A word to start our week : Goodness
Jesus, today we confess that our sinful nature often gets the best of us. We want to do good, but we get in our own way, tripping over our good intentions.
May we remember that it is You who makes the way straight for us, and Your Spirit living in us can set us right again.
When opportunity shows itself this week, when we can choose to do something good for another person, remind us to stop and see through Your filter of love, instead of looking the other way.
In the moments when we realize we missed an opportunity to do good, help us to be kind to ourselves the way you are kind toward us.
May we see Your goodness reflected in others, and may others see Your goodness reflected in us.
The fruit of the Spirit is…. Goodness.
