3/6/15 Do All Out Of Love For God

Jesus continues, “God does not want people to just follow a lot of religious rules.  He wants His children to show His love to the world, to be His hands and feet.  Show mercy, compassion, empathy to others, and the same will be shown to you.  Whenever you are in a position of authority over anyone, honor them.  Love them and treat them with respect.  Remember, the greatest commandment is to love the Lord your God with all your heart and soul and mind and strength.  If you do this, you put God first in your life, and your heart’s desire will be to do His will.  In this way, you will secure your place in His Kingdom – and be assured that you will see God face to face!  Whenever it is in your power to make peace with anyone, do so.  For most people, the instinct is to fight for your rights.  But you must remember that God is just, and He will fight your battles for you if you trust in Him. So instead of fighting, do everything you can to reconcile with someone who has wronged you, and in this way you show that you are a child of God, and that you trust Him to do what is right for you.”

Matthew 5:7-9
