Be Devoted to One Another

Loved seeing this uncle-niece team bond!

July 11
Two attributes which make us more attractive as members of the Body of Christ are warm friendliness and generous love. These qualities make me think of Winnie the Pooh! 

These two gifts, friendliness and love, are totally free to give away and they are such a joy to receive.

“Friends love through all kinds of weather, and families stick together in all kinds of trouble.”
Proverbs 17:17

“Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends.”  John 15:13

“Offer hospitality to one another without grumbling.” 1 Peter 4:9

“Be devoted to one another in love.  Honor one another above yourselves.”  Romans 12:10

“Therefore encourage one another and build each other up…”             1 Thessalonians 5:11

Friends in the faith are fabulous and help us flourish in life!
Yesterday's Biblegateway verse brought a smile to my face as I thought of my brothers and sisters in the faith.

Every time you cross my mind, I break out in exclamations of thanks to God. Each exclamation is a trigger to prayer. I find myself praying for you with a glad heart. I am so pleased that you have continued on in this with us, believing and proclaiming God’s Message, from the day you heard it right up to the present. There has never been the slightest doubt in my mind that the God who started this great work in you would keep at it and bring it to a flourishing finish on the very day Christ Jesus appears.  Philippians 1:6 MSG
