Your love must be real. Hate what is evil. Do only what is good. Love each other in a way that makes you feel close like brothers and sisters. And give each other more honor than you give yourself. Romans 12:9-10 ERV
Real love comes out of my heart - can't be faked or put on! My heart is Your territory! We meet there! When U have my heart . . . love flows out of it! And doing what's good flows out of ít too!
And “Love each other in a way that makes you feel close like brothers and sisters.” is so good! Healthy families stay together & work things out so they can continue to be family! U called us the family of God! I love the sounds & feel of that!
The Message shrinks the last sentence to, “practice playing second fiddle”! I think that is the message Americans need today - we have a lot of trouble with being too self-serving & self-centered! Lord, help me see the ways I'm doing this!
