Main theme of the day? Love.
Love is not just a word. It’s not something to be thrown around to make our hearts flutter. More so, it’s an attitude and an action. A loving person not only feels and exudes love, but also acts faithfully and works for the benefit of more than him or herself.
Many of us have been let down by empty words and repetitive thoughts revolving around love. Bottom-line: we have to be as intentional as possible with our words and thoughts because ultimately they lead to our actions and attitudes. We will fall short, but in placing our faith in the Lord and focusing on Him and His love for us, we craft Him into a vital part of our beings.
“Guard your heart above all else, for it is the source of life.” -Proverbs 4:23
We have the ability to tap into daily newness in our loving relationship with God… (Check out Proverbs 4:18!) Maybe you feel thrown away or that your loving qualities have been hindered and hidden away because of harsh circumstances. Be encouraged! There is freshness and immeasurable joy in the love of Christ and all pursuing this is a day-by-day choice and process.
Do your actions measure up to your attitudes when it comes to love?
How do you show others your love for them? How do you show them your love for Christ?
Set goals for today on how you can pursue a loving attitude towards others to exhibit the love God has shown you in your life.
