Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others.
One other thing I am striving for is not talking bad about my hubby. Isn't it so common that we will get together (especially us ladies) and complain about our spouses. Nope, not me, not no more. I am pouring over Ephesians through this:
Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for building up, as fits the occasion, that it may give grace to those who hear. And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. Let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor and slander be put away from you, along with all malice. Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you.
Forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you!!! WOW! We need to live by that in all of our interactions right?! Mantra for the month for sure!
What I want you take away from today is this; whether your single, engaged, married or divorced it's still a concept across the board of being selfless, loving, forgiving and kind. These are the Christ like qualities we are expected (and equipped for) to up hold in our day in and day outs. There is no perfection in this house by any means, I fly off the handle, I speak un kind and I have unkind thoughts. But we are striving to treat each other with the love that Christ so willingly gives us when we put down our nets, shake off our old clothes and follow him.
Friends, love each other, be a light for the Lord and seek him in all that you do. You are Beautifully and Wonderfully Made in His image!
