You need Mercy and Truth…

You need Mercy and Truth…

“Let not mercy and truth forsake thee: bind them about thy neck; write them upon the table of thine heart: So shalt thou find favour and good understanding in the sight of God and man.” Proverbs 3:3-4

As you board a commercial flight, upon entering the cabin you will be given the Oxygen Mask Rule by the Flight Attendant; “Should the cabin lose pressure, oxygen masks will drop from the overhead area. Please place the mask over your own mouth and nose before assisting others.” Why does the flight attendant tell you this? Because you are no help to your loved ones and fellow citizens unless you take care of yourself first.

Good health & excellent relationships require us to take serious our personal need for mercy & truth. If we don’t help ourselves we can’t help others for very long. The best message is our example. We need to give ourselves daily the grace of forgiveness. This forgiveness allows us to experience a fresh renewal.

We are human beings that fail, forget, & fumble at times. Allowing your heart to humble is the way to peace and growth. This is a good reminder to be intentional with appropriating the Spirit’s help on the inside and on the outside of us. As we experience this understanding working in us we will attract love and favor toward us. Take good care of yourself today and give from the overflow of lovingkindness to others.
“Be patient with yourself. Self-growth is tender; it’s holy ground.
There’s no greater investment.” Stephen Covey
