"It is my judgment, therefore, that we should not make it difficult for the Gentiles who are turning to God." Acts 15:19

RESPONDING

In my every day world I usually lose it over things like, "If people would just do their jobs." That is my typical response to most situations. Us humans tend to go off on tangents and we do not do what is obviously our responsibility to do. Yeah at home or work. I am one of those over focused left brained (only when I am not painting) people that will always ALWAYS put work over play, rest or relaxation. Sometimes to the painful realization that I should stop for a bathroom break occasionally.

Responding is a huge word today for my thoughts. It is an action taken daily by all of us in every waking moment of the day. Not only do we "Respond", we have the choice of how to respond or react to something. We can choose to be angry or happy. We can choose a path of not allowing things to get under our skin. We can choose to believe good is there buried deep beneath the pain.

In the bible verse above, James was speaking to an assembly of followers. Many Gentiles were turning to God and the Disciples did not want to make it difficult for them. They were responding to the needs of the Gentiles as they sought to be a part of the faith.

Our response to others in our life needs to adjusted to be in a Godly light, a positive light. Even when you feel persecuted or mistreated, adjust your response accordingly.

God does it for us all the time. He continues to provide for us despite the fact that He often sits for years waiting for us to respond to Him. Is He still waiting for you to respond?

Joyful Abundance,

Laurie
