When The Sun Rises

Each new day starts with a fresh dose of daylight to brighten our eyes and warm our skin.  Then we will walk out our door.  It is the attitude we start with that will carry us through our day.  If you start the day with disdain, it will be a horrible day - I guarantee it.  But if you walk out the door with hopeful anticipation, it will be much better.

Hebrews 3:13 says  But exhort one another every day, as long as it is called “today,” that none of you may be hardened by the deceitfulness of sin.

Understand that this world doesn't want you to get any joy out of your day or any day for that matter. This world, which is full of sin and disobedience against God, is determined to destroy you and everything around you.  That includes your hope for this day.  

The writer of Hebrews tells us how to counter this nonsense.  Exhort or encourage each other.  If you want encouragement, help someone.  Smile at everyone.  Greet people with a cheerful hello.  Ask if you can help someone today.   Just give what you want, and God will return everything to you with more to spare. 

PRAY:  Dear Jesus, help me to help others day.  AMEN
