Be the first

“Jesus loves you”. I’ve heard of this phrase many times especially after I became a Christian. I am so grateful that He loves me even though I am so far from being perfect.

How could someone love me so much that He died for me? What did I do to deserve this gracious love? Well frankly, I have done nothing for Jesus to love me. Yet He loves me anyway.

So every time when someone mistreats me, I remind myself that Jesus first loves me then I too shall love others. It is easier to be said than done. But hey, we shall love because He first loves us. And yes, we ought to be the first to love others, before they too love us.

No Worries

I woke up with this verse of the day:
Matthew 6:34 NLT
“So don’t worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring its own worries. Today’s trouble is enough for today.”

As a woman, I admit that I worry a lot; I try to make connections from A to Z. Like last night I went to bed thinking about what to do the next day. From planning my schedule lead to thinking about what to do during the week and what to wear for my special weekend.

Yes, I have read this passage before and I sometimes forget. But it is nice to have a good reminder.
