To love others as we would ourselves is something Tod has asked us to do. It is something we should daily strive for. Not only will others benefit, but we will also benefit from the love we show.
1 Every Thursday I would give you a word from the Bible. You find a scripture to go with the word. If you want you can write a little bit on what the scripture means to you. Don’t forget to follow mycreatorscreation so you won’t miss out on this challenge.http://challenge-triumphant-thursday/
Today’s Word: Love
Jesus said to him, “‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ Matthew 22:37-39 NKJ
“Whoever does not love does not know God, for God is love.” 1 John 4:8
Entering into God’s realm of mercy and love . . . I can’t think of many places better.
“Good friend, don’t forget all I’ve taught you; take to heart my commands. They’ll help you live a long, long time, a long life lived full and well. Don’t lose your grip on Love, and Loyalty. Tie them around your neck; carve their initials on your heart. Earn a reputation for living well in God’s eyes and the eyes of the people. Trust GOD from the bottom of your heart; don’t try to figure out everything on your own. Listen for GOD ’s voice in everything you do, everywhere you go; he’s the one who will keep you on track. Don’t assume that you know it all. Run to GOD! Run from evil! Your body will glow with health, your very bones will vibrate with life! Honor GOD with everything you own; give him the first and the best. Your barns will burst, your wine vats will brim over. But don’t, dear friend, resent GOD ’s discipline; don’t sulk under his loving correction. It’s the child he loves that GOD corrects; a father’s delight is behind all this.” Proverbs 3:1-12 MSGhttps://www.redbubble.com/i/framed-print/Tranquil-Garden-by-lrant999/71776208.AJ1A3?asc=u https://www.shutterstock.com/g/Elle777?rid=223006761 https://www.dreamstime.com/#res25901698
