Love is the first Fruit of the Spirit found in Galatians 5:22-23.
How do you measure up? Christians are called to be role models to our society. How well do you love your spouse, your children (or parents), or complete strangers?
The Bible doesn’t say “Love those who love you” or “Love just those who deserve to be loved”. On the contrary, LOVE must begin and end with you. Let YOUR love be the spark that encourages others to do the same.
In the coming week, just pause now and then and contemplate…”in that conversation or in that action, how well did I show love?” Only by focusing on this Fruit can you hope to Love others as God calls us to.
