A Memo from Heaven

The Word for Today
Written by Bob and Debby Gass

'...Conquer evil by doing good.' Romans 12:21 TLB

It's easy to forget why God saved you, what He's called you to do, and how you're supposed to live. So here's a memo from Heaven:

'Don't just pretend that you love others: really love them.
Hate what is wrong. Stand on the side of good.
Love each other with brotherly affection and take delight in honouring each other.
Never be lazy in your work but serve the Lord enthusiastically.
Be glad for all God is planning for you.
Be patient in trouble and prayerful always.
When God's children are in need, you be the one to help them out...
If someone mistreats you... pray that God will bless him.
When others are happy, be happy with them.
If they are sad, share their sorrow.
Work happily together.
Don't try to act big.
Don't try to get into the good graces of important people, but enjoy the company of ordinary folks.
Don't think you know it all!
Never pay back evil for evil.
Do things in such a way that everyone will see you are honest clear through.
Don't quarrel with anyone.
Be at peace with everyone, just as much as possible... never avenge yourselves, leave that to God, for He has said that He will repay those who deserve it... Instead, feed your enemy if he is hungry. If he is thirsty give him something to drink and you will be heaping coals of fire on his head. In other words, he will feel ashamed of himself for what he has done to you. Don't let evil get the upper hand but conquer evil by doing good' (Romans 12:9-21 TLB).
