Do not let mercy and kindness and truth leave you [instead let these qualities define you]; bind them [securely] around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart." ~ Proverbs 3:3 (Amp)
One of the primary battlefronts engaging humanity, today, is the fight for your kindness and joy. For the Christian, these qualities have been fought for, paid for and given to us by Jesus Christ as a divine treasure. You must not surrender them to the flesh or to the Enemy.
The stress of details and deadlines. Traffic and trouble, and problems often beyond your sphere. Concerns and cares of responsibilities. It's so easy to yield to the pressures pushing in on you, put your head down and just make it through. However, so many are watching and listening to learn from you how to trust God and reveal His Life.
So beautiful, powerful and impacting to your environment are these gifts, that God assigns them their place of precedence: secured around your neck. Visible, accessible, active. Not in your pocket, backpack or left at home for a better day!
Fellowship with God in worship and prayer. Partake of His Word. Be filled with His Spirit. As you go, look for every opportunity to speak Truth, be kind and impart mercy. For many, you are an open letter from God saying to your world, "I love you!"
