Romans 12:9 “[Let your] love be sincere (a real thing); hate what is evil [loathe all ungodliness, turn in horror from wickedness], but hold fast to that which is good”
Love hates evil! Often we think of love as an gooey-gooey emotion that causes us to lose our sense of right and wrong, but far from it. Love is a decision. Make the right decision today, decide to love.
Romans 12:10 “Love one another with brotherly affection [as members of one family], giving precedence and showing honor to one another”
President Ronald Reagan had this saying on his desk in the Oval office: “There is no limit to how far you can go if you don’t care who gets the credit” Lets radiate an un-selfish life.

1 Corinthians 13:4(KJV) “Love endures long and is patient and kind; love never is envious nor boils over with jealousy, is not boastful or vainglorious, does not display itself haughtily” Romans 12:9 “Let love be without dissimulation. Abhor that which is evil; cleave to that which is good”
Let us love from the center of who we are and lets not fake love.
1 Corinthians 13:3 “And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing.”
This verse deals more with the heart than what the gift is. Size does not matter if the heart is not in it. Lets put our heart into action and love our neighbours as ourselves.
1 Corinthians 13:2 “Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal.”
Often when a gift is given, the smile on the giver is much bigger than on the one receiving the gift. Let my giving bring a smile and not just be an act of looking good.
1 Corinthians 13:1 “Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal.”
Lord today I do not want to speak in tongues that impressed all those around me, but I would like to speak Your language, the love language where You gave all because You so loved us. Let me love more and say less.
Hebrews 4:12 “For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.”
Words spoken by ourselves are weak, frail and mild in comparison to speaking the Words of God. Lets align our words to His Words and see them become quick, powerful and sharp.
Deuteronomy 28:14 “And thou shalt not go aside from any of the words which I command thee this day, to the right hand, or to the left, to go after other gods to serve them.”
Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within me, cast me not away from Thy presence and take not Thy Holy Spirit from me. I commit myself to your commandments.
Deuteronomy 28:13 “And the Lord shall make you the head, and not the tail; and you shall be above only, and you shall not be beneath, if you heed the commandments of the Lord your God which I command you this day and are watchful to do them”
We should not consult the negative map we so often form of ourselves, but rather consult the Word of God who called us to be the head and not the tail, above and not beneath. We are winners.
Deuteronomy 28:10 (KJV) "And all people of the earth shall see that thou art called by the name of the Lord; and they shall be afraid of thee"
Thank you Lord that You are in front of me, behind me, to my right and to my left, my help comes from You, the one who created the heaven and the earth.
