Paying Grace Forward

My friend is making malva pudding and custard for the painters who are working on her building. Why? Because she can.

Jesus says it is more blessed to give than to receive, and God himself demonstrates this by giving us far more than we could ever pay back.

If you’ve been blessed by God’s giving to you, don’t forget to “pay it forward”. Who knows, maybe it will even make you smile as well?

Show forgiveness.

Show kindness.

Show patience.

Show grace.

Because you can.

15 Year Old Jesus?

What would Jesus be like as a 15-year old at your school? Here are some ideas from the gospels: people loved hanging out with him cos he never made them feel small; he made people who abused their power go crazy cos he wouldn’t play by their rules; he showed great love for everyone he met; he was willing to give up everything for what he believed in; he didn’t care much about his reputation.

What was Jesus’ secret? He told us in John 17v3 – his relationship with his Father. You have the same heavenly Father. Could that truth begin to release you to be a bit more like Jesus in your school today?

Right now you can probably think of someone who is almost always kind to you. And someone else who is almost always NOT. Even the most hard-core among us are in touch enough with our emotions to know how it feels when someone is kind, and when they’re not.

Kindness is powerful because it comes straight from the heart of God. It’s a Jesus-magnet that few people can run from. Today, check your words, your tone, your body language, your facial expressions. Do they mirror the kindness of Christ?

Ask God to make you a safe place for others.

‘Love is… kind.’ (1 Corinthians 13v4 http://bit.ly/1aOyzRs )
