God’s Love Puts Others First

A Truth to Live – I live in a “me first” generation where people focus their time and energy on self-benefiting plans and dreams. But God’s ways are different.  He has created me to love others, to think the best of them, to care for others and to bless those in need. When I follow His ways I always experience the power of His presence.

Scripture – “The word of the LORD came to me: ‘Son of man, prophesy against the shepherds of Israel; prophesy and say to them: This is what the Sovereign LORD says: Woe to the shepherds of Israel who only take care of themselves! Should not shepherds take care of the flock…You have not strengthened the weak or healed the sick or bound up the injured. You have not brought back the strays or searched for the lost. You have ruled them harshly and brutally. So they were scattered because there was no shepherd, and when they were scattered they became food for all the wild animals. My sheep wandered over all the mountains and on every high hill. They were scattered over the whole earth, and no one searched or looked for the’.”  Ezekiel 34:1-6

Prayer – Heavenly Father, How grateful I am today that Your love extends to me.  Teach me to look after the needs of others just as You love and care for me. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
