Courage – Daily TAGline

Thought:

We each have our own strengths and weaknesses. It’s what we do with what we’ve got – or don’t have – that really matters.

Challenge:

Don’t underestimate your strengths and the good you can do with them in service to others. Use your God-given gifts to make the world a better place. You already have what you need – start today.

As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God’s varied grace. 1 Peter 4:10 (NABRE)

The world offers you comfort, but you were not made for comfort; you were made for greatness! -Pope Benedict XVI

Anything is possible if you are willing to commit yourself to it, mind and body, and do the work.

Kindness – Daily TAGline

Thought:

Every single act of kindness, no matter how small, has a ripple effect.

Practice the power of kindness today. Like many people who have a daily goal of steps using their Fitbits, start your very own daily “acts of kindness goal” and make sure you follow through. You’ll soon see the ripple effects of your efforts.

Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. Colossians 3:12 (NABRE)

Wisdom – Daily TAGline

Thought:

By three methods we may learn wisdom: First, by reflection, which is noblest; Second, by imitation, which is easiest; and third by experience, which is the bitterest.

Make it your goal to always take the time for reflection and analysis before you act. Reflection allows you the perspective to imitate the right things and to avoid experiences that may lead you away from His plan for you.

Reference:

Blessed is the man who finds wisdom, the man who gains understanding Proverbs 3:13 (NABRE)
