Father, we’re reminded in the book of Romans that no one lives unto himself. We affect others both by what we do and what we don’t do; what we believe and what we don’t believe; what we say and what we don’t say. We want to be a conduit of Your grace and mercy to others along life’s way. We don’t want to bring them down but lift them up in refreshing ways so that they are strengthened and encouraged by our presence. There will always be those who tear down but we want to build up others according to their need. With Your help, Father, we can be a blessing to those You bring in our path. We pray this in Jesus’ name. Amen.
