Today's Verse: Philemon 1:25

Saturday, January 25, 2020

The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit.
— Philemon 1:25

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

Have you noticed how words of blessing are in such short supply? There is something about our fallen state that makes sarcasm and ridicule easier to use than blessing. But, in God's family, words are always to be used for the benefit and blessing of others. What simpler or kinder words do we need to use to bless others than these words Paul sent to Philemon? Let's find a way to say them ... and say them again ... and again ...

My Prayer...

Loving Father, you have blessed me so much with your grace. Please use me to be a blessing to everyone I meet today. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
