Getting Along

January 3, 2013

I love being with people . . . most of the time. There is a special joy that resonates in our hearts when we are with people we enjoy. But unfortunately we are not always with those we like to be around. Sometimes people can be prickly, which may be why someone has said, “The more I get to know people, the more I love my dog!” When we don’t find joy in a relationship, we tend to blame the other person; then we excuse ourselves as we exit to be with people we like.

The apostle Paul asks us to lovingly engage with our brothers and sisters in Christ. In fact, he calls all of us to be “of one accord,” to look out “for the interests of others,” and to “let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus” (Phil. 2:2-5). Think about it. Jesus gave up His own prerogatives and privileges for us; He chose to live as a servant and paid the ultimate sacrifice that He might bring us into a joy-filled relationship with Him (see Heb. 12:2). And He did all that in spite of our prickliness (see Rom. 5:8).

So next time you are with someone who is not easy to get along with, ask Jesus to help you find a way to extend His love. In time, you might be surprised by how God can change your attitude about people.

Lord, thank You that while I was still offensive to You,
You saved me with Your sacrificial love. Give me the
same courage and grace to extend to others the love
that You have so graciously extended to me.
The key to getting along with others
is having the mind of Christ.

Read: Philippians 2:1-11

Fulfill my joy by being like-minded, having the same love. —Philippians 2:2
Bible in a Year:
Genesis 7-9; Matthew 3

Aloha and good afternoon, Hawaii...((HUGS))

Hope you are getting some sun.

Still slip sliding. I can’t wait for this warm weather to go away. It’s the middle of winter for goodness sake, not time for break up. I come to work on a couple of the main roads, so part of my commute is pretty dry. But getting to those main drags is dicey. Maybe some snow this weekend.

Went out early and came home before the amateurs went out. Had a good evening. Home for new year, had NA champagne with our 17 year old daughter. Had fun and that’s what counts.

How bout you?

Good evening, Connie, and thanks for the Tribute to Our Troops.

Rough couple days here with my Dad. Won’t get up, a couple falls. One day at a time.

How is FIL? Did you have a quiet New Years? Lots of fireworks?

I could see the high ones from the back deck. The big display is downtown....personal ones are not legal, but with the wide open school yard right behind us....we saw a lot more. d:o)
