Be a Rescuer

“Do not seek revenge or bear a grudge against one of your people, but love your neighbor as yourself. I am the Lord.”  Leviticus 19:18


Thought

Hanging on to bitterness and keeping alive grudges is consuming work. It leaves little energy for blessing others, praising God, or enjoying life. The only way to get over a bitter heart toward others is to actively love and serve them in ways that bless their lives. If we can’t do this because it’s hard to feel like it is the right thing to do, we do it because we know God and want to please him!

Prayer

Father of light, love and mercy, please remove from my heart any cynicism or delight in seeing others around me fall. Instead, help me to be a rescuer rather than a neglector. I want your grace to be seen in my friendships. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
