In Philippians 4:8 the bible says;  finally ,brothers(everyone included) ,whatever is true,whatever is honorable, whatever is just,whatever is pure,whatever is lovely,whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise,think about these things.
The bible says think because our actions are birth out of our as much as you think upon these things they become evident in your attitude, action or character. As a child of God do you witness to the truth or against it? Do you still engage In things that questions your faith? Do you promote peace amongst others or cause strife? How well do your words minister to souls?
A child of God is a mender.A mender is a person that alters things for the better,a mender correct's things that has gone or is going wrong ,a mender is Christlike in attitude. As a mender people should feel at ease around you and be at peace when they see wherever you are and whoever you come across should be better after a little chat or an encounter with you because a mender alters for the better.
Isaiah 61:1-7 is a typical description of the qualities or fruit you should exhibit as a mender. For you to graciously exhibit this fruit you must first have a relationship with God and allow His spirit to do the work in you,because for you to manifest as a mender you need the grace and the help of God.As a child of God you have been given the grace to reach out to others (irrespective of the tribe,color,nationality, background ,religion) without leaving them the same way you met them .you are to bring the good news of Christ to them because that is the first and sure foundation on which every other thing is are to bind the broken hearted by encouraging them every way possible,speaking words of hope to them ,encourage them to trust in the one who can make all things new.comfort those whose heart bleed in sorrow with your prayer and the word of God.proclaim liberty to captives ; there are many out there who have lost the way, not because they love what they do or who they have become but one thing led to another and there was no one to stand by them as a mender in that trying times and now you have been given an opportunity to touch such life ,my question is ;are you making good use of it? why not be that persons eye to see again ,be their hands to lead them back to calvary.That person just needs a little push,just a word from a graced mender and they will turn a new leave.There are many out there who need your prayer and follow up.let your heart felt prayer mend their lives back to God. What has your encounter with them done to their lives ,has it left them better or worse? Don't let their problem,challenge, or weakness become a topic for discussion rather step in and exhibit the Christlike quality of a mender.Talk to them,pray with them,encourage them,give them a helping hand.Don't discriminate or look down on them because this should never be seen in the life of a mender. Rather exhibit a mender's fruit(Christlike) which is humility, love ,godly counsel,pray for and with them,lend a helping hand. People shouldn't be scared to tell you how they feel or what their challenges are because of the fear of you being judgmental . A mender doesn't judge rather they allow their words and action become a cure to wounded soul.Help someone heal today.Encourage someone to be hopeful again .Give that person a helping hand not because the person can pay you in return. settling discords don't worsen them.
Let your light so shine before men that they may see your good works and glorify your father which is in heaven. As a mender you are a light to those In darkness.let people know you as a peace maker, as someone who exhibits Christlike quality.In every place ,at every moment  alter that situation ,circumstance, challenge, weakness,pain,burden,whatever negative situation in that life for the better.know from today that as a child of God you are a mender  so exhibit the Christlike quality graciously. You carry the mender's spirit, anointing and grace so think it,act it,be it and let lives be influenced positively.
Are you a mender ? If no, Make a quality decision to be one today.stop building popularity ,be an influence. Be a mender!
