Recently, my kids picked up a congestion bug and they’ve been hacking along the phlegm spectrum. This started with one of my boys and the other two caught this bug. In the last several days, I have felt some of these symptoms trying to creep into my breathing, so I’ve been vigilante to take extra vitamins and drink more water.
Usually, we don’t think of things that are contagious in very positive ways. We don’t want to “catch” the cold, flu, yellow fever, etc. But let’s also consider that sometimes, we can also “catch” another person’s insecurity, fear, arrogance and other such distasteful traits. Instead, let’s make intentional decisions to be gracious, patient, compassionate, gentle, truthful (Fruits of the Spirit) and just maybe other people will “catch” some healthy traits for our communications and relationships! Let’s allow Holy Spirit to work life and health into our souls so that we are contagions of genuine love!
