Life Quality Number One: MERCY! On a good day – life is hard. Live life long enough and your life is going to get turned upside down. It is important to remember that all of us living life are going through and facing similar things. The Golden Rule says “To do unto others as you would have them to do unto you!” We are all in need of some mercy! When I was younger we used to play this game called”MERCY” where we would interlock our fingers and see who could bend the other person’s fingers backward. The way to win the game was by getting the other person to say “mercy”. We should show mercy to others without them having to ask for it. We should show it, because we need it!
Life Quality Number Two – Faith! Faith is about trust and we all need to grow some trust into our lives. We especially need to learn to trust God. Do you believe that God loves you? Do you believe that God has a plan for your life? If you really believe that He loves you and has a plan for your life, then it is very important that you learn to trust Him! When we trust God, we arrive at His promises and His purposes for our lives. Fear is the enemy of faith. It is not always easy or convenient to trust and have faith in God, but it is always necessary! Faith is like a muscle – the more you use it, the stronger it grows!
Life Quality Number Three – Obedience! Obedience always follows faith! You know that your faith is growing when you find yourself obeying God’s direction for your life. You cannot obey without faith and you cannot have faith without obeying! It is important to remember: There is a bigger plan than your plan! Open your heart and life to God and follow His will by being obedient in all of your steps for Him and His glory!
