In the afternoon and evening I read some, relaxed, and was on my computer!
Verse of the day:
Proverbs 11:25 "A generous man will prosper; he who refreshes others will himself be refreshed."
I really like this verse a lot! The first part of it talks about a generous person. If you sit back and think about it, none of us really own anything that we have. All of our material possessions are the Lord's!! I encourage you to reach out to someone in need, and help them. You never know what a couple dollars or a couple hours given will do!!
The second part of the verse I also like! When we "refresh" others then we will become "refreshed". Do you want to "refresh" others, or are you more worried about taking care of yourself! You never know what a kind word, email, text, phone call, etc. might do for someone! I know I always feel "refreshed" when the Lord works through me to be able to encourage or uplift someone. We have a prime example to follow...Jesus! When He died on the cross for our sins, He gave each and every one of us the opportunity to be "refreshed"!!
Are you "refreshing" to those you come in contact with on a day to day basis?
Thank you Lord for being the ultimate example for us to follow. Open up our eyes to people who are in need, and people who need to be "refreshed"!!
Have a great night one and all :)
