“All who are with me send greetings to you. Greet those who love us in the faith. Grace be with you all” (Titus 3:15).
Sometimes I think we get things messed up. Greet those who are in the faith. We cannot be all things to all people, so don’t be. Live in the truth that the Holy Spirit will guide you in the things you need to do. Do be friendly and open but remember that love is not just about making other people feel good, it is also about doing what is right. May you now and always abide in the grace and mercy of our Lord.
Holy Spirit, You know my heart and all that is needed in me. Guide me into the life where I am gracious to others as You have been gracious to me. As St. Paul instructed Titus, so also, let me receive the instruction You give me. Help me to put into practice these things which You are teaching me. Guide me in the upward way of eternal life that I may grow to be like Christ.
Thank You, Jesus, for leading the way. Help me learn by Your example to do things the way I see You doing them. Guide me in this journey of becoming like You. Through all that comes, may I be found to be faithful, greeting others in Your love and by Your grace. Through all that may come, may I now and forever look to You as the model for my life as I learn to be godly like You. Amen.
