Word 4 Today December 18, 2011

IT ALL HANGS ON LOVE.

If you want to acquire the key to an abundant life, full of joy and happiness, it’s really pretty simple—love!  Everything hangs on this one principle, love!  Jesus said in Matthew 22:37–40: “You shall lovethe Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind,’ This is the first and great commandment, And the second is like it; ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself,’ On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets.”

It may be a national epidemic, but it seems people don’t put much priority on loving God, making friends, and being good neighbors anymore.  Are they just too busy?

PRAYER FOR TODAY

Dear Lord, it is clear when we walk in love, we are in Your perfect will.  Lord, I know on my own, I do not have the capacity to love as You want us to, but by Your Spirit, I can make the decision to love others as You love us.

THOUGHT FOR TODAY

Our ability to love others comes as a result of our willingness to accept God’s love for us.
