We’ve been talking about the women in the genealogy of Christ and of how they were “true in relationship.” They chose to bless, to make the sacrifices they thought God would have them make in order to be true. I love the greeting scene when Elizabeth blesses Mary over and over. She was not jealous of Mary but thrilled at her good news. She saw Mary’s faith and encouraged her with a good word.
We have a chance to bless the dear people and the difficult people in our lives this Christmas — a chance to be “true in relationship.”
How will that look for you? How will you depend on the Lord in this?
I’m already asking the Lord to help “no negative word come out of my mouth, but only that which will edify.” I truly want to be a blessing. Pray for me to be as dear and positive as Elizabeth!
How about you? How can we pray for you to be true in relationship?
