2 Corinthians 13:11

"Be joyful. Grow to maturity. Encourage each other. Live in harmony and peace. Then the God of love and peace will be with you." 


When you read all of these great things above, they are impossible to live out on our own. God's love and peace lives in us as we share it with those around us. You are not meant to do life alone today. Let's take a moment to live out one of these values today.


Lord, help me to see the needs of the people around me. Help us to be people of encouragement, people that bring peace even in the midst of tension, and help us to life out a spirit of joy. Not because everything in life is great all of the time, but because you are good all of the time.
