TEXT: COLOSSIANS 3:12-17
MEMORY VERSE: “And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation” (2 CORINTHIANS 5:18).
A teacher thought about the importance of making people feel valued. So, he asked his class to imagine they were about to die and to write a note telling someone how and why they appreciated them.
One of the students who had a rocky relationship with her mom decided to write her. Her letter reads, “We’ve had some rough times and I haven’t always been a very good daughter, but I know I’m lucky to have you in my life.
“You are the best person I’ve ever known. And even when I disagree with you, I never doubt you love me and want what’s best for me. Thanks for not giving up on me.” When Evelyn’s mom read the note, she cried and hugged her tightly but said very little. She later wrote a note to her telling her that being her mother was, by far, the most important thing in her life.
God can heal any rocky relationship. Just pray, apologise and give reassurance of your trust in those offended. Are you bearing grudges with someone, “…even as Christ forgave you, so also do ye.”
QUOTE: God can heal any rocky relationship.
CHALLENGE: Relationships grow better with Jesus.
PRAYER: Help me Lord, to set things right with everyone.
