Who is charge of everything? Who is the pilot of our lives? The boss? Jesus !! He is our Lord. He is God!
God’s will must be more important than our will. God tells us in His Word we should make others more important than ourselves. Giving others first place and putting ourselves in the 'back seat' will show that we love others with God's great love!
Sometimes I put myself first. I think only of myself. Please forgive me. Help me to remember what you say about making others more important. I know when I do, You will take care of me.

" Do to others the same way you want them to do to you."
Before we mistreat a friend or do something that could hurt any one in any way, we must, Think First. How would I feel if someone did that to me? Would I want them to hurt me or say something bad to me? Would I want them to do that to me?
The answer would be, No!
We want others to treat us with love and care about our feelings. Always ask yourself, would Jesus be happy if I treated Billy this way or said that to Jane? Remember, Do What Jesus Would Do!
Guide my words and deeds. Let Your Spirit remind me to always be good to others and treat them with Your loving kindness.

"So then, those who suffer according to God's will should commit themselves to their faithful Creator and continue to do good."
1 Peter 4:19
Sometimes it is hard to be and do good.. We can do good in hard times! God wants to encourage us to keep our eyes on Him. He does not want us to give up or stop doing His good work. Remember, God is faithful! He will always help us to do good. When things look the hardest for us, God shows us He will be our helper. He says when we are weak, He will give us His strength. We must continue to do good and rely on God to help us.
You know everything about me. You know when I am discouraged and when it is hard for me to do good! I pray that you will remind me, You are always with me. I can rely on You to help me do good!

"Do to others as you would have them do to you.”
Sometimes we say lovely words about how much we love God. We talk about loving other people. We promise to love even those who do not love us. It is what is inside of our heart that really counts. It is the action of loving God, the action of loving others, and the action of loving our enemies that really counts. We can only love in great ways when we have Jesus living in our hearts. The Holy Spirit helps us to love the way God loves. Remember to pray for God to help you love the way He loves.
Your love for me was so strong that You sent Your only Son, Jesus to die on the cross so I can live with you forever. I did not deserve that kind of love. Help me to forgive others. Help me to have love for others, no matter what!
