Nudge 24

I’m not going to be kind to him because he’s not kind to me. I’m hurt because he always says mean stuff to me. Why should I be nice to him? I’m not going to forgive him because he never asked for forgiveness. Why should I help him? He never helps me!
Colossians 3:15, “ Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace.”
Colossians 3:23-24, “Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men. Since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving.”
It is not your brother you are serving or showing kindness to. It is not your boss you are serving or showing mercy to. It is not your Dad. It is not your neighbor.
You are serving God first above everyone and everything. This prospective is harsh – you report to God himself. Do you have the right attitude? Are you giving it all you have? Are you trying to bring peace to those around you?
The next time you have a choice to be kind pop this nugget in your head: YOU REPORT DIRECTLY TO GOD! HOW ARE YOU GOING TO TREAT THE PEOPLE AROUND YOU?
