DAILY READINGS: Judges 16; Isaiah 35; 1 Corinthians 13

Put on therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved...kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering. Colossians:3:16

An unsolicited email contained a simple yet thought provoking message. It just said “Live simply, love generously, care deeply, speak kindly and be kinder than necessary, for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle.” When I thought on this, I realized that the only template for such sentiments could be the Lord Jesus. These characteristics were exhibited consistently by the Lord in His earthly sojourn. It is incumbent on believers to seek to emulate these traits, so that others may be helped, blessed and encouraged. —Brian Powlesland

O lend a hand to help, haste to speak a word of cheer, And gloomy clouds will brighten, when the day is drear.
