Monday Morning Meditation


What comes to mind when you read Romans 12:18? Will you share your thoughts with our community?

To participate in Monday Morning Meditations, simply choose ONE of the following:

  • reflect on the passage and share a story or example from your life that exemplifies the truth of that passage
  • write a devotional of sorts, providing a more theological perspective on the selection
  • post a photo that you think captures the heart of the message
THEN…
  1. Link up here (follow the button directions below)
  2. AND…visit the blogger who linked up ahead of you!! A must! Since the point of this linky-party is to encourage one another, we must visit and read each other’s posts!                                            
Romans 12:18 “If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone.” Amen, this is how I feel about my life. I want to live at peace with everyone, not just a few chosen ones. I would much rather be at peace in my relationships, than my relationships be in pieces!! Life is way to short, to constantly be angry at someone. Think of all the wasted time, and energy we waste being angry. Crazy!! This year, the greatest present you could give someone, is not a present, but, your actual presence in their life. Oh yea, that anger you have been holding onto so tightly, let go. Another wonderful gift to give someone this year, is your forgiveness, wrapped in great big hugs, and love.
