If you are trying to walk in love but it’s not working, maybe you aren’t trying hard enough?
According to Yoda, “Do. Or do not. There is no try.”
Yoda was an amazing Jedi Master; however he wasn’t as big a fan of GRACE as I am.
Let’s see what God has to say…
34 “Let me give you a new command: Love one another. In the same way I loved you, you love one another.” John 13:34 (MSG)
31 The second most important commandment is this: ‘Love your neighbor as you love yourself.’ No other commandment is greater than these.” Mark 12:31 (GW)
God is Love. God is also Grace and Mercy.
God is second and third and seventy-seventh chances.
It’s the who that gives us trouble. The who, as in who? is your neighbor.
We are to love our neighbor – PERIOD.
Even the idiot driver who cuts me off, who doesn’t let me in, who? YES.
Even the rude customer who? YES.
Even the actual neighbor who lets his dog poop in my yard? YES.
But surely NOT the parent of the child who? YES and YES.
Sounds like we need to walk in LOVE even when the other person isn’t. YES.
It is our responsibility. We are accountable for our choices.
When we said YES to God and a faith-filled life, we said yes to walking in love. We said yes to giving it our very best effort.
8 He has showed you, O man, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you but to do justly, and to love kindness andmercy, and to humble yourself andwalk humbly with your God? Micah 6:8 (AMP)
We also said yes to getting second and third and even more chances to get it right, you know – Grace. We said yes to Grace.
Faith ain’t Easy – Living a life of Worship ain’t easy, BUT the rewards are out of this world♥
Remember if you fall off the love wagon just get back on – It’s all good because God is Love.
What’s your Tuesday1,2,3?
And for good measure – Go.Be.Love.
Peace out – Mindi
