2019-07-22 - How Are You?
"How are you?" We may be asked this question several times a day, by strangers to acquaintances. Our answer can be as real or impersonal as we want. Many times, I admit to answering based on my feelings instead of responding by faith.
I usually answer, "Fine" or "Okay, and you?" If I truly lived out what the Bible says, my response would be very bold and possibly encouraging. Sadly, I haven't been brave enough.
When a store clerk or a long lost friend asks how you've been, how do you respond?
Psalm 119 gives us many cheery deliveries.
Lord, Help me be brave and not ashamed to tell others the difference You make. Give me some one-liners to plant a seed in someone else's life. In Jesus' name I pray, Amen.
