Common courtesy, common respect, and common sense aren’t so common anymore. It is a sad reality…but it doesn’t have to continue that way. We can make a huge difference in the negative behaviors that have become acceptable. We can be the example that the world needs. Make a conscious choice today, to focus even more on the way you show your kindness, respect, and compassion toward others. Use the common sense that God gave you, and allow His love to shine through you. A simple “thank you”, ”excuse me”, or even a wave hello…can change the atmosphere. There are simple acts of love that create unity and break the barriers of ‘stranger’…and create ‘friendship’. Helping other people in the most basic forms of kindness, mimics the love of Jesus. We don’t have to be doing giant acts of service to be helping other people. It starts with accepting the world with kindness…no matter how negative the environment may be. You have the opportunity to shift the attitudes of anyone you encounter, by being the example that God calls us to be. Love one another…smile throughout your day…and let your light shine brightly!

In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in Heaven. MATTHEW 5:16

But he who looks into the perfect law of liberty and continues in it, and is not a forgetful hearer but a doer of the work, this one will be blessed in what he does. JAMES 1:25

God is with us.
