Everything

2 Peter 1:3

Everything we need. When we know Jesus, we don’t need to know anything else to live a life devoted to justice, mercy, love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.

Remember that. Remember that when you read angry social media posts so you do not respond in kind (pointing at myself, here). Remember that when stuck at home for the millionth day with cranky kids and work deadlines (even more when the cranky kid is you). Remember that when heated arguments among your friends threaten relationships. Remember that everytime you feel ambushed for your opinions. Remember that when you feel self- righteous about your opinions.

God has given you everything you need. His power (not yours, not denominations, not political parties) calls us to Him for His glory and His excellence. Walk worthy of that call (Ephesians 4).
