Some Uplifting Be’s in the Bible

Lately I’ve been consuming lots of the BEE product. Honey with ginger and apple cider vinegar is the first thing on my daily menu. But it takes time to combat a respiratory infection. My friend Iris called from Florida saying she has been very sick with the flue. Both of us, in the same boat, prayed for each other. Prayer with a fellow Christian is more soothing than honey, don’t you think? It’s very uplifting!

The Bible is full of Be’suplifting Be’s. While consuming the bee product for my physical body, here are some Be’s to be thinking about for my spiritual well-being.

  • Be strong and courageous.
  • Be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect.
  • Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful.
  • Be on your guard against all kinds of greed.
  • Be devoted to one another in brotherly love.
  • Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.
  • Be completely humble and gentle.
  • Be patient, bearing with one another in love.
  • Be kind and compassionate to one another.
  • Be imitators of God, therefore, as dearly loved children.
  • Be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power.
  • Be alert and always keep on praying for all the saints.
  • Be thankful.
  • Be wise in the way you act toward outsiders.
  • Be self-controlled.
  • Be patient with everyone.
  • Be joyful always.
  • Be kind to everyone.
  • Be hospitable.
  • Be subject to rulers and authorities.
  • Be obedient.
  • Be ready to do whatever is good.
  • Be active in sharing your faith.
  • Be content with what you have.
  • Be strengthened by grace.

These are just a few of the Be’s but enough to think about today. Be strengthened by the grace of God. Do you need uplifting? Call someone who you can pray together with, then both of you will be uplifted. May this BE a wonderful day for you!

About kelund

My name is Kerstin Anderas-Lundquist. I was born in Sweden to Per & Brita Anderas, on March 6, 1946. In 1948 we left to begin a missionary life in Chile; in 1956 we moved on to Peru. On May 1, 1969 I married an all-Swedish guy from Karslkrona: Bengt Göran Emanuel Lundquist. God blessed us with two daughters: Eva-Marie Elizabeth and Ruth Carina. We served as missionaries in Peru and Bolivia. In 1988 we moved to the United States to work at Life Publishers in Miami, Florida. I was to assist in developing the line of Sunday School Curriculm in Spanish known as Vida Nueva. I live in Springfield, Missouri, and am retired from work at the Assemblies of God Headquarters. My husband and daughter Eva-Marie have been promoted to Heaven. Carina is married to Thom Cole and they have given me four gourgeous grandchildren, even five (teen-age John). I will be writing about my life, past and present, blended with visions for the future. My deepest desire is to spread the “seed of love”–inspiration to serve God and our neighbors with love and compassion.
