Gaining Altitude — Growth Opportunities for the Week

Chaplain (Maj.) John M. Von Almen
412th TW chaplain

Through our character – an opportunity to reflect on important issues in our community
As children we hear, “Sticks and stones can break your bones but words will never hurt you.” As we grow older we find that words can hurt worse than physical injuries. As hurtful as some things are to hear we get to choose what we believe. Eleanor Roosevelt said, “No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.” Be careful how you speak to others as you can’t take your words back and choose not to let hurtful words ‘break’ you. Instead see if there is anything to learn from them and then let them go and move on.

Through our prayers — an opportunity to pray for the needs of our community
Loving God you desire to speak words of life and healing to us. Help us to have hearts, minds, and ears open wide to hear your life-giving messages.
