1 Thessalonians 2:6-8 We didn’t ask for special treatment from people—not from you or from others— although we could have thrown our weight around as Christ’s apostles. Instead, we were gentle with you like a nursing mother caring for her own children. We were glad to share not only God’s good news with you but also our very lives because we cared for you so much.
Morning Prayer: God, help me be humble. I need not arrive like a clanging cymbal or have a face like the shining sun to bring people to You. You meet me where I am and I, in turn, meet others where they are on their journey toward fullness in You. May I be gentle with other people. May I share my life and all the blessings You have given me with the people around me. Let me show care and concern for others in all that I do, and move forward with a servant attitude. May it be so.
Morning Focus: For a moment, switch from self-centered to other-centered, and vice versa. How do the switches change your outlook?
