In life when I stumble across something negative or ugly that was said about me or my family behind my back, I normally immediately text, call or message the person and offer encouragement or help with whatever they are busy with. I pray that my children learn to do the same. So much that is wrong with this world is because people are so eagerly offended! What someone says about me can't change my heart, the way Ben or my children see me, or my relationship with God, really it says more about them and their heart than it does mine, so my best bet is to show love and kindness. Over the years the task has become increasingly easier! Today I came across something and felt excited! I'll get to encourage them today! If you purpose in your heart to truly show the love of Christ the trajectory of your life changes, it seems small at first but years down the road you will find that something that should feel offensive will actually make you feel excited for a chance to minister to someone and nurture a meaningful relationship. What a blessing?! What a beautiful blessing to be called to love as Christ does!! Nothing shows satan who is boss quite like turning something that was meant for evil into something good! I pray that this encourages someone!
