Meditation on 1 Thessalonians 2:7~8:
Paul said: "But we were mild, kind among you even as a nurse nourishes her children with warmth. Thus yearning with affection for you, we were well pleased to share with you not only the good news of God, but also our own vital spirit because you were dearly beloved by us."
God speaks to my heart:
Those who come to know Me through you will always be responsive to your tender concern. As you share yourself with them, as you are open, vulnerable, honest, they will realize saints are human beings, frail and faulty, who have persistently held onto Me through every kind of circumstance and found Me faithful, worthy of trust.
"The servant of the Lord must not strive; but be gentle." 2 Tim. 2:24 (kjv)

I believe in the sun even when it is not shining. I believe in love even when I feel it not. I believe in God even when He is silent. *Written on a wall in a concentration camp*
