Little Nameless Acts Of Kindness - Thoughful Tuesdays

It is the Thoughtful Tuesday today.

There are many people who have been close to God and have given us good thoughts to meditate on.

God's Word gives us many verses we need to pray about.

Today is dedicated to those thoughts, ideas, verses and words that make us think and make us want to be closer to God.

Here are today's thoughts!

Through the centuries men have displayed many different symbols to show that they are Christians. They have worn crosses in the lapels of their coats, hung chains about their necks, even had special haircuts. Of course, there is nothing intrinsically wrong with any of this, if one feels it is his calling. But there is a much better sign, a universal mark that is to last through all the ages of the church until Jesus comes back…Love- and the unity it attests to- is the mark Christ gave Christians to wear before the world. Only with this mark may the world know that Christians are indeed Christians and that Jesus was sent by the Father.
Francis Schaeffer

So I say, live by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the sinful nature.
Galatians 5:16
The New International Version

Veljeni, pitäkää pelkkänä ilona, kun joudutte moninaisiin kiusauksiin, tietäen, että teidän uskonne kestäväisyys koetuksissa saa aikaan kärsivällisyyttä. Ja kärsivällisyys tuottakoon täydellisen teon, että te olisitte täydelliset ja eheät ettekä missään puuttuvaiset.
Jaak. 1:2-4 KR33/38

  1. Love the quote about "love" being the mark that Christians are to wear the loudest. The Calvin Coolidge quote speaks to me too--I tend to be a worrier unnecessarily. Great quotes here, Joanna.

    1. Thank you, Lisa! I agree, love is the best mark, but it is also the hardest. I struggle with it every day. It's so easy to fall and judge, but it is also an honor to carry God's love in our hearts.

  2. Beautiful! Be encouraged in the Lord.
