Two Words-Encouragement

Today’s two words are: NEVER KNOW

Some people dread the start of the work week.  They focus on the negative or they feel they just can’t keep up with the daily demands.  Be encouraged because faith works in the workplace too. Keep living purposefully on pitch and don’t quit because you “never know” whose life you may touch.

Iron Sharpening

Did you know that a sharp ear doesn’t necessarily go with a sharp tongue?   The book of James reminds me of this truth on staying iron sharp.  Just because I may have a good ear doesn’t mean I must have a bad mouth and cut others with my words. Deep cuts take longer to heal.   How sharp are you with your words?

James 1: 19 ESV says, Know this my beloved brothers, let every person be quick to hear, slow to speak, slow to anger. Now that’s what I call living on pitch!  Keep sharpening that iron and build others up by speaking the truth in love.

Two Words-Relationship

6c704ecb6c5b64a3f6abb1a68d1ec9b4Two words for today are:  NOT ASHAMED

How many times have you heard someone say “they ought to be ashamed of themselves?” One thing that I am glad to know is my relationship with Christ is nothing to be ashamed of.  You don’t have to be ashamed of the gospel if you are a believer.  I might be ashamed of some past mistakes, unhealthy choices or ungodly relationships but my relationship with an all-knowing God helps me to live boldly on pitch and without shame.  Don’t be ashamed of the change or difference God makes in your life!

Romans 1:16 (NKJV) says, For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Jesus Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation, for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek.
