Likeable God...

“Be agreeable, be sympathetic, be loving, be compassionate, be humble.”
~I Peter 3:8

"They called Jesus a blasphemer, but they never called him a braggart. They accused him of heresy, but never arrogance. He was branded as a radical, but never unapproachable.

There is no hint that he ever used his heavenly status for personal gain. Ever. You just don’t get the impression that his neighbors grew sick of his haughtiness and asked, “Well, who do you think made you God?”

His faith made him likeable. "~Max Lucado

I feel like there is so much arguing- constantly on TV....Fox v. Jon Stewart...Glenn Beck v. Al radio bashing on both sides....

I was reminded that whatever side we fall on...especially if we do NOT agree......we MUST be humble....we MUST be approachable...we MUST be compassionate...we MUST be loving....We MUST at least try and Be Like Jesus!

God, Thank You for the reminder to follow Your Lead...and not my own.

In His Dust,
