How We Speak and Act

How we speak about others says more about us than them.  Every word we speak reveals a little bit more about the state of our soul.  How we treat others also show where your heart is and what is really going on in your spiritual life.  In 1 John 2, we see this addressed-

9 Anyone who claims to be in the light but hates a brother or sister is still in the darkness. 10 Anyone who loves their brother and sister lives in the light, and there is nothing in them to make them stumble. 11 But anyone who hates a brother or sister is in the darkness and walks around in the darkness. They do not know where they are going, because the darkness has blinded them.

Do you live in the light?  Do you hate your brother or sister in Christ?  I know we sometimes become frustrated with people, but c'mon, I do not understand the level of hated some have for fellow Christians or pastors.  Yes there are disagreements, but sadly I sometimes feel that Christians are our own worst enemy.  We don't need the prince of darkness working against us, we are doing fine on our own.

So I implore you and I pray that you will choose to walk in the light.  Be a light in the darkness for all that you encounter.  Let God's grace flow through your words, thoughts and deeds freely.  Let us fill heaven with songs of joy and praise!  Let your light shine!!!
Go in peace and go with God.
