The Evolution of Love

Romans 12:9-16 (MSG) Love from the center of who you are; don't fake it. Run for dear life from evil; hold on for dear life to good. Be good friends who love deeply; practice playing second fiddle. Don't burn out; keep yourselves fueled and aflame. Be alert servants of the Master, cheerfully expectant. Don't quit in hard times; pray all the harder. Help needy Christians; be inventive in hospitality. Bless your enemies; no cursing under your breath. Laugh with your happy friends when they're happy; share tears when they're down. Get along with each other; don't be stuck-up. Make friends with nobodies; don't be the great somebody.

*Today, God laid the lesson of love on my heart. Many of us say we love God, but are constantly being rude or looking down on each other. Even saying you are going to do something for or with someone with no intention of ever accomplishing that task shows lack of love....To say one thing to a person, but treat them with the opposite behavior is not love, and to manipulate a situation or act in selfishness is a falsified love as well. Today, let's truly think on how we love and treat others, and ask yourself are you really loving the way God tells us to do so?...OR, have you modified the meaning of the word for your own selfishness? The meaning of love never changes, but the actions behind it should always be evolving. How is your love walk going?
