Here is an excerpt from a recent daily devotion from Pastor Kerry. You can read and subscribe to his daily devotions at RevKerry.com.
Don’t just be with people, really be with them. Feel free to feel their joys and sorrows with them. Strive to get along well with others. Don’t think you have to be, or act like, you are better than anyone else. You are good enough and that is good enough.
Don’t “get back” at people. Doing so damages yourself so why do double damage? If you are to do anything, practice kindness and generosity. Be a force for good in the world.
This seems so simple because it really is simple. It is also possible. One thought at a time. One action at a time. One day at a time.
Perhaps the right question to ask is, “How (rather than what) do I want to be when I grow up?”
