Happy Sunday, dear friend. I want to share with you a verse from the Bible that I read this morning. It is from Proverbs 21:21, and it says:

“Whoever pursues righteousness and kindness will find life, righteousness, and honour.”

I understood that I should always strive to do what is right and good, not only for myself but also for others; to treat everyone with respect, compassion, and generosity, regardless of their background, beliefs, or circumstances; and to seek to make a positive difference in the world, even if it is small and unnoticed.

By doing so, the Scriptures assure me that I will find life, righteousness, and honour in the eyes of God and people. I will enjoy the blessings of peace, joy, and fulfilment that come from living a purposeful and meaningful life. I will also earn the respect and admiration of those who appreciate my values and actions.

Of course, pursuing righteousness and kindness is not always easy. Sometimes, it requires sacrifice, courage, and perseverance. Sometimes, it may seem like the world is against us, and we are tempted to give up or compromise. Sometimes, we may feel like we are not making any progress or impact, and we wonder if it is worth it.

But I want to encourage you today to keep pursuing righteousness and kindness, no matter what. Remember that God sees your heart and your efforts, and He will reward you in due time. Remember that you are not alone, but you have a community of like-minded people who support you and cheer you on. Remember that you are making a difference, even if you don’t see it right away.

And most importantly, remember that you are loved. Loved by God, who gave His Son for you. Loved by me, who writes these words for you. Loved by many others who appreciate you and your gifts.

So diligently pursue righteousness and kindness together, and you shall find a happy life, righteousness, and honour in the process.

Thank you for reading this email, and thank you for being part of my journey. I hope you have a wonderful Sunday, and I look forward to hearing from you soon.

With ❤️
