Daily Scripture

Finally, all of you, have unity of spirit, sympathy, love for one another, a tender heart, and a humble mind. Do not repay evil for evil or abuse for abuse; but, on the contrary, repay with a blessing. It is for this that you were called—that you might inherit a blessing. (1 Peter 3:8)

Daily Reflection

O that we could all live like this, with these characteristics – these cares for one another – as a church, as a community, and within our own families. God longs for the day when humanity will do this. That we have the same goals and all work towards them. That we are responsive to the needs of others – with willing hearts. That we see and treat everyone the same way we wish to be seen and treated. That we are sensitive and caring towards others. That we encourage one another and rejoice in the success of others.

Some of these things we do some of the time; God is waiting for it to be the norm for all people all of the time. He has even given us an example of how to live like this. In addition, God is waiting to bless us!

Revd David
