Thought for Today
Monday, October 27, 2014
Choose love. People will sometimes hurt and disappointment you, but choose to love them anyway. There will be times when making the decision to love comes easy, and there will be times when you might have to wrestle with your flesh to choose the response you know is best. In these times trust that the power of God living in you is far greater than your will to hold on to what has offended you.
Today as you experience this day may you be inspired to choose the path of love as you interact with the various individuals who may cross your path today, and when the decision to love becomes tough, may God’s Holy Spirit give you that extra strength you need to choose your response wisely.
“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
8 Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away.” (1 Corinthians 13: 4-8)
