THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:
JUST KEEP LOVING AND BEING GOOD TO THEM
It’s easy to write off someone because they don’t BELIEVE as we do, they’re making poor DECISIONS, or they’re AGAINST what we stand for. Too often we try to MAKE them believe, but SOME things don’t HAPPEN overnight. Their heart may not be OPEN yet, but at the right time God will SOFTEN their heart. Will you keep sowing seeds of LOVE in that friend who shows no sign of CHANGING? Will you keep loving that FAMILY member who says they don’t BELIEVE. Will you keep PRAYING for that coworker who RIDICULES believers?
Jesus said your LOVE for one another will prove you are His FOLLOWER. It’s not by your DOCTRINE, not by how many SCRIPTURES you can quote, not by how RIGHT you are, but by how much you LOVE them. You don’t JUDGE them. You don’t look DOWN because they don’t BELIEVE as you do. You just keep LOVING and being GOOD to them. They’re in your LIFE because God is counting on YOU to help them CHANGE.
John 13:35, NKJV
By this all will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.
