Hey guys, It’s Monday and the start of the second full week of social-distancing here in America because of the COVID-19 virus/pandemic. Life has changed for the short-term and we are not fully aware of how life will be different in the months ahead. Nevertheless, we ALL still have to be responsible for our own FEELINGS, ATTITUDE, and BEHAVIOR. So Let’s talk about that.
Last week I started this series on living an extraordinary life and you can read PART 1 HERE and PART 2 HERE. Today, we will look at Galatians 6:3 and Paul, the author has some hard truth for us. Here’s what it says:
Galatians 6:3 (NLT) – If you think you are too important to help someone, you are only fooling yourself. You are not that important.
When I read that verse, and reflect on what the rest of the passage is saying I think I can hear Paul saying to us; “WAKE UP! BE RESPONSIBLE! DO WHAT YOU CAN!”
In the past three weeks, we have seen Americans horde and/or steal items that just last month didn’t seem to have much value. Toilet Paper. Breathing masks. Rice. Virus Testing Kits. Phone scams are on the rise. Fear is permeating our culture in areas.
Yesterday I had a family meeting where we talked about the new normal for the next few weeks. Our dollars are spread very thin right now and I reminded everyone of the need to conserve all resources except two. We need to be spenders in the area of LOVE and KINDNESS.
I saw a funny cartoon last week about a guy paying for food at the store with squares of toilet paper; that might not be far from the truth. Yet, one resource we all have and it is priceless is the ability to be loving and kind today.
To be loving and kind today will be different but we can do it. What are some ways you have been loving and kind? I would love to hear them, please share them in the comment section or reply in an email. There are countless ways we can be kind and loving this week that might look different than just 2 weeks ago.
This is the third part in a series of posts that I’ll be sharing about living an extraordinary life. Please help me out. Please remember to share this article with others and let’s start a conversation. Also, Life coaching RIGHT NOW is a great idea, all you need is an internet connection for us to meet. Through Life Coaching you will find the purpose in life you desire.
