Some of the things I've learned through the years is this..If you're in need of a friend..show kindness toward someone..be there for them and they will be there for you!
Another thing is when you're feeling depressed in your life..make someone else's day, even forcing yourself to smile can help someone and at the same time it can also be helping you!
If you're needing love..show others the love of Christ that you hold deep inside of yourself!
If you're looking for forgiveness..show mercy to others when they've wronged you!
If you have low self-esteem..encourage someone and treat someone special!
Whatever it may be..give, love, be merciful, show kindness, be a friend, have faith in other people's abilities and they will have faith in you too!
Reach out to someone and pick them up out of the pit that they are in! Someday when you are beat down and feeling defeated..someone will return the favor and help you back on your feet again!
Even when others are hurting you or have hurt you in the past..keep the faith and hold on to that smile of yours..because that's going to be the thing that will help you rise up out of that situation you're in..if somehow you can keep that smile when someone else is about to give up..that's going to be enough to help them to realize that they have a reason to live! That smile can bring life and hope to them again!
1 Peter 4:6-11
"For this is why the gospel was preached even to those who are dead, that though judged in the flesh the way people are, they might live in the spirit the way God does.
The end of all things is at hand; therefore be self- controlled and sober- minded for the sake of your prayers. Above all, keep loving one another earnestly, since love covers a multitude of sins. Show hospitality to one another without grumbling. As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God's varied grace: whoever speaks, as one who speaks oracles of God; whoever serves, as one who serves by the strength that God supplies—in order that in everything God may be glorified through Jesus Christ. To him belong glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen."
