Daily Scripture and Thoughts

If anyone says, “I love God,” and hates his brother, he is a liar; for he who does not love his brother whom he has seen cannot love God whom he has not seen. (1 John 4:20 ESV)

Dear Ones-
This truth is one we do not pay much attention too. We focus so much on things that do not matter and never take the time to check our hearts on the deep things that do matter.

Do you hold resentment or bitterness toward a brother or sister?

Each one of us are created differently, we act, talk and do things different. Different is NOT bad. It is a blessing, different brings challenges and balance to our hearts.

My Sister-
is so different than I am. She has to stay crazy busy. She is so crafty that it oozes from her pores. Her creativity has been such a blessing in my life. I love how different we are and I cherish her because of her differences. Is that how you feel about your brother or sister? Though I do not understand her differences  I made a choice to embrace her differences because honestly I have no desire for her to be like me.

Is that how you feel about your sibling? Do you  prefer one over the other? Ask yourself why? What is it that keeps you from connecting, loving and embracing that sibling? Does that sibling challenge you? Why not embrace those challenges and love like you have never loved before? Focus on the good and not on the bad.

We are command to love and if we have difficulty loving those who are right in front of us, then how can we love the Lord whom we can not see?

Be challenged dear ones- and examine yourself and rectify yourself before the Lord and your sibling if needed.

Lord- thank you for the reminder of how we are to love. How we are to love each other, our families, our brothers and sisters. Some are easier to love, but Lord help us to love the ones that arent easy to love. Help to love as you love us, because we know we are not easy to love at times either. Thank you for a new day and a new chance.

In Jesus Name
