14 Brothers and sisters, we are asking you to warn those who don’t want to work. Cheer up those who are shy. Help those who are weak. Put up with everyone. 15 Make sure that nobody pays back one wrong act with another. Always try to be kind to each other and to everyone else. 16 Always be joyful. 17 Never stop praying. 18 Give thanks no matter what happens. God wants you to thank him because you believe in Christ Jesus.
~1st Thessolonians 5: 14 - 18, NIRV
I was just sitting here thinking how difficult it is sometimes to do that, but kept saying to myself, "Lord, thank you for the rain." I may not always appreciate it, but someone else may have surely needed it. Even at 45 I'm still learning!
