In Public Relations, we recently had a guest speaker. His main point was about how PR fits into the government; however, he said that it’s all about building relationships and made a point that I believe is so true.
“In today’s world, we use people and love things instead of loving people and using things.”
I know I’m guilty of that. So my question is how did I get to that point?
Through Lent, God was working in my heart about denying the world and seeking him and his will for everything.
I’m amazed at how easy it is to get caught up in worldly things – how easy it is to be selfish with my time and abilities that God has blessed me with, how easy it is to over-indulge in good food and how easy it is to get caught up in trivial matters.
Paul writes to the Christians in Ephesus, As for you, you were dead in your transgressions and sins, in which you used to live when you followed the ways of this world and of the ruler of the kingdom of the air, the spirit who is now at work in those who are disobedient. All of us also lived among them at one time, gratifying the cravings of our sinful nature and following its desires and thoughts. Like the rest, we were by nature objects of wrath.
But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions – it is by grace you have been saved. (Ephesians 2:1-5)
Spring is time of birth and new growth. Easter was just celebrated. God loved us so much that he sent His Son to die in the most horrible way in order for us to appear pure and blameless. What better time to really seek God and the amazing plans He has for your life?
A big questions I have for you this week (and this requires some action) – How is your heart?
Take some time to visit with a close friend or send me a letter/email. How is your heart? Where are you with God? What is good in life? What is bad? Let’s pull together and help each other overcome this world and truly love people.
Happy Trails & God Bless! To contact Kristen with questions or comments, email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
