Word Filled Wednesday

Today is Word Filled Wednesday where many are blessed by God's Word being shared in verse and picture.
Since February is called "the Love month", I wanted to share a familiar verse today. In I Corinthians 13:6 in the middle of "the love chapter", it says, "does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth." Do you notice how easy it is to share bad news? Is it only me, or does it seem that bad news spreads faster than good news? Let's say you get the call that someone has passed away, or is sick, or a bad situation has occurred, that news is usually passed on in record time. Mainly we share this with others to offer prayer for the situation and I'm talking about a different sharing than "gossip" where people are slandered and intimate details shared. But it seems that bad news travels fast.

What about good news? Someone receiving a promotion, a new job, any type of honor or gift, we should share and rejoice with them abundantly.

As the body of Christ what a blessing we can be to others if we rejoice in the good things, bear with one another - good and bad, hope and believe in the power of God's love. The rest of the verses tell us that "Love Never Fails".

May your Word Filled Wednesday be overflowing with God's love!

  2. This is so true. We should encourage our prayer partners to spend as much time in thankful prayer as we do in needful prayer. Same for complaints/compliments. Lately, I've been making it a point to leave positive remarks on comment cards. It's nice to see people brighten up when you tell them they're doing a good job. 8-]

    Have a JESUS-filled day! ^i^

    Yes, I agree we should be just as eager to share good tidings, as bad--and give God the glory.

    Happy WFW! :~D
