Thought of the Day !!

Let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds.
                             Hebrews 10:24 (NIV)

Have you ever considered how you might "spur" another person towards love and doing good?  We can do this partly by showing love to each other and being an example of one who does good deeds for others.  Another way we can do this is by holding each other accountable.  Let us spur each other on towards love by gently (and maybe not so gently at times depending on what the situation warrants) pointing out where love and forgiveness should be had.

But remember, if we're going to spur others, we must also be prepared to be spurred ourselves.  Too often we can forget to do good or allow bitterness or anger to spur us on without even realizing it.  It is in these times that we have to welcome those who may be gently (or not so gently) trying to point this out to us. 

This is part of what Christ was saying when he commanded us to love one another as he loves us.

In the love of Christ,
