We try to do too much

Trying to save the planet leaves us frustrated, angry, bitter and in despair.
Trying to compel other people turn to Jesus will do the same thing.
These jobs are too big for us; leave them to God.
We can be kind to others because of the love of God n our hearts.
We can respond peacefully to other people’s anger.
We can forgive others when they do us wrong.
We can tell of our own failures and how God forgave us.
We can praise God openly for what He has done for us.
We can explain how trusting Jesus enables us to live with hope.
These are little things, but they do more to make the world a better place than any of the big things we may try to do.
