Thinking of Others

That you also may know my affairs and
how I am doing, Tychicus, a beloved brother and
faithful minister in the Lord,
will make all things known to you;…
that he may comfort your hearts.
Ephesians 6:21-22

Don’t you love it when you receive a “thinking of you” greeting card? I purchased an entire package of these cards to keep on hand for encouraging those I know who are downhearted or suffering in some way.

Even though he was suffering in prison, the apostle Paul wrote an encouraging letter to the believers in Ephesus. He chose to send the note via the hands of a trusted friend, Tychicus, who would take Paul’s personal greetings to the people and update them on how he was doing.

Are you thinking of others today? Even if you’re facing difficult circumstances, you can share your heart with people by focusing on the blessings that come to you from God the Father and your Lord Jesus Christ, including:

  • peace in your life circumstances
  • love that is unconditional and constant
  • faith that is strong and unswerving
  • grace and myriad other blessings

Lord, help me to think of others and to share Your love with them so they too can experience the countless blessings You give. May I hold tightly to Your promises and the great gifts of Your peace, love, and grace. Amen.

Power in Prayer

by Elizabeth George April 02, 2024

There are few things that can change a marriage the way prayer can. While I was an associate pastor, a couple came to my office for marriage counseling. After we pinpointed several areas of concern in their marriage that needed their attention, I asked the husband to commit the couple’s desires to the Lord. As the man finished praying, I looked up to discover that his wife was crying. She explained through her tears that this was the first time in ten years of marriage that they had prayed together as a couple!
