1 Peter 4:12 “Dear friends, do not be surprised at the fiery ordeal that has come on you to test you, as though something strange were happening to you.”
🔴 Climate Control
- What kind of climate are you generating for the people you are responsible for serving?
The climate of any situation often is in direct relation to productivity.
When in a friendly, comfortable, clean, and inviting space, how do you feel in that environment?
Compare that atmosphere with one of tension, hostility.
There is an apparent difference! Now think, what can I do to make either of the two spaces better? No matter how good or bad the situation, we can always make strides to improve.
While we can’t change the weather, we can certainly change our attitude about it and perhaps make the day better for others. As believers, we are to let our light shine in the darkness. We have become heirs to our Creator God. We have His Spirit within us to create until better becomes best and give God the glory for the inspiration that He has given us.
Let us Pray: “Lord Jesus, please instill in each of us to use whatever gift you have given us to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms. If anyone speaks, that we should do so as one who speaks the very words of God. If anyone serves, we should do so with the strength God provides, so that in all things, God may be praised through Jesus Christ. To Him be the glory and the power forever and ever. Thank you, Lord Jesus Amen.”
