Day 4 and Day 5 of Wk 2: Stop the Drama-Complaining

Day 4

Proverbs 27:17

Help Others Grow Stronger

Things that are made of iron, like a knife or a sword, can sharpen each other. You can take two knives made of iron, rub them together, and they’ll sharpen each other without the other one dulling out.

That should be true with our friendships. We should hang around people who have the same values as us. That way, we can continually build each other up.

Those kinds of friendships will help you and your friends grow each other, challenge each other, encourage each other, and strengthen each other to be who God intended you to be.

So go and be iron to one another and become who God made you to be.

dAY 5

1 Corinthians 13:1-13


God’s love for us is unconditional. What that means is that He loves us no matter what, and He doesn’t expect anything in return. It doesn’t matter what we’ve done, what we’ve been through, or who we are; He won’t love us any less. His love is perfect, unending, and doesn’t expect anything.

Living an others-first kind of life requires loving people without expecting anything in return.
It can be so easy to get caught up in only putting others first if we get something out of it—if they’re nice to us or treat us right.

The hard thing to do is help people, be there for them, and love them when you know you won’t get anything from it or even when they aren’t the nicest to you.
Pray that you will learn to love people and help people without expecting anything because that, after all, is unconditional love.
