THEME: Love Is the Higher Law
SCRIPTURE: — Romans 13:10 (AMPC) “Love does no wrong to one’s neighbor [it never hurts anybody]. Therefore love meets all the requirements and is the fulfilling of the Law.
Did you know that walking in love can mean simply doing what is right?
There are things that we shouldn’t do, simply because we love God, and because we don’t want to hurt somebody else’s conscience. We may have the freedom to do these things, but our freedom could offend others, or cause them to do something against their conscience, and thus sin against God.
If you walk in love today, there may be things that you have the right to do, but the Holy Spirit will prompt you not to exercise your right out of love for someone who is watching you. Love never demands its own way (see 1 Corinthians 13:5). Love is always the higher law.
Prayer of the Day: Lord Jesus, thank You for living in me. Help me grow in You and walk in Your divine guidance, amen.
