Oh Lord, help me to love one another as You do on earth. May I learn to see people as You do. So many people are treated unkindly and that needs to stop. So do a wok in me like never before. Help me to see every people’s worth, and not as my flesh sees them. We often find ourselves very busy in this world and tend to be to ourselves when other people are suffering and need our help. We also judge people so often before we really meet them. I can just imagine how people are feeling after we have made them feel so terrible inside. These are the things that are I pray stops. There is already so much ridicule happening in the lives of non-believers, and I pray that we can be a light instead. And if this is happening behind closed doors with people in the church, I pray that they will repent and get right with You, oh Lord. Only by coming to You often in Bible study, and prayer, can You teach us how to live a holy and righteous life. Not a religious life, but a changed life for You. And as we step foot in this darkened world, help us to begin to treat the younger generation as our brothers and sisters. Even the older generation as our father and mother. If we meet a person who is widowed, that we will be so respectful to them and their loss. You can help us do all this, of which we will make a difference in this world. I trust in You, God. I love You. Amen.
1 Timothy 5:1-4 (KJV)
1 Rebuke not an elder, but intreat him as a father; and the younger men as brethren;
2 The elder women as mothers; the younger as sisters, with all purity.
3 Honour widows that are widows indeed.
4 But if any widow have children or nephews, let them learn first to shew piety at home, and to requite their parents: for that is good and acceptable before God.
It is important, as Christians. to show love for the elderly and young men and women. We also love and help those who are widows.
