One of God’s goals for all of us is that we realize the “selves” He originally intended us to be; each different from the next with a unique combination of personality traits, interests and locations along the spiritual path.
Everywhere we go we can encourage people, building them up, challenging them to reach for new heights. God has given us this assignment to love.
God made each of us as a unique individual, so we really shouldn’t be surprised when we grate against one another occasionally.
So often we choose to face life’s issues and circumstances in exactly the same way as someone without the Spirit of God.
