So look up! Keep your eyes open for moments of beauty and grace.
It’s a shiny new year and we have the opportunity to bring joy and share hope with others.
Some of the Bible verses I return to over and over again are the ones I am sharing here.
From the prophet Micah in the Old Testament:
He has shown you, O mortal, what is good.
And what does the Lord require of you?
To act justly and to love mercy
and to walk humbly with your God.
Micah 6:8 (NIV)
The words of Jesus as recorded by Matthew in the New Testament:
37 “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ 38 This is the first and greatest commandment. 39 And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ 40 All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”
Matthew 22:37-40 (NIV)
