No astonishing, weighty, ground-breaking insights from me today. Just a humble confession that once again the Spirit has taken the Word and spoken into my day.
Don’t just pretend to love others. Really love them.
(Romans 12:9 NLT)
And what will I look like today if I really love others?
I will be patient and kind.
Jealousy and boasting and rudeness can have no place in my conversations or my thoughts. Stomp those impulses! Squash them before they have a chance to rise!
I will not have to have my own way. (ouch!)
Holding grudges and giving way to irritations can no longer be part of my life (banished, like cream sticks).
I’ll always be rooting for the good, the truth, the right.
And I’ll never give up or lose faith and hope!
I want to really love. I want a new heart and a new mind.
Transform my loving, Holy Spirit.
