this passage in Romans is amazing.
just incredibly convicting and encouraging.
when you are a ministry wife, you have to really focus on the way that you treat people...without thinking of the way that other people have treated you.
it's about being real. and genuine. and transparent.
for one reason:
you are serving Jesus.
we have to remember who we are serving.
He is ultimately in control and will take care of everything in His way and His time.
so if you are struggling with relationship issues today...read this passage.
read it slow.
let it sink in and change you.
Don’t just pretend to love others. Really love them. Hate what is wrong. Hold tightly to what is good. Love each other with genuine affection,and take delight in honoring each other. Never be lazy, but work hard and serve the Lord enthusiastically. Rejoice in our confident hope. Be patient in trouble, and keep on praying. When God’s people are in need, be ready to help them. Always be eager to practice hospitality.
Bless those who persecute you. Don’t curse them; pray that God will bless them. Be happy with those who are happy, and weep with those who weep. Live in harmony with each other. Don’t be too proud to enjoy the company of ordinary people. And don’t think you know it all!
