Devotions from Judy’s heart

This morning as we went to the continental breakfast at our hotel there was only one other person there at 6 am. He was a man from India and engaged us in conversation. It wasn’t long before we found out he was the son of a Church of God pastor and grew up in India. What impressed me was his warm and sweet spirit. He wasn’t overbearing but so full of love. When I got back to our room I read from Colossians and several phrases stood out from chapter 3 and 4…”Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts….Be thankful….Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom…do all in the name of the Lord Jesus giving thanks to God the Father….Be watchful and thankful…Make the most of every opportunity. Let your conversation be always full of grace seasoned with salt.”

I felt like this man uses the opportunities God gives and does so with grace. As we said good–bye to him, it isn’t his words so much that will stay with me but his grateful, humble spirit and the aroma of Christ that he exuded. Let us make the most of every opportunity to share Him with others and do it with gentleness and grace.
