Pass the Pearl: How to Treat Other's
Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you. Luke6-27
These actions are powerful! Reading them seems so simple, but actually picking these actions up and walking them out can be difficult, but accomplished. Sometimes life can be sour and it is important to not let bitterness get inside you. Instead take sour lemons and make some lemonade! Well, in our case Pink Lemonade! How do you make pink lemonade? The process starts with you heart. It is in our heart that we hold and carry the issues and concerns of life. All of our issues, insecurities, past hurts and rejections things that we think are hidden all tuck away nice and neat store up in our heart. Often these issues become the breading ground for offense and unforgiveness layer upon layer which ultimately become a door blocker of seeing God flow through our lives freely. We constantly have to be open and pray for God to renew our spirits and gives us the discernment to examine our hearts daily. Then we can take actions to enter into His rest and forgive the unforgivable and love the unlovable. Once you have opened up your heart to forgive you can pass it on! Take the opportunity to develop you love walk cultivating kindness, and increasing your prayer life. These are the fruits of the spirits and are released in adversity while under pressure. Just like those lemons, God is getting the juice out of you! Remember these instructions: You are the lemon, God has you in his hand. Life is the pressure that He uses to get the best and worst out of you. Add the fruits of the spirits, which is water to your soul, and 3 tablespoon of prayer for sweetness. Combine all ingrediants and you will have a sweet receipe for a successful life.
