Scripture: Ephesians 4:29-32 NRSV
Sermon: Take Time for Others

We live in a world that tells us to think of ourselves and our needs first, but as Christians, we must take time for others, caring for them as Christ does for us. Showing love to others and being kind is our Christ-like attitude which is within us and it must be shared with all. 
We are busy people. Of course over the past 8 months or so that has changed some, but we certainly can easily find ways to fill our days and spend our time.
Last Sunday I began a short sermon series on “Time” and how important it is to make time for God. Today let’s look at how we take time for others as we read from Ephesians 4:29-32. This takes a conscious effort because if we are not careful, we will care more and spend more time on ourselves. The Apostle Paul gives us some wonderful ways to help us think more about others and how to treat one another. I hope you are spending a little more time with God these days, and I hope it shows in how you take time for others.

And remember, God loves you and so do I.
