I hope you like the title. I am not going to tell you how I got the little wave symbol above the “n” unless you ask. It is very simple to do though.
Okay, so what is up with Boris this year. Two things: oneWord and Ephesian 4:29.
Go to this site and check out the link at the bottom called oneWord. Read it and do it if you feel so inclined. My word for the year is commitment. I am looking forward to seeing how that plays out. Commitment to my faith(if you love me you will obey what I command), commitment to my family(second priority in life next to God), to my church(I am tired of being a spectator), to my school(both at work and in graduate school), etc… I want to be known as someone who is loyal and as someone who will still be around when times get tough. That builds trust and integrity in relationships and relationships are what God cares about the most. Otherwise why even send Jesus, right?
Second, Ephesians 4:29 out of the Holman Christian Standard Bible reads:
“No rotten talk should come from your mouth, but only what is good for the building up of someone in need, in order to give grace to those who hear.”
Couple this with Ephesians 5:4 “And coarse and foolish talking or crude joking are not suitable, but rather giving thanks” and the realization of my words not meeting Christian standards sets in. Doesn’t it make sense though? Shouldn’t someone who has a belief in experiencing eternal life in a good way be someone that is a joy to be around? Shouldn’t that person be an encourager, motivator, good communicator, and a positive realist?
My wife and I are looking at adopting the Ephesians 4:29 verse for our marriage. If we can start at home to live it out then it should affect other aspects of our lives as well. How cool would that be?!
Gotta go. Limited time and lots to do.
Blessings for the New Year!
