Morning Devotional


1 Thessalonians 5:11

“Wherefore comfort yourselves together, and edify one another, even as also ye do.”



As God's children we are taught to love one another and to show compassion on our brothers and sisters in Christ. Especially when they are going through trials and persecutions. Just as we ourselves desire compassion from others when we are suffering so should we have a desire to be the same to others.

I wonder sometimes if we forget we are family? Christ taught us we are to be closer to our spiritual family than we are our earthly family. But are we? As I have stated many times and as God's Word commands, we must follow Christ in all parts of our life. And yes, that includes in our love for the Saints.

Remember, the world is watching. We may not always see them watching but they are watching. They watch to see how we treat our brothers and sisters in Christ. They watch how we walk and how we talk and how we conduct ourselves in private and in public. And when the opportunity arises they will point out our faults and try to ruin our witness for Christ. But is it the world that ruins our witness? Or is it we ourselves?

When we see a brother or sister suffering, whether it is physical, mental, or spiritual, drop them a note to show you care and are praying for them. Give them a call or go by and visit with them. Show compassion for your family. Be thankful to God you are part of His family.



Praise ye the Lord!!!
