No More Negativity: Six (6) Scriptures Organized by Praisejamzblog to Help You Love, Uplift And Encourage Others || Read For Free

We all desire to be loved and respected; but many times, rather than build each other up, we’ll tear one another down. My brothers and sisters, this should not be.Here’s what the Bible says our attitude should be towards those around us:

Romans 12:15 (NIV)- “Rejoice with those who rejoice; mourn with those who mourn.” When someone gets a good break or runs into a golden opportunity, celebrate with them! And when someone is going through a tough time, be sympathetic. As Christians, we are to stand together with people through the good times and the bad.Philippians 2:3 (ESV)- “Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves.” We live to serve God through serving others. Use whatever the Lord has given you to bless someone else—be it money, cheerfulness, a learned skill, or an in-born talent.

John 13:35 (NKJV)- “By this all will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.” Show love in all that you do, for whomever you do it. Love those in the church as well as outside of it, for to this we were called.

Luke 6:31 (ESV)- “And as you wish that others would do to you, do so to them.” You wouldn’t wish for others to write snide comments about you on social media, or disassociate with you the moment they disagreed with your opinion—so don’t treat others in this way. Reflect the positive attitudes you would like to see in those around you.

Ephesians 4:29 (NIV)- “Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen.” The words you utter about people, whether you know them personally or not, should never be detrimental. Speak words of encouragement to those who may not hear it enough, and let your speech be seasoned with grace (Colossians 4:6).

Romans 13:9 (NLT)- “For the commandments say, ‘You must not commit adultery. You must not murder. You must not steal. You must not covet.’ These—and other such commandments—are summed up in this one commandment: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’” Love people the way we all pray to be loved—the way God loves us: unconditionally, sacrificially, compassionately and graciously.

To sum it all up, be sympathetic, humble and meek, loving, understanding, and speak words that uplift.In this, God is pleased.
