LMA Victims vs. Victors Statement #5
Victims take credit - Victors accept their responsibility.
Victims have a tendency to take credit for accomplishments (or perceived accomplishments) while avoiding their responsibilities. Real victors share in accomplishments and are able to be held accountable for shortcomings. BE a victor!
Hebrews 10:24-25 (TPT): Discover creative ways to encourage others and to motivate them toward acts of compassion, doing beautiful works as expressions of love. This is not the time to pull away and neglect meeting together, as some have formed the habit of doing because we need each other! In fact, we should come together even more frequently, eager to encourage and urge each other onward as we anticipate that day dawning.
Hebrews 10:24-25 (Mirror): Let us also think of creative ways by which we can influence one another to find inspired expression in doing things that benefit others. Good actions give voice and volume to the love of God. (Let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works.” RSV.) 10:25 In the light of our free access to the Father, let us extend that embrace to one another. Our gatherings are no longer a repetition of tradition but an essential fellowship where we remind one another of our true identity. Let us do so with greater urgency now the day has dawned in our understanding. (The prophetic shadow has been replaced by the light of day.)
Find creative ways to encourage one another. BE compassionate! BE a Victor!
