Attributes of God

A Good Word

AnxietyAlmost everyone has things they are anxious about, or challenges in their lives that weigh on them.  Maybe the person driving slowly in front of you just got some bad news – a health issue, or a loved one in trouble.  Maybe the person who refuses to move when you ask to pass in a narrow passage doesn’t respond because they are deaf.  We can never know what a stranger is going through, and I try to remember that when I encounter such a situation.  We can get so involved in our own lives that we forget to pay attention to those around us.

This scripture in Proverbs reminds me not only to be more understanding, but to speak out encouragement.  Perhaps a word of encouragement – a good word – is exactly what that person needs to hear in a moment of distress or dejection.  If we see a person struggling then help them; but the prerequisite of that is that we observe others – that we get out of our own isolated little bubbles and reach out to those around us with our hearts, hands, and words.

 

 

On Moving the World

Romans 12:2 (NIV)

“Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is – his good, pleasing and perfect will.”
1 Corinthians 3:19 (NIV)
“For the wisdom of this world is foolishness in God’s sight. As it is written: ‘He catches the wise in their craftiness’.”
