I love this verse in Romans.
May the God who gives endurance and encouragement give you the same attitude of mind toward each other that Christ Jesus had, so that with one mind and one voice you may glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. (Romans 15:5, 6 NIV)
I love it because it describes our vision and goal as follows of Christ and then also provides a strategy of how to do it. Realize that along with endurance and encouragement, the Creator will give you the ability to view other people the same way that the Christ did! Wow, just imagine how we could impact the world with if we walked around with those eyes?
This prayer from the writer of Romans is a great way to start the weekend. I hope you find encouragement from it as you get ready to spend that eighth marble. ( 44 weeks left in 2014)
Look out for others, in the same way the Christ Jesus did, and may this weekend bring glory to Him.
