Ann – A Friend of Jesus 2013

Sharing life through the Word of God with love, encouragement and faith in challenging times (smile)

Check Our Motive

Let us check our motive about the words we choose to say at times. 😜



Kindness is the next best thing we can offer each other as we grow to love unconditionally. Sometimes, we can choose not to make that comment, notice that flaw and assume the worst about someone. Kindness and unconditional love go together. 😜

Remember we are working to love like Jesus loves. 1 Corinthians 13:3-13 (NKJV) – 3 And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, but have not love, it profits me nothing. 4 Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; 5 does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; 6 does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; 7 bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. 8 Love never fails. But whether there are prophecies, they will fail; whether there are tongues, they will cease; whether there is knowledge, it will vanish away. 9 For we know in part and we prophesy in part. 10 But when that which is perfect has come, then that which is in part will be done away. 11 When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child; but when I became a man, I put away childish things. 12 For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part, but then I shall know just as I also am known. 13 And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love.

It always comes down to choices and our motives behind the choice! God bless us as we keep moving forward! 😜

I find so much comfort in your Blog. It’s a beautiful place for me to find comfort and peace. I make it a practice in my life to always smile at people and compliment them. I know how I feel when it is reciprocated.

Amen! We learned in our Ladies Bible Study this year that it’s also such a blessing to other people when we think something nice about them to say it and not keep it to ourselves. God Bless you! Your Blog is a refreshing place to be.
