Word Filled Wednesday–Let’s Strive Together


Make sure that nobody pays back wrong for wrong, but always strive to do what is good for each other and for everyone else.
I Thessalonians 5:15


Our family is winding down little league soccer season this week.  I think soccer is my favorite sport!  I love the action of the game, the fast running, the concentration and competition to get the ball. But I really love to watch a group of kids on the same team play together with unity and purpose.  They are striving to get the ball and get a goal.  Take a  look at this picture as they run together in almost perfect unison toward the ball.  What a picture of unity, purpose and determination!
God’s Word encourages us as Christians to not get caught up in who wronged who or worry about paybacks.  But, we are to strive – use some action and effort to do what is good to one another and to everyone else. 
So, may we be challenged to make it a purpose this week to look for and go do some good for each other.  Let’s get moving!!


  1. Just reading about "loving your neighbor as yourself". We need to put that into practice, don't we?

  2. PERFECT picture for that verse! And I love how you put the verses into pictures!! Would love to learn that talent:)

  3. LOVE this!!! I love when we can use these "real life" images as application! This is fantastic!


  4. This is wonderful encouragement, thank you for sharing! Happy WFW!

  5. Love the picture for the verse! How often we choose to bicker, complain, and get caught up in choosing not to strive together. Praying that I can strive towards that heavenly goal..


Thank you for sharing your commment. It is a joy and blessing to hear from you and your words are appreciated.
