“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Colossians 4:5-6

TODAY’S WORD…

.

Be wise in the way you act toward those who are not believers,

making good use of every opportunity you have.

Your speech should always be pleasant and interesting,

and you should know how to give the right answer to everyone.

.

– Colossians 4:5-6 (GNT)

REFLECTION…

.

When we love other people,

we will want to share with them the best thing we have – the Lord.

We must share what we have found – with wisdom

and through following the leading of the Spirit.

It cannot be emphasized enough

how important it is to be careful in what we say to those who don’t really know Christ

and how to express it…through our attitude, words and deeds.

.

We must seize and use every opportunity

and we must show kindness, care, and control,

through our example and friendship, and in the way we use our speech.

We should help others discover the wonder of the faith, the marvel of God’s love.

.

Christian living is perfectly compatible with everyday life and normal human involvements.

Friendliness, infectious cheerfulness and good humour are a reflection of the inner peace

which comes from the grace of God and from the awareness that He is our Father.

These virtues make life more pleasant for everyone

and do much to attract people to Christ and His Gospel of Love.

PRAYER…

.

Open my eyes Lord, that I may see those people which You place in my path to bless,

and Lord fill me with a holy determination to spread Your Good News.

.

Holy Spirit, I cannot give from what I do not have,

so help me know Jesus better and filled with all that I need

to show others, through my words and my deeds,

the wonders of the Father’s mighty love for each and every one of us.

.

Amen.
