                                      MORNING PRAYER

                                                        Thank You for this new morning and the 
                                                   privilege of beginning the day with You. As
                                                   today unfolds, give me wisdom to handle 
                                                   every situation I encounter. Let my speech be
                                                   seasoned with grace and my thoughts pleasing 
                                                   to You. I am grateful to know that regardless
                                                   of where this day takes me, You will be right
                                                   here with me. There is no shortage of good
                                                   things in Your presence. 

                                                       Help me to live with my mind set on things
                                                    above so that Your light would shine in my
                                                    life and Your name would be glorified.

                                                       O satisfy us in the morning with Your
                                                    lovingkindness, that we may sing for joy and
                                                   be glad all our days.

                                                                                                  -Psalm 90:14

Adopting A Nurturing Attitude

"We were gentle among you,
just as a mother cherishes
her own children."
--1 Thessalonians 2:7

The apostle Paul adopted a nurturing attitude when teaching people. He knew believers needed the "milk of the Word" for spiritual growth 
(1 Peter 2:2).

But he also gave much special attention to the concerns of those believers that he cared for. "We dealt with each of you as a father deals with his own children," Paul said, "encouraging, comforting and urging you to live lives worthy of God" (1 Thessalonians 2:11-12 NIV).

Oh beloved, as we serve each other, may we serve with the tender loving care of our Savior, encouraging and comforting each other in our spiritual growth and journey (Hebrews 10:24).

Dear Lord, help me to be sensitive and caring as I serve others. Help me to love others tenderly as You so tenderly love and care for me. Amen.

God pours His love into our hearts to flow out to other's lives.

     Have a Jesus filled Sunday.
