I had a former boss who always said, “Be kind to everyone because everyone’s having a hard time.”
And, no wonder. Scripture tells us that, in this world, there would be trials and suffering. Just in our little corner of the world, we have encountered death and pain in recent months. It would be overwhelming, indeed, to focus only on those things. Perhaps that’s why Paul tells us to focus on things above.
Jesus promises plenty for those who are poor, joy for those who mourn, satisfaction for those who hunger and a seat at the table for those who have been excluded and rejected because of Him
It doesn’t end here, friends. There is so much goodness and glory awaiting those who love the Lord.
He who promised is faithful (Hebrews 10:23.)
