Hey there and Happy Tuesday Lovebugs!
Do you ever have those moments when you just wish that people would act right? When you feel like you are doing everything possible to act godly but people still behave in a way that tests your salvation? My Lord! It’s like Lord, what is their problem?!? This morning, God taught me a thing or two about unconditional love. He broke it down how He wants us to show people Him by our actions and behavior. When people are loving towards us, we are to be loving towards them. When people are not loving towards us, we are STILL to be loving towards them. This has been challenging to me at times, I admit, because let’s face it, who wants to be nice to someone who’s not being nice to us! And when people are being mean to us, what are we quick to say: YOU NEED JESUS! And that is exactly why God chooses us to show people His ways... because we ALL need Jesus! But how are we to act like Jesus if we are not shown how to behave? How are we to behave like the Lord if we don’t have a human example?
Lovies, God does call us to do some challenging stuff but it’s not impossible. Even though it hurts at the time, we can rest assure that when we choose God’s way of doing things, He is pleased. And who doesn’t want to please God! I learned a HUGE lesson this morning and I’m grateful to God for it. Even though it stings temporarily to repay evil with good, in the long run, God will get the glory AND we shall reap a reward!
Keep choosing love,
Three things will last forever—faith, hope, and love—and the greatest of these is love." 1 Corinthians 13:13 (NLT)
