CAN’T WE ALL JUST GET ALONG?

10 12 2011

Is this possible?  At this time of the year when our thoughts are about others, the greatest gifts we can give are love, help and understanding to those around us. I believe in Romans 12:9-19. (The Message Translation) we have the words which will enable us to give these priceless gifts.  Instead of using my words, I want to quote just as they are written in the passage.

“Love from the center of who you are, dont fake it.  Run for dear life from evil, hold on for dear life to good.  Be good friends who love deeply, practice playing second fiddle.  Don’t burn out; keep yourselves fueled and aflame.  Be alert servants of the Master, cheerfully expectant.  Don’t quit in hard times; pray all the harder.  Help needy Christians, be inventive in hospitality.  Bless your enemies; no cursing under your breath.  Laugh with your happy friends when they’re happy, share tears when they’re down.  Get along with each other; don’t be stuck-up.  Make friends with nobodies; don’t be the great somebody.  Don’t hit back, discover beauty in everyone.  If you’ve got it in you, get along with everybody.  Don’t insist on getting even; that’s not for you to do.  I’ll do the judging, says God.  I’ll take care of it.”

What relationships do you have to mend?  Husband, wife, parent, sister, brother, neighbor, friend–you name it!  Let’s take the challenge written about above.  God commands us to love and care for one another as He loves and cares for us. ”
