THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:
YOU CAN CHOOSE TO WALK IN LOVE EVEN WHEN YOU DON’T FEEL LIKE IT
Spiritual maturity isn’t measured by how LONG you’ve been a Christian, how much you KNOW, or how often you go to CHURCH. Spiritual maturity is measured by the way you TREAT other PEOPLE. Are you KIND to the person working the checkout counter when the line is moving too slowly for you? Are you COURTEOUS when someone cuts you off in traffic? Are you PATIENT with your family and coworkers? The Bible tells us that love is PATIENT; it is KIND. It does NOT envy; it is not proud; it is not rude. Love is not easily angered, and it keeps NO record of wrong. Love NEVER fails. Notice that these characteristics don’t have ANYTHING to do with feelings. You can CHOOSE to walk in LOVE even when you don’t FEEL like it! Show KINDNESS and COURTESY to others. LOOK for ways to develop the GREATEST thing in your life—LOVE!
And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.
