January 9

My husband and I are landlords and must deal with housing many different personalities. Occasionally, we will have someone want to break their lease for various reasons; we have rules about that in our lease. Though we have a binding contract with them that is very strict concerning the consequences of breaking a lease, we still have compassion for others. Here lies the problem: if they have been antagonistic, hateful, or are downright mean, there's not much chance our hearts will feel compassion for them. However, if they've always been respectful and kind, there is the probability that they won't face legal or financial repercussions. Imagine what The Lord might do for you if you blessed Him with thankfulness and approached Him with kindness. Don't be demanding or harsh, a loving heart will go a long way with God and He may be more willing to extend His grace to you.

Bless the LORD, O my soul, and all that is within me, bless his holy name! Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits. Psalms 103:1-2
