Yesterday was one of those days where my thoughts got the best of me. People can be disloyal, think only of themselves, and forget how much you’ve helped them in the past. Then, I had to think about whether I had done the same to others. Has anyone helped me for free, and when I’ve needed to pay for their type of service, did I forget about them? I never want to be that person. But aren’t we all like that? God has given us everything we need to live in this world ruled by the devil, yet we dismiss him and try to handle everything ourselves. The Word of God is free and full of life-giving advice, yet few people read it. Jesus gave his life for us, but are we loyal to him by obeying his word? We cannot always count on people, but we can always rely on Jesus. I will keep doing what I do for others and forget how they’ve treated me, and remember everything God has done for me. That’s all that matters anyway. So whatever you wish that others would do to you, do also to them.
Although he was a son, he learned obedience through what he suffered. Hebrews 5:8
