Continued from page 1
By responding in humility, like Jesus would, to those that wrong us, we grow in GODLINESS. That is, we're more and more like Jesus and God.
That humility and godliness will cause us to be alert and begin to spot others who have been hurt. Intuitively we'll spot them, and know how to help them better. So that suffering we have from false accusations enriches us after all, with KINDNESS.
Now we'll be trying to guide these weaker, hurting friends through these very steps to maturity, meaning that we are now reproducing ourselves, which is true LOVE and essence of God Himself.
Have you reached maturity in your character development? Or are you stuck at one of earlier stages? Sometimes, just seeing where you are, relative to where you are headed, can be a big help to get you moving forward again.
Let your light shine ever brighter and brighter!
