Shaped by God - Thursday, March 9 - Lenten Devotional 2017

Shaped by God
Thursday, March 9

Who is wise and understanding among you? Let him show it by his good life, by deeds done in the humility that comes from wisdom. Peacemakers who sow in peace raise a harvest of righteousness. - James 2:13, 18

We feel that with divisiveness running rampant in our country today, we need to remember inclusiveness in our communities and the world throughout our daily lives. Kindness to every life we touch, is more important today for those who struggle, have different cultures, religions, and beliefs. We pray for peace and it starts with us, each day. Our RPC mission outreach continues to be critical at this time.

Little things like a smile or holding a door open for those who are different from us, can warm a heart and create good will. We hope you will make a difference in someone's lives, not just during the Lenten Season, but every chance you get.

Jesus taught us this.

Thank you, God, for sending your son, Jesus, to teach us that we are all God's children and remind us to value each life, no matter how different they may seem to us. Pray for world peace and greater wisdom for our world leaders. Amen.
