reflection & practice(Day 3 of 6. Need to start at the beginning? Day 1)

These are our three concepts to consider and practice this week.

ASSUME GOOD – Most folk are good-hearted.
SACRIFICE FOR OTHERS – It’s a Kingdom thing.
SPEAK BLESSINGS – Don’t mix them in with cursing!

Where will you focus today?

I am finding that many people are not at their best because they are stressed and exhausted. They don’t have the energy to be thoughtful and intentional. They may be quite good-hearted, but the busyness is an energy stealer.

It’s kind of a sad state of affairs in our culture, but something I am trying to be more aware of.

When it comes to my marriage, I am looking for ways to reduce stress in my home (make life simple and easy) and in our overall relationship (face and deal with the little foxes).

In my friendships, I am trying to be more understanding and I’m looking for ways to be helpful.

Can you see past the tired and busy to others’ good-heartedness?

It’s pretty hot where I live (and we have forest fire concerns). I know others are struggling with the summer heat and/or hurricanes on the horizon.

Let’s pause a moment and pray for everyone’s safety and sanity. Stay safe and drink plenty of water. Keep your animals cool too!
