We all face trials and sometimes we use those as an excuse to be less than what we should be. I like this caption for all of those tempting moments.
May my heart be kind...... it's easy to be nice to pleasant people but the true test of kindness is when you're confronted with rudeness. We are supposed to turn the other cheek when insulted, but that's easier said than done. Praying for your persecutors is the best way to be a kind blessing to them.
My mind fierce....... we are to always be ready to give an answer when someone questions our faith. You must know why you believe what you do and have discernment about what you hear that contradicts those beliefs.
My spirit brave.... 'For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline.' With God on our side, what do we have to fear? We should be bold and brave, so as to not yield to the corruptness of this world and it's views.
May your life be a reflection of your love of Christ in your heart, mind and soul. From odb.org, may the strength of your actions be as strong as your words.
