Manna For Today: Friday, September 16, 2016
God is less interested in what we do than He is in why we do it. That is to say, God is more concerned about our character than our accomplishments. The most important things in our lives are often easily neglected for what we are influenced to believe are the urgent things in life.
Note the following character building admonitions:
1. Learning to love is the single most important accomplishment you can have.
I Thessalonians 3:12 – And may the Lord make your love for one another and for all people grow and overflow, just as our love for you overflows.
2. Build people first.
I Thessalonians 5:11 – So encourage each other and build each other up, just as you are already doing.
3. Peace is the womb of success.
I Thessalonians 5:13b – …and live peacefully with each other.
4. Don’t major in minors.
I Thessalonians 5:15 – See that no one pays back evil for evil, but always try to do good to each other and to all people.
Peace and blessings!
