thought for thursday

Daily Bible Verse
Romans 12:15
Rejoice with those who rejoice; mourn with those who mourn.
That is my verse today and I thought it was pretty poignant.
Especially in these trying times.
God's way is to enter into the joys and sorrows of those around us.
Meaning be happy for that friend who is happily celebrating her new home purchase, or the family member who got that job she's been praying for and rejoice with her.
Happily.
Not begrudgingly and with the thought "how come stuff like that doesn't happy to me?"
And when our friends are suffering we shouldn't turn and hide from them.
we need to embrace their mourning and mourn with them.
Then look for ways to help them out.
This verse really hit home for me today and I will be doing my best to apply it to my life in the coming weeks.

  1. Admittedly, I'm not up on my bible verses. However, I have always loved Romans. That is one book in the bible that I continually return to if I'm searching for some answers. Thank you for some inspiration!
