindness to today?
1 Corinthians 13:4-7, 13 — Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous, boastful, proud or disrespectful. It doesn’t claim its own method. No irritation and no record of being treated unfairly. Instead of rejoicing in injustice, we rejoice whenever truth wins. Love never gives up, never loses Faith, always hopeful, endures all circumstances… Three things last forever – Faith, Hope and Love – and the greatest of these is love
Joy comes from simple and natural things. Fog on the meadows, sunlight on the leaves, moon paths on the water. Finally, let us all LIVE, LOVE, and LAUGH without limits! We rise by lifting others!
