Let no debt remain outstanding, except the continuing debt to love one another, …Romans 13:8
Just 4 little letters packed with so much power! How can that be? Maybe because LOVE is the reason God created the world? Maybe because LOVE is the reason when we so bitterly disappoint HIM, HE doesn’t annihilate us? Maybe because LOVE is the reason He willingly sacrificed the one and only perfect lamb, His only son Jesus to redeem us?
So what does your life say about how you feel about LOVE? Is it full of examples of how you show love to others? Is it conditional or unconditional? Is it seasonal or continual? Do you pick and choose whom you will love?
God says LOVE! For this is the message you heard from the beginning: We should love one another. 1John 3:11
Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. 1John 4:11
Personal Application: Ask God to show you any areas or people in your life where you might not be loving well. Look for ways every day to show love to everyone you come in contact with. Start with a smile or a wave!
Home Application: Sometimes our love is most lacking at home with those we love most. Talk as a family about ways you can best show love to each other and then to those outside of your family.
So, what will you choose to do?
