Ephesians Challenge

The verse I wanted to share today from Ephesians 4 is verse 2:

Always be humble and gentle. Be patient with each other, making allowance for each other’s faults because of your love.

What really hit me was the first word.  ALWAYS.  I hate to admit this, but I struggle being consistant with anything.  Perhaps it is the nature of being a mother of 3 or maybe it is just MY nature.   

However God’s Word says in this verse that I need to be consistently humble and gentle.  Consistently patient and giving grace to others.  And the reason I do all of this is because of my love for them and my love for God. 

The question that Adam asked us to mediate on while reading this week is How is my life different because of what God’s Word is saying to me today?  Today God is telling me ALWAYS.  Work on your consistency with humility, gentleness, patience and grace. 

Wow!  That’s a tall order.  But I believe that is God’s calling on my life.
