Bible Verses: Galatians 5:14-15

"For the whole law can be summed up in this one command: 'Love your neighbor as yourself.' But if you are always biting and devouring one another, watch out! Beware of destroying one another."

Reflect and Respond:

How can you use your words to build up rather than tear down today?


Father, help me to be mindful of my thoughts today. Help them be thoughts that are loving, not spiteful or bitter. And let my words be the same. Amen.

I've been persecuted so many times, I've never had those opportunities to properly do that in my life.
Keep at it! Check out Romans 5:3-5 as well! I'm praying for you!
In order to love others well we must first love ourselves. If you don’t love yourself today, be reminded that Jesus loves you, he died for you. He knows you are worthy.
Thanks Mark! This is a great reminder.
As a Christ follower, remember do the simple; "You shall love your neighbor as yourself." But if you do not love your neighbor, do harm be careful that you are not be consumed by one another.
What a great reminder. This one fits me perfectly today and I got it just in time to change something. Thank you!
I'm new here, but your message Mark really hit home! I live with an individual I don't get along with, he's rude, mean, and downright self orientated I've prayed for him but it seems God's ignoring me... I know He's not but now I guess I must pray for patience even harder... it's not like God'll hear me better if I shout but I'm becoming exhausted!
Hi thank you for sharing that is a very good advice
Amen! What a great verse and reminder. Thanks Mark!
Amen! Timely reminder to 'treat others the way we want to be treated' in our interactions. Lord, help me today to be intentional and thoughtful in showing others love and kindness. Help me to 'build up' and 'tear down'. Use me to be a blessing!
