Jesus did not come to cajole or manipulate people. He did not come to debate or lead by forceful personality. He never tried to gather a crowd or build an organization. He never marketed himself or developed his “brand”. Instead, he exemplified this quality that we all need.
- rejoice in the Lord always.
- don’t be anxious about anything.
- present your requests to God.
- think on that which is noble and true.
Put this on your radar this week.
- When someone brings a problem, don’t be defensive.
- Listen better.
- Be a more gentle driver on the road this week.
- Be present in a conversation instead of being pre-occupied.
- Ask someone about their family this week.
- Allow compassion to interrupt your schedule this week.
- Pray with someone who is hurting
