Charity doth not behave itself unseemly

for-tcms-1

This series of posts is about the pure love of Christ is called Charity.  We read about this love in the Bible, 1 Corinthians, Chapter 13.  In the next few days, watch for posts about this vital attribute of Christ.  When we seek to emulate Him by loving as he loved, our heart changes, we are happier, and each of us can be a more positive INfluence on others.  This is one way we can create positive generational change.

Charity, the pure love of Christ, doth not behave itself unseemly–1 Corinthians 13: 5

 “Etiquette and good manners are based on respect for people’s feelings, opinions, property, and time.”1

“It is often easier to show respect and tolerance to acquaintances—or even strangers—than to those who are closest to us. When we are tired, ill, or under stress, do we still speak kindly to a disobedient child, a thoughtless spouse, or an angry roommate? The Apostle Peter counseled, ‘Be ye all of one mind, having compassion one of another … be courteous.’” (1 Pet. 3:8.) (Ensign, April 1988)

C- 4 Winter, Talk About It TuesdayHere at CarolynCalton.com you will find spiritual messages of Hope and INspiration for TODAY’s ChangeMakers™. I help men and women turn stress, anxiety, anger and dysfunction to hope, direction, happiness and peace.

This Talk About It Tuesday message goes along with our ReNEW YOU Ten Minute Treasure INspirations topic of the month which is SERVICE.  Topics are selected from the Principles and Attributes listed in my ebook JOURNALriffic.

A THOUGHT TO PONDER

When we serve others with a sincere and honest heart, we are also in the service of God–representing His love and light in the world.  Other qualities of character we’ve developed through our experiences also contribute to our contributions such as faith, virtue, knowledge, temperance, patience, brotherly kindness, charity (the pure love of Christ), humility and diligence.

How should we serve?

We benefit ourselves and others the most when we ask God for His insight and guidance through prayer, believe we will receive an answer, and then we receive and take action on the guidance and INspiration that is provided.  After that, we trust.  As stated in Proverbs 3: 5-6

 ¶Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.

 In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.

REMEMBER
The choices we make TODAY have a ripple effect and can influence generations. As you ponder this thought, remember, YOURS is the spark that unites generations of power! By developing attributes of character that contribute to us helping ourselves and others and not hurting ourselves and others, we CAN change the story line of our lives and make a difference in the world.

It doesn’t matter how big or small a difference. A difference is a difference. It’s by small and simple things that great things come to pass. We influence one life and a time. We are on a quest to follow the 3 Guiding Purposes of TODAY’s ChangeMakers, which are:

1) Be happy and live a purpose-filled life today as TODAY’s ChangeMaker.
2) Prepare courageously and confidently for the future- come what may.
3) Glean wisdom from the past—rather than stay stuck in it.

If you have these desires and are willing to take action to create a happy purpose-filled life, then YOU are TODAY’s ChangeMaker.

That Families May Be Blessed

Henry B. Eyring is an amazing man.  He has been an example to me of humble faith and devotion to God and family.  He spoke at the Vatican Summit where faith leaders discussed marriage.  The points he listed at the end of what he said are possible to achieve  if two people are committed to walking together in love.  With faith in God and a commitment to one’s spouse, generations of children can be benefitted and blessed.

I am also a witness of how a single parent can press forward in faith and still influence children for good.  We still need to know how to be faithful IN family settings and, by listening to his words, we can help our children gain insight and understanding, too.  If you are one that has carried heartache and heartbreak–even from childhood–his words may help you make sense, clearly, of what was missing or what went wrong.

Let’s change the  trend of destructive thoughts, words and actions that we carry into marriage and relationships.  Henry B. Eyring suggests how it is possible.  I encourage you to listen to his words.

You’re Not Alone

My heart goes out to those who are entrapped in the vicious cycles of addiction, suffering and pain.  Christ is the Master Healer.  It’s interesting to me that we try everything to get rid of the physical and emotional feelings that distrub us, yet often forget that it’s our Elder Brother, Jesus Christ (son of God the Father-our creator), who makes the way for us to be healed spiritually so that joy and happiness can once again be ours.  It’s my hope that this video reaches those who are forlorn, unhappy and seeking the way back to being whole and healed.

Thank you to Betsy Love who pointed out this video on Facebook.
