“But not during the festival,” they said, “or the people may riot.” (Mark 14v2 NIV)
Do not make a pretence of love.
Be patient and forgive, not just with words but from the heart.
You may say all the right words but still not really mean them.
You may fool everyone else, but there are at least two people who know the truth and one of them is going to have a chat with you about it one day.
Are you critical of people?
If you are, stop it!
Pray for His blessing on them.
Pray for any need of theirs you are aware of.
Take time and effort to get to know them.
Only speak well of them.
Speak kind and good words about them.
Then you will release blessings over them and in return you will be extremely blessed.
You have the capacity to love everyone.
(From ‘Wipe His Feet with Your Tears by Warren George)
