Things You Might Need to Remember Today

Many months ago I made a list for myself of things I need to remember as I go throughout my day. I've revised it slightly for you, but here are some things you might need to remember today:

  1. You don’t need to defend yourself.
  2. Don’t say anything in the emotion of the moment.
  3. It’s not your job to convict others of what they are doing wrong.
  4. You aren’t the general manager of the universe.
  5. You are more than your job.
  6. Trust God.
  7. You don’t have to say everything you are thinking.
  8. God knows.
  9. He is in control.
  10. It doesn’t matter what someone else says, always take the high road.
  11. People will remember how you treat others far longer than they will remember what you accomplished.
  12. Breathe.
  13. Always err on the side of grace.
  14. It’s all about love. 
  15. "By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another" (John 13:35).
