Good Morning Encouragement Block Family!!!! We hope that today you and your family are Blessed and highly Favored! Full of Joy that only Give can you! Wanted to share a word of encouragement today about one of the greatest fruits of the spirit which is “Love”.
On Wednesday my wife and I we’re on dates with our children. My son (7yrs old) took my wife on a date and paid for their meals. I took my two daughters (10yrs old & 5months) on a date as well in the same restraunt. This was a great experience! Just being able to sit down my son and tell him how to treat a woman(his mother), or a lady while being on a date. How to be a gentleman to your date. How to prepare yourself for the date(pick your clothes out, tie a tie, make sure your shoes are clean, putting on cologne properly, give complements to your date,ect…) because it is about the “preparation” aspect part that helps us men out a lot when it comes to dating. I even gave some tips to my daughter about dating. What clothes to wear, how a man(her father) should treat her, and how to conduct her self while on a date.
Now the experience, like I said was great and I’ll always remember this day forever. But the one thing was great to witness was the “Love” overall. Our first ministry that we should walk boldly in, out of “Love” should be “Family”. Ministering towards your family daily through Love is awesome and powerful. Yes, at times it can be tiring, time consuming, or even frustrating at times. However, it is amazing when you have a moment to thank God becuase you’re witnessing your children operate through acts of love. Watching them mature and show acts of appreciation. These are some of the things that makes us as parent proud to see. When I saw all of this happening on Wednesday 1Corinthians 13:1-13 came to my mind. Love is great! I hope that in the mist of your busy work week, or hectic schedule that you will able to make time for your family and just Love on them. Enjoy those moments because they are worth holding on to forever. God Bless & Be Blessed…Peace. #BeEncouraged #GodIsAwesome #IAmTheLightOfTheWorld #GodSizeDreamer #FaithWalk
1 Corinthians 13New International Version (NIV)
“ 13 If I speak in the tongues[a] of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. 2 If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. 3 If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast,[b] but do not have love, I gain nothing.
4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
8 Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. 9 For we know in part and we prophesy in part,10 but when completeness comes, what is in part disappears. 11 When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me. 12 For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.
13 And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.”
