We are each unique. Choose to respect each other’s individuality. Do not attack someone simply because they do not speak, dress, or look just like you. Respect their individuality as you would want them to respect yours.
Challenge yourself to stay on the narrow road of integrity. Challenge yourself to take the high road with every opportunity. Stay focused on what God has for you and where He is leading you rather than looking at and judging another. As much as possible, live in peace with one another.
As we come to the end of the Advent week theme of JOY: Jesus, Others, Yourself; remember, always keep Jesus first in your heart. We have spent the last week meditating on what He says to each one of us to lead us to the abundant life He died to give us. Stay focused on Him. The things and situations of the world will fade, but His Word will never pass away.
