The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit.

Philemon 1:25

Thoughts on Today’s Verse…

Have you noticed how words of blessing are in such short supply these days? There is something about our fallen state that makes sarcasm and ridicule easier to use than sharing a heartfelt Christian blessing. But, in God’s family, words are always to be used for the benefit and blessing of others (Ephesians 4:29). What simpler or kinder words do we need to use to bless others than these words Paul sent to Philemon? Let’s find a way to say these words, share them again and again, and then share more like them, too!

My Prayer…

Loving Father, you have blessed me so much with your grace. Please use me to be a blessing to everyone I meet today and each day going forward. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
