Hebrews 10:24 And let us consider how we may spur one another on to love and good deeds
So, let’s consider this for a moment. What spurs you on to love and good deeds? So many of us lean towards the negative that it might be easier to start from the opposite end; what deters you from love and good deeds? Some of my responses are: judgmental attitudes; criticism and its cousin sarcasm; blaming; not listening; selfishness. These are all buzzkills for me. So let’s flip them: Open attitudes, appreciation and its cousin compliment, graciousness, attentiveness, selflessness. I’d sign up for a group that did these things. As you give thanks this Thursday maybe you can make your own list of ways to spur one another on to love and good deeds for the sake of Christ. And may God in you make your little corner of the world a haven of such behavior. Then it will be a Happy Thanksgiving.
