A Word to Start Our Week : Love
The fruit of the spirit is… LOVE. Galatians 5:22
In this season, this crazy politically-charged environment we find ourselves in, we often forget about the very basics, especially the act of loving one another.
Jesus, as we work and live, we want to reflect your love. It’s just that sometimes, when all the words start flying and the dust is settling, we find that we have been less than the hands and feet and arms of Jesus to a world that is angry, confused and hurting.
Help us to love the way you would love.
Help us to embrace those different from us the way you would.
Teach us to see the person behind the words and actions.
May we never forget they are humans too and you created them just the same as you created us.
As we press in to a new week, may we remember that those around us will only know you if they see the fruit of your love at work in us.
The fruit of the spirit is love.
