Build Up Rather Than Tear Down - Spiritual Growth Encouragement Series


Bible Verses: Ephesians 4:32 - 5:2

"Instead, be kind to each other, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, just as God through Christ has forgiven you. Imitate God, therefore, in everything you do, because you are his dear children. Live a life filled with love, following the example of Christ. He loved us and offered himself as a sacrifice for us, a pleasing aroma to God."

Reflect and Respond:

How can you imitate God today and build others up for His sake?


Father, I want to walk in love today - as Christ did for me. Please open my eyes to how I might build others up and encourage them, for Your sake. I pray this in Jesus' name. Amen.

Timely! Unkind words/actions do cause pain/hurt whether done knowingly or unknowingly. Even more so, when done by family and friends. This can result in broken relationships and unforgiveness. I, too, fall short in doing this.

Lord, thank You for loving me unconditionally. Help me to love others as You have commanded, and forgive me for those times when I didn't. Live, love and work through me always.
