Be Cheerful in Tough Times

Philippians 2:14-16 The Message (MSG)
Do everything readily and cheerfully—no bickering, no second-guessing allowed! Go out into the world uncorrupted, a breath of fresh air in this squalid and polluted society. Provide people with a glimpse of good living and of the living God. Carry the light-giving Message into the night so I’ll have good cause to be proud of you on the day that Christ returns. You’ll be living proof that I didn’t go to all this work for nothing.

If we cannot show the hope and peace of God to the people of this world, where else will they find it? Be cheerful in those tough times, even when you don’t feel like it! Pass on a smile to someone even when that’s the last thing you feel like doing. Let this world can see Christ through you while you are weathering a storm or while you are on a mountain top. If someone hears us do nothing but complain or argue, chances are they will not think too highly of our God. Let’s be the witnesses God wants us to be.

Have a blessed day.
