Our challenge verse this week for the Say it With Scripture Challenge at the Sweet 'n Sassy Connection is Hebrews 13:1, "Let brotherly love continue."
I recently read a friend's status on Facebook and it truly made my heart sad. I don't know all the details but apparently something happened with one of her children. Other folks heard part of the story, started talking about it without having the complete details, and since they had the story wrong, her child was really hurt. The sad part? All the folks involved were Christians. It's been said that Christians are the only ones that shoot their own wounded. This should not be. We should support and encourage each other...even when things go wrong. No we can't condone wrong-doing, but if we remember "there but for the grace of God go I" we'll treat each other with more gentleness. So this week, let's focus on loving our brothers (and sisters) in Christ and treat each other a bit more kindly.
I thought this image was perfect for this verse because one of the birds is different from the others. How often are we critical of things that are different? I've been under the weather this week so I took a little help by using one of the SNSS pre-colored images. I used the SNSS Lacey Eyelet Border Die for a little interest along the bottom of the card. Some pearls and faux stitches added the finishing touches.
