Am I My Sister’s Keeper?

I used to work at a non-profit organization called House of Hope where I was dealing with hurting teenagers. I would mentor these young girls on a spiritual level, discipline them if needed, and many other requirements. One evening we were sitting in the living room and talking amongst ourselves, and I kept hearing one of the teenagers repetitively saying, “I am my sister’s keeper.” bragging as if she knew the meaning; her actions never even backed up those words that she would say over and over. A coworker of mine finally questioned her, “Do you know what it really means to be a sister’s keeper?” The teenager sat there in silence pondering on what to say. My coworker then explained to her the spiritual definition of being a “Sister’s Keeper”. As she explained to the young girl the meaning, I thought to myself I couldn’t have agreed more. As the years have gone by, I’ve learned that there is so much more to being a sister’s keeper than just holding each other accountable.

Here is my personal list that I believe makes a “True sister’s Keeper.”

  • Giving when it is needed. Proverbs 21:26 – “Some people are always greedy for more, but the godly love to give.”

 

  • Supporting each other’s dreams. Philippians 2:3-4 – “Do nothing from selfishness or empty conceit, but with humility of mind regard one another as more important than yourselves; do not merely look out for your own personal interests, but also for the interests of others.”

 

  • Constantly praying for one another, not only in time of need. Ephesians 6 :18 – “Pray in the Spirit at all times and on every occasion. Stay alert and be persistent in your prayers for all believers everywhere.”

 

  • Admiring each other, not envying each other. Ephesians 4:2- “Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love.”

 

  • Encourage each other with kind words. 1 Thessalonians 5:11 – “Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing.”

 

  • Correcting each other when one does wrong. Galatians 6:1- “Dear brothers and sisters, if another believer is overcome by some sin, you who are godly should gently and humbly help that person back onto the right path. And be careful not to fall into the same temptation yourself.”

So ask yourself this, “Are you your Sister’s Keeper?”

Hello my lovely readers, I guess I should do a quick bio about me. Well, for one I am not your average woman I make living Holy look fun. Yes! I am a believer but, I AM NOT PERFECT nor do I pretend to be. I love my city Kissimmee, Florida was raised here all my life I rep it like I do with my nationality, Haitian-American. Don't like long walks on the beach because Florida is too hot and the birds here are mean, but, I enjoy watching the sunrise on my rooftop. My two favorite things that God created are the Moon and Stars, notice I didn't say humans? I am totally kidding, my love for people is deeper than my dimples. I have many passions one of them is doing missionary work, I enjoy the company of people from different cultures; I also admire photographing nature places I've traveled too and priceless moments. On July 28, 1992 was the best day that ever happens to my mother that is why she named me after her, Myriam Norgaisse. Thanks mother now I have to live the rest of my life getting our mail mixed up. Well, that was somewhat of a short bio. Enjoy my blog & more.

  1. This is definitely how we should be supporting each other. I would love to see women bonding and loving each other more! We’ve really gotten away from it but it’s not right!
