Today is Human Rights Day which the United Nations designated as a day to raise awareness for the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
Coincidence they are on the same day? I think not.
It got me thinking: There are no coincidences with God rather God incidents.
I am so grateful that God used Dr. King so mightily. I am grateful there is a declaration of human rights to protect the lives of the innocent.
What are you grateful for and what are you doing to make life a wee bit kinder for your fellow man?
“God has designed each of us for an enthusiastic, purpose-driven life. He doesn’t want you merely existing each day. He wants you to experience abundant life! But you have an enemy. And he’s a thief who wants to steal the passion, purpose, and potential you were born with. Yet here is the good news: Jesus has already overcome our enemy. Through the cross, you and I have access to His abundant life. And we can live in it today!”*
That is what this season is all about. Yes, Jesus is the reason for the season.
“The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.” John 10.10
Be full of life.Have a grateful heart.
Live out your purpose with passion.
