Daily Scripture:

“May the God who gives endurance and encouragement give you the same attitude of mind toward each other that Christ Jesus had, so that with one mind and one voice you may glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.” (Romans 15:5-6)

Daily Reflection:

We all need that at the moment through this Coronavirus lock-down………endurance and encouragement! God gave it to Jesus to persevere through all the things he went through in life; God will give it to you too…..if you ask. It is about coming to God in prayer once again. Prayer is our relationship with our creator God right now. With that endurance and that encouragement when things are tough, we are told we will have the same attitude of mind as Jesus had towards one another. And what was that? He cared about everyone; he loved everyone; he put others before himself. Ironically, it is when we start thinking of others and caring for them that the problems we think we have seem to be lifted…..which is encouraging for us!
