So often we miss the opportunity to share an encouraging word. We may be busy on our phones, or take the negative route in our conversations when we disagree with someone. Hey, it’s okay to disagree! But sometimes we’re not paying attention to how we disagree. If we disparage others in our zeal for being right, maybe this Advent is an opportunity to rethink where love fits in the picture.
On this Tuesday of Advent, here’s a challenge from one of my favorite spiritual heroines…
“Words are easy to give, yet so often withheld. They assuage loneliness, bring peace and joy, make crooked ways straight and people feel wanted and loved again… Let us show Christ to our brothers and sisters in the thousand ways of love’s ingenuity, but especially in loving words.” Catherine Doherty
grace, peace & WORDS!
