Thank you for being here. You guys know I’d like to make it quick because I value your time. Today I’m going to share with you how do we respond to people who are hurting. You’ve all heard the saying, “Hurting people hurt people“. I just want to share a quick Bible verse and my thoughts about it.

In Luke 6: 31 it says: “Here is a simple rule of thumb for behaviour: ask yourself what you want people to do for you then grab the initiative and do it for them. If you only love the lovable, do you expect a pat on the back? Run-of-the-mill sinners do that. If you only help those who help you, do you expect a medal? If you only give for what you hope to get out of it, do you think that is charity? Even the stingiest of pawnbrokers do that. I tell you, love your enemies, help and give without expecting a return. You’ll never,  I promise, regret it. Live out this God-created identity the way our Father lives towards us, generously and graciously, even when we’re at our worst our Father is kind; you be kind.”

Thank you so much for inviting your followers, if you’re just joining the broadcast my name is Melodee Forbes, I’m the founder of Confident Not Perfect. As I shared earlier on this scope, when I was 23years-old my mom died of cancer and I didn’t take the very best care of myself after she died. But three years ago, I made some different decisions that have increased my joy and peace, and decreased my stress.

I’m sharing about how to respond to people that are hurting. I shared with you guys Luke 6:31 – 36, it talks about doing unto others as we want to have done to ourselves, treating people with kindness even when they aren’t kind to us. There are seven billion people in this planet, so many people who are going through different things and it’s so easy when we encounter someone who acts in anger or acts inconsiderate, or they’re rude, it’s easy to lash back because they deserve it, right? If you don’t want to get it then don’t give it, right? But the reality is, often times we have to… and I don’t what to say be a bigger person because we all had times when we felt down, but be considerate and show love. At the end of the day it all boils down to love. You never know someone’s story or their journey.

For those of you watching, I know you’re kind and you’re givers, and you really value people because we’re attracted to each other. I’m not saying to let people take advantage of you, or for you to be a doormat. What I am saying is to give grace, and to give mercy, and to be kind, because that’s what it’s all about. You cannot change any human-being, you can’t change anyone. You can’t change your husband, friend, co-worker, your boss or your employees, but you can control how you respond. The goal is to respond in love and kindness, and treating someone how you’d want to be treated even if they’re not being the most kind and generous.

I hope this has encouraged you. Thank you so much for inviting your followers and for sharing this. I hope you enjoyed it!
