It all comes down to love. If we do ALL things in Love (as Christ would), you can be assured that you will not do wrong.
And live a life of love, just as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God. Ephesians 5:2 (NIV)
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness & self-control. Galatians 5:22 (NIV)
The fruits of the Spirit is something I want to spend time focusing on with my boys when they are old enough. These are the qualities I want my boys to have for themselves, for their future wives, for their children. It's so cool to me that the very first is love :)
Our prayer for today:
Lord, I pray that my children may learn to live a life of love. Allow YOUR love to penetrate their hearts & show through all they do. I pray that they will love those who don't even return it. Fill them up Lord, and, let it spill over!!
