Read these verses and simply pause. Pause. Pause.
Oh- to have this on the forefront of my heart at all times. Can you imagine life? Can you imagine the beauty? Can you imagine the love that would pour forth from each day if these verses were put on as you put on your clothes in the morning?
Shoes-check. meekness-check. forgiveness, and over all of it pull it all together with love.
We have been wrestling a rough stomach bug in our house, and I’m not sure we have had all these thoughts at the forefront of our thinking, but we have been working to love one another well. I read these verses in my illness and I’m undone. I want this to mark how I live, even when I’m feeling poorly.
How can you put on this kind of love today? Where are you struggling: kindness, humility, patience? How can you press into Jesus and ask him to help you grow deeper in an area you are struggling? Jesus, would you grow my heart in every direction that is bound together in love.
