Devotion of the Week – Show Someone you love them

“Do to others as you would have them do to you.” Luke 6:31

This week is all about showing our love for our fellow brothers and sisters. As the bible says, we should treat others as we want to be treated. If you are constantly treating people the way they treat you, how can you expect to get anywhere in a bad relationship. Now, all is fine in a good relationship, but on an unsteady ground, it is time for a change.

The Bible says:

“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”
Corinthians 13:4-8

As you can see, the Bible clearly states love does not dishonor others. So your challenge this week is as follows: Do a good deed to someone who you are on bad terms with.

If you can’t think of anyone, then congratulations, this challenge is not for you. but I am sure most of us can think of at least one person. If you want a relationship to evolve past hate, someone must make the first steps toward peace. “(Love)… always protects, always trusts” Trust that your relationship with this person can evolve.

“And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.”

When all passes away, and your body is nothing but dust, all that will remain of you in this world is the knowledge of others, and memories of your friends and enemies. The Bible states to do good to our enemies, because doing good is of Christ.

So do good, be good, and embrace love. With peace from me, Stephen.
