“Then Christ will make his home in your hearts as you trust in him. Your roots will grow down into God’s love and keep you strong.” Ephesians 3:17
In this month, God doesn’t want us to quarrel, or to desire earthly things. I mentioned in an early post of this month that God isn’t concerned with us striving for things on this world. All of this is good, but the problem is keeping our hearts in innocence and purity after God blesses us. Will our hearts change as God begins to reward us? Will we remain in innocence and in purity, even after God exalts us to places we’ve never been to before? The key to remaining humble (I need it even in my own life) is to stay rooted in love, not worrying about earthly desires. We must pray on a daily basis to not let privileges, stress, or opportunities get to our heads, and we must never think that we are better than others because they don’t receive those chances. How much greater would the world be if we loved one another regardless of imperfections? The greatest example we can give to the world is not our talents, but the love that we have and share for one another. I admire people that have a humble heart, and I love how God always draws me to people that have that same gentle and humble spirit. It is hard to deal with immaturity, pride, or stubbornness. Not to say I’m perfect, but it is easier to work with people that are constantly in the same spirit as we are.
