PRAYER: Continued prayers for a family that lost their son this week to a heroin overdose.
DEVOTION: “Never speak harshly to an older man, but appeal to him respectfully as you would to your own father. Talk to younger men as you would to your own brothers. Treat older women as you would your mother, and treat younger women with all purity as you would your own sisters. Take care of any widow who has no one else to care for her.” – 1 Timothy 5:1-3
Paul speaking on respect here. Almost as if he’s saying treat others as you would like to be treated. The old adage taught to us our mothers when we were kids.
Words to live by and a gentle reminder.
Treat others with respect. Treat others with the care and love of Jesus. Be Jesus to them and show them the hope and love of Jesus as you interact with them.
That all would hear these words and live them…..
