BUT THE FRUIT OF THE SPIRIT IS?  LOVE

Just about everything we need to know about love, the Apostle Paul wrote in one paragraph.  Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; does not behave rudely; does not seek its own; is not provoked, thinks no evil; does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; bears all things; believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.  Love never fails.  1Corinthians 13:4-8.  If we are ever to live a successful, victorious and abundant life we must first learn how to receive the love of God.  Secondly, when we receive the love of God, we must learn to give it away.  The nature of God is love and He shared that love with us and now we are to take that love and share it with others.

PRAYER 4 TODAY

Lord, today by an act of my free will, I choose to be affectionate and giving to as many people as possible.  I will be friendly, asking nothing in return.  I will be nice to people even if they are not nice to me.  Walking in love is a choice and today, I choose to love.

THOUGHT 4 TODAY

When we understand God’s love, we will understand our need to love.
