How to Love at All Times
God instructs us to love at all times. On the surface, this sounds easy. It’s easy to love someone when they’re being nice. It’s easy to love a friend who hasn’t betrayed you. What happens when someone treats you wrong though? Do you act on revenge and treat them the same way? It’s important to realize that loving someone doesn’t excuse the offense. Loving someone doesn’t mean acting as though it never happened in the first place. Loving someone means that you are not going out of your way to harm them. Loving someone means not jumping in the conversation when you hear gossip about them. Loving someone means helping them if you’re able to. When you love people, it takes you higher and allows you to grow. Loving someone after an offense isn’t for their benefit, it’s for yours. God calls you to live a higher life because He wants to see you go higher in life. So the next time you have the chance to act on revenge, think about it and see how you can show them love instead. Pray about it and God will give you the grace you need to be the bigger person.
