Ephesians 4:31-32 ESV
“Let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor and slander be put away from you, along with malice. Be kind to one another, tender hearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you.”
Be sweet. Be Kind. Be a pure representative of what Christ stands for.
How simple is that? Sometimes at the end of the week (or even the beginning lol) it can be tough to stay in a sweet hearted demeanor. We feel overworked and overwhelmed and the weekend is so close we can taste it. Our fuses are short and we don’t know how much more we can take. Sound familiar?Still, God wants us to stay kind. It’s one of the Fruits of the Spirit. (Check out my posts explaining each of the Fruits of the Spirit in depth HERE.) Where we fall short God compensates with His grace. So, when we feel like there is nothing left in us and we just can’t do it anymore, we put our faith in God that through Him alone we can find what we need to persevere and do it!
He will never give you more than you can handle.
However, we were never meant to do this alone. We were created to rely on Him and be in a relationship with Him. When we put our trust in God and fully rely on Him instead of just trying to do it all ourselves, then we receive the grace to get through every impossible situation we are presented with. Not even just “get through” them actually, but persevere and overcome them!
