The Attitude of Love

“If only we could live the words that we sing.” This sentiment might have been on the Apostle’s heart as he penned the words to a familiar hymn in Philippians 2:6ff. This afternoon as I reflect on the morning sermon I am thinking of a different sentiment, “It’s easier to preach on Sunday than it is to live what I preach on Monday.”

How do I live my life so that I Act in love rather than React in fear? Who are the people and what are the situations in my life that need a healthy dose of “love in action” rather than my animal instincts of “fight or flight”? As God reveals these things to me I pray that he will do so for you so that we may all “shine like stars in the sky.”

By the way, isn’t Bear a handsome dog? If you come to my house I’ll show you how he can hold a treat on his paw until I tell him to eat it. Good boy! . .
