Morning Thought: I cannot control how people treat me, but I can be proactive about staying connected to Jesus. My success is not based on what others do to me. It’s based on abiding in Jesus and how I treat others. Jesus said, “I am the grapevine; you are the branches. Those who dwell with me – intimately – are those I intimately dwell with. The ones closely connected to me bear much fruit. Realize that without me, you have no power to produce anything” (John 15:5, IT).
