This from nightly walk with the kids:
Kindness not being right
True life virtue---not opinion or debate
Loving, redeeming, forgiving, extending grace...
Not judgment, criticism, self-righteousness, cynicism
Living into His grace...
not striving to impress or earn love through works, accomplishment, status, fulfilling expectations, influence,
Being intentional...not just frantically busy
Seeking Him, pondering Him, listening to Him.....
not the approval of man or living by the rules of others or seeking to be popular
Seeking the Kingdom and eternity.... not the kingdom or voices of the world
Honestly admitting a need, confessing a weakness or sin...
not stuffing our insecurities and pretending to be perfect
Being humble and meek...not powerful and influential
Waiting for Him...not living in the flesh and striving
Living a life of worship...
not living a life of self-fulfillment
Being still and knowing He is God...not living a noisy, empty life
These, my treasures, and another view from our nightly walk--irreplaceable.
