Thought for Today
“Love worketh no ill to his neighbour:
therefore love is the fulfilling of the law”
Consider love as the ruling agent to all of our interaction with others…
We do not steal because it is offensive to Christ (first and foremost), besides being injurious to others it also brings dishonour to that glorious Name to whom we owe our life!
They who love with His Love cannot but seek to keep the commandments for His Love inspires us to treat others with the same grace He has treated us. “Love thinks no evil.” If we are held in the power of His Love I am not able conjure up or hold evil thoughts of others. They who have tasted of His love and forgiveness cannot and dare not hold unforgiveness towards another.
Where Love reigns so will the righteousness of Christ shine forth.
The “end” or the fulfillment of all the commandments of God are to bring us to this ONE END… The Love of God flowing out of a pure heart, lives lived in a clear and clean conscience and a living faith which is genuine and authentic.
“Now the end of the commandment
is charity out of a pure heart,
and of a good conscience,
and of faith unfeigned”
1 Timothy 1:5
