Give each other more honor than you give yourself – Romans 12:10


Romans 12:10 Love each other in a way that makes you feel close like brothers and sisters. And give each other more honor than you give yourself. 


I've been thinking about how harsh we can be with people around us whether it’s folks who work with us, neighbors, workers at the stores we go to, and especially with people who are closest to us.

It’s like we forget that we are forgiven and that God’s grace doesn’t discriminate based on the level of sin we’ve committed. 

Sin is going to catch up with us … believe it.  No one is immune.

Our “self-honor” doesn't allow us to see what deep burdens or hang ups others deal with…

Next time we start to criticize or show how witty we can be, we should consider honoring the other person more than ourselves. It just may change the words from our mouths and the thoughts of our hearts.

I’m making an effort to be kinder. I am.

Psalm 92:
12 Good people will prosper

    like the cedars of Lebanon.
13 They will take root
in your house, LORD God,
    and they will do well.
14 They will be like trees
that stay healthy and fruitful,

15 And they will say about you,
“The LORD always does right! God is our mighty rock.”

Human life no longer matters

I'm deeply troubled and you should be, too. 

The sanctity of human life no longer matters. I'm outraged at the killing of yet another black man - two in one day - by police in this country. This is terrorism aimed at people of color. It is NOT acceptable - we are ALL created in God's image. 
Christians can't be quiet - no matter your color.
Philando Castille was shot and killed by police as he reached for his license while his girlfriend and child watched. The video making the rounds should make you cry - it could be your husband, son or brother!!

Stop and pray for his family and friends. Pray for Alton Sterling's family. Mr. Sterling was killed by police earlier in the day in Baton Rouge. 
This madness must stop. This is NOT okay. 
Genesis 1:27 So God did just that. He created humanity in His image, created them male and female.
