Take the Time (Monday)

thought

 

I know we’re not supposed to envy, but . . . do you see characteristics in other Christians that you wish you had?

 

 

  • Patience, unruffled willingness to wait
  • Peace (it passes my understanding)
  • Powerful prayers
  • Perfect words of encouragement, gentle correction, truth (in love)

These are the characteristics of a mature Christian, yes. Because they are characteristics of Christ. They come not by focusing on the person you admire, but by focusing on Christ. The more time I spend with Christ, the more I become like Him.

I have a long way to go. But I have lots of time. An eternity, in fact.bless soul pic
