Philippians 2:14-15 “Do all things without murmuring or disputing. 15 That ye maybe blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke and perverse nation among whom YE SHINE AS LIGHTS OF THE WORLD!!!
In order to SHINE we need to drop the grumbling and complaining.
Why is it so easy to enter into seeing what is wrong? When raising my children I was told to “catch them doing what is right and praise them for it”. I tried this technique. I had to intentionally focus on the positive, because it was easier for me to focus on the negative. Children respond to attention. They will respond to negative or positive reinforcement. All of us do the same. We have to intentionally set the tone in order to SHINE!
Today, be encouraged to;
1. Stop the grumbling and complaining.
2. See what is right
3. Be thankful
As Christians we want to win souls for Christ. In order to do this we have to have something people want. The joy of Jesus is consistent no matter what we have to gripe about. Yes, in this world there is pain. In order to SHINE, give Jesus your pain and TRUST in His promises.
Proverbs 23:7 “ As a man thinketh in his heart, so shall he be.”
Philippians 4:8 “ Finally Brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.
Be fit, be blessed and SHINE!
