1We who are strong ought to bear with the failings of the weak and not to please ourselves. 2Each of us should please his neighbor for his good, to build him up. 3For even Christ did not please himself but, as it is written: “The insults of those who insult you have fallen on me.

Lord, I don’t know if I am strong, or weak.  After all this time with You, I should be very strong.  But life sends me some small trial, and I am weak and crumble.  Whether weak or strong, I see I need to think of other people ahead of myself.  That is not normal for this world, or for me.  Please Lord, guide me so I know how to help others be strong.  Guide others so they can help me be strong.  And most imporant Lord, help me be patient and kind  with all those around me so they can see Your life in me.  *Romans15*
