🔴 How’s Your P.M.A?
A Devotional written by Diana L.W. Coleman for Our Given Purpose®
Bible Reading: 1 John 3:1-10, 1 John 4:7-21, Micah 6:6-8
By this, it is evident who are the children of God, and who are the children of the devil: whoever does not practice righteousness is not of God, nor is the one who does not love his brother.
🔴 Your Positive Mental Attitude! You’ve got to be kidding! Have you seen the news lately? Do you not know that we are in one of the worst pandemics ever?
For example, the endemic divide within the human race: the white and the brown people? There is a pandemic of militant groups, Racism, Bigotry, Hatred in the world. The heart of the Christian community is suffering. Appealing to humanity through organizations such as Black Lives Matter, Race Forward, Innocence Project, Faith in Action, The Arc, and Futures Without Violence are met with disapproving eye rolls. Have you seen, witnessed, or been subjected to the systematic injustice prevalent throughout the world?
Well! … Wait before you tell me what I can do with my Positive Mental Attitude; allow me to share this with you. “God is love. Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God; and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God.” 1 John 4:7.
Reading God’s Word further, we are informed that, “The one who does not love does not know God for God is love.” 1 John 4:8. Before we got to these instructions, we read in 1 John 3:10; “By this, the children of God and the children of the devil are obvious: anyone who does not practice righteousness is not of God, nor the one who does not love his brother.”
God speaks to us of what He requires in Micah 6:8 – “He has told you, O man, what is good; And what does the Lord require of you But to do justice, to love kindness and to walk humbly with your God?”
Our positivity does not come from us, but our relationship and being a follower of Jesus Christ and knowing that with Him are winners!
God always wins.
Have you decided to become a follower of God through His Son, Jesus Christ?
Will you pray and ask Him to receive you on His Team?
Regardless of the state of the world, your life, or the governments’, God will have the final say! Knowing this changes one’s frowns (negatives) into smiles (positives). Go NOW! GET YOUR P.M.A! YOU’LL BE GLAD YOU DID!!!
