Loving one another doesn’t come in pat answers and cookie-cutter moments. To be honest, I’ve got a stubborn streak of all-about-me-DNA that breaks loose every now and then. When our focus is on ourselves, we’re all about getting our need for love met in just the way we like it. It is the love of Christ that frees us from the “what’s-in-it-for-me” mindset in our relationships. Fresh faith brings the power to love others God’s way.
Okay, let’s be honest here. Some things just don’t go down easy. Sure, it’s easy to get all holy-ed up, kind of like getting gussied up for a ball. Dressed in glitter and satin, it’s easy to feel great about singing with the angels–but loving others can be a real challenge.
