God's Word for Monday, 9/18/17

So this is my prayer: that your love will flourish and that you will not only love much but well. Learn to love appropriately. You need to use your head and test your feelings so that your love is sincere and intelligent, not sentimental gush. Live a lover’s life, circumspect and exemplary, a life Jesus will be proud of: bountiful in fruits from the soul, making Jesus Christ attractive to all, getting everyone involved in the glory and praise of God.

Philippians 1:9-11 MSG

Wonderful story, urging, reminder.

Thank you, Reverend.

Kind of interesting that we so seldom talk about loving "well", when everyone seems to want to talk about love.

Rev. Paul said...

You're welcome, Linda; I'm glad it spoke to you.

TB, that's a fact. Quality used to be important to folks. It's easy to say, "I love you with the love of Jesus," especially when you don't really know what that means. Loves isn't just an emotion ... it's something you do.

Amen! I love the writings of THAT Paul. You're great too, but..
