Lighthouse Treasures – 4 June 2018

Dear friends

We are busy looking at one of our school’s values – caring.  Last time we focused on how to help people in need.  This week we will focus on how to be sensitive and considerate towards others.

As children of God we must not be self-seeking, but we must look out for the interest of others.  The motto of this selfish world is that it is all about me but our focus must be on always being humble, to love one another and watch what we say to people.  When you are about to say something mean or arrogant, consider the feelings of others.  It is sinful to be mean, proud and selfish.

In all that you do, always take others into consideration.  Don’t hold a grudge, but forgive like God forgave us.  When someone is going through a tough time, comfort them like God comforts us.  When someone needs help, help them just as God continually helps us.  Do all things for God’s glory.  Be encouraged today to be more sensitive towards the people around you and let’s pray to be more about we and less about me.
Philippians 4:5
Let everyone see that you are considerate in all you do.  Remember, the Lord is coming soon.

Romans 12:16
Live in harmony with each other.  Don’t be too proud to enjoy the company of ordinary people.

1 Corinthians 10:24
People should be concerned about others and not just about themselves.

Lets focus on being more sensitive towards others, putting their feelings before ours.  Lets start doing this by watching what we say about and to people.  Life and death lies in the tongue.  Let our words build up and encourage others.  Let the love of God be found in your words.  Let this act of sensitivity become part of our daily walk and talk so that our children can see and experience it and follow our example.
