Learning To Invest In Others

In summary of Romans 15:2 it says, “We should help others do what is right and build them up in the Lord.“

Bottom Line:
Help others do what is right, help grow their faith.

What this means to me:

A major goal in my life should be to help others do what is right.  I should help and encourage others to build their faith and thus become a people-builder.  This is a great gift that I can give to others that can last forever.  A key for me to to do this is to build them up using kindness on my part, giving them what they really need and not what I think they deserve.  I can use Jesus as my example.  Jesus did three things to build up the people in his life; he challenged, encouraged and spoke to them honestly.  He had challenged the people around him to be all God made them to be (not waste their lives.)  I too can challenge my family and friends to live beyond themselves and to discover their strengths / abilities.  I should look back and reflect on those who have helped me to discover my gifts and who had challenged me to develop and strengthen and use them.  I can play a critical role by helping the ones in my life as well.  I am ultimately meant to be a blessing to others.  Today I ask God to continue to guide me and help me be all he wants me to be and to make a difference in the lives of others.
