Verse of the Day – Romans 15:1
Dear friend of Jesus, have patience with those around you who are not yet what God intends for them to be — remembering that you are not yet all that God intends for you to be. As you “bear with” their “failings”, you may find that others are patient with your failings and are more thankful for your faithfulness than you realize. Of course, the goal of being patient isn’t to benefit ourselves. Instead, we do it to bless others, knowing that many of our brothers and sisters in Christ are hanging on to their faith, hope, and love by the thinnest of threads. Let’s never let them go and never cause them to stumble!
