Somebody's Not Doing His Job!

In a Charlie Brown comic strip, Lucy asked Charlie Brown, “Why are we put on earth?”

“To make others happy,” he answered.

“I don’t think that I’m making anyone very happy,” confessed Lucy. “And nobody’s making me very happy.”

Then she shouted, “Somebody’s not doing his job!”

In our relationships with others, however unkind they are, we must practice the same love that our Lord practices with us. We must show them their worth, their value, their importance and their significance. We must always let others know that God’s love is the glue that keeps us in contact with Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord.

Such love is a sign of strength, not weakness; courage not complacency.

Today, I am determined to do my job and make others happy. Care to join me?

Prayer: Heavenly Father, help us to follow the example of Your Son, our Savior, Jesus Christ, and show others what true love is all about. May we live every day of our lives bringing hope and help, honor and happiness to others. This we ask in Your precious name. Amen.

Scripture for Today: 1 Peter 3:8,9
