Jan.11 – The most important trip you can make is meeting someone halfway. Henry Boyle


Henry Boyle was a politician in the eighteenth century. His quote sounds good and probably won him some votes at that time. His sincereity was proven by his actions to his constituents.

Where’s the Hope?  I believe meeting halfway is the minimal effort we should give each other. Ideally I should always want to give over and above, but I reason and find excuses to be stingy when I could do more. Then I’m convicted and realize I’m being prideful  and remind myself to treat others the way I want to be treated.

On the other hand our spiritual life shouldn’t be given a halfway effort.

“God has given each of you some special abilities; be sure to use them to help each other, passing on to others God’s many kinds of blessings.”  1 Peter 4:10 (LB)

Don’t be stingy with your blessings! Meet everyone more than halfway!

Grace be with you.


About bshiveofhope

I have been lead to hold a number of differnt occupations over my working years. Surprisingly, most of which I could have never forcast for myself. They include- Nurse, wife, mother, florist, nana, writer, custodian, and now blogger. With these vocations have come many life experiences. I love catchy words and phrases.They are easy to remember and when shared can be a source of encouragement and hope. The meanings are not new their counterparts can be found in the reliable book of life, the Bible. We were made for community so let's build each other up with hope and encouragment.
