Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience.
Lots of believers stumble from day to day trying to hear God, wondering what His perfect will is for our lives, looking for it on bumper stickers or on a blog…or even in a daily devotion. Let me save you some wondering. God has preordained good works for you to do today. You will cross paths with someone who needs your help. You will connect with a person who needs encouragement. Your eyes will meet with a stranger’s whose present situation seems insurmountable, and your brief smile will be the warmest part of his day. God has appointments with your name written on them – dates, times, opportunities for you to engage in acts of kindness that are an extension of His workmanship. He is everywhere, but He chooses to manifest Himself through the goodness of other people.
Sweet Freedom in Action
What are we going to do today? The same thing we do every other day. Keep our appointments. Be aware of opportunities to do good for others. The kingdom is revealed when we act with loving kindness.
