Living at peace with one another requires the hard work of letting go of our own agenda, trusting God with our lives, and loving the other as Christ loved us. Let’s work toward this today.

We’re to “suffer” one another in love, to will their best, to love them with agape; even the ones who bug us; even the ones we don’t even like. That’s a tall order, but God’s agape toward us make it possible. Amen.

Paul calls to patience, the spirit of one who has the power to retaliate, but doesn’t. Live toward others as God does toward you today. Amen.

Well, as has been said, “do as I say, not as I do.” Yesterday, I spoke of remaining faithful and patient in the face of temptation and I did not. Thank goodness God’s mercies are new every morning. Amen. Let’s trust God today for the battle, and remember the war’s been won.

Life sometimes feels weary and we may cry, “how long, oh Lord?” But Paul reminds us that the war is won, all we need do is remain faithful to our duty. Paul calls this patience. Hang in there, my friend.

Good morning, Treat others with gentle hands today, just you would want to be treated. Honor their glory and carry their pain. Amen.

Humility grows when all you are and all you have is knowingly received from God and gladly returned to God. Right now, give yourself back to God to be used as God wills. You’ll find joy in the exchange. Amen.
