Need a little love in your heart?
I once heard a brother in church say, “Where there are relationships, there are conflicts.” And if you’re not a Christian, or if you’re a new Christian, a part-time Christian, a Christian returning to faith, or a mature Christian, conflicts are inevitable. We all have relationships to maintain.
The great thing about conflict is the need for love. And where there is a need for love, there is room for growth. No matter where you are in your spiritual walk, you need to love, love, love!
I came up with these questions you can ask yourself to help you find balance in all your relationships, to help you make reflections, and make sense of where you’re at in your spiritual journey.
I admit I don’t always reply or react the way a proper Christian should, but the desire to be more loving never ceases in my heart. If you’re in the same boat, press that print button and give this activity a shot.
Colossians 3:12-14 You are the people of God; he loved you and chose you for his own. So then, you must clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience. Be tolerant with one another and forgive one another whenever any of you has a complaint against someone else. You must forgive one another just as the Lord has forgiven you. And to all these qualities add love, which binds all things together in perfect unity.
Colossians 3:34 And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity.
John 15:12-13 “My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.”
1 Corinthians 13:4-8 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
