“Therefore, my beloved brothers, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that in the Lord your labor is not in vain.”
1 Corinthians 15:58 (ESV)
Such an endeavor must be always coupled with much prayer. Although steadfastness may come with many challenges, it is always doable. This week, I practice determination through concise pieces of training, program creation, and instructions. For this reason, this note today is shorter than normal.
I would encourage you, though, to continue to love Jesus as He loves us. In doing so, we can better appreciate the uniqueness of others, while adhering to God’s unchanging words. Until I return next week, remember to show empathy and compassion. May we always live in the integrity that is Our Heavenly Father. May we never take shortcuts to reach end goals. For we know that shortcuts are not necessarily built on concrete and lasting foundations. Let us read and practice the lovingkindness of who God is. Likewise, let us also consistently grow our own spiritual intellectuality to nullify anti-intellectual beliefs. We remain alert and engaged and remember words and actions matter. We speak and do, in love. For we know that nothing done in the truth of God is ever in vain.
See you soon!
