Following After Peace with Word Art Wednesday

In Romans 14:19, Scripture admonishes us to, "Let us therefore follow after the things which make for peace, and things wherewith one may edify another." Such a simple command, but one that, for us humans, can be so difficult to fulfill! As humans, we are naturally competitive, and there is an instinctive drive inside us to put our own needs and even our own ways above those of others. What a blessing, then, that as spiritual beings, and with God's grace, we have the power to overcome that. Moreover, when we pursue ways of being and doing that prioritize the needs of others before our own, things that make for peace and build up others, the process builds us up, too! When you care for others, they care for you, and when you put positive out, you get positive back. How cool is that?!?

This Scripture verse is the free word art by Karen Murray this week at Word Art Wednesday, where we are blessed to be sponsoring. As always, the theme there is to make something using a Scripture verse or encouraging sentiment. A couple of our designers were inspired to use the offered verse in their cards this week. Have a look, and don't forget to hop over to Word Art Wednesday and snag this beautiful word art for yourself!
