For the love of others…

Standard

Gift:  Knowledge – With the gift of knowledge, we understand the meaning of God’s Revelation, especially as expressed in the life and words of Jesus Christ. A person with knowledge is always learning more about the scriptures and Tradition.

Reading:  3 Beloved, let us love one another, because love is of God; everyone who loves is begotten by God and knows God.  (1 John 4:7)

Observation:  This morning, I am getting the feeling that I have focused too much lately on how my actions will affect others, I guess that is whyGod chose to focus my attention on this verse.  It is God’s will for me to love everyone, not to judge or wonder about the salvation of anyone.  As it says in the footnote for this verse, God loved us so much that he offered up his son to die for our sins, I guess I should see that he has our salvation handled and I just need to focus on loving more effectively.

Personification:  Love  It probably is not a surprise that I would choose to focus on the fruit of love today, but I hope that I can really display it today in a true sense to everyone that I come in contact with today.  Maybe, if I accomplish this, by the grace of God, I will begin to change into the person that God is willing me to be.

Prayer:  Lord, please allow me to see that it is your will for me to crave you alone and not allow anything to take my focus away from what you would expect me to be doing.  I ask this, as always, in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the holy Spirit.  Amen.
