Daily Scriptures 1/3/12

Scripture: Proverbs 26:27 Whoever digs a pit for others will fall into it. Whoever tries to roll a boulder down on others will be crushed by it. (NCV)

Nugget: We’ve all heard the saying, “What goes around comes around.” This definitely relates to how we treat others & what we put out there regarding our actions & thoughts towards others.

Many people put a lot of energy into treating others badly & also trying to making things difficult for others; they spend so much time & energy trying to “get people back” for something or just disliking people in general. We’ve all had instances in which people have done various underhanded things to us. However, in these situations, these same people will set themselves up for a downfall; they end up trapped in their own actions & plans.

It’s so important for us to be mindful of how we treat others; even those who treat us badly. We must continue to pray about our actions, thoughts, & reactions; allowing God to be our guide.

Quote: “Treat everyone with politeness, even those who are rude to you - not because they are nice, but because you are.” -Author Unknown

Lisi, I definitely needed to read this! I have been badly treated by some people lately, and it has been a real challenge to rise above that and treat them with kindness.

Thank you for visiting my blog and commenting. If you get a chance, click on the link I have for my friend Elaine's blog, Peace for the Journey. She explains even more about the anchor verse.

Blessings to you in 2012!
