I pray that the Lord will guide you to be as loving as God and as patient as Christ.
2 Thessalonians 3:5
Adam and Eve were deceived. They wanted to be wise like God and so they sinned. How foolish was that? Sinning does not make you like God at all. It is just the opposite. If you want to be like God, your life will be defined by love. You will love those who love you and you will love those who hate you. Love will be your purpose for living and the focus of every thought and action. You will love God even though you have not seen Him, and you will love the world like God did and gave His Son to redeem the world from the grasp of Satan.
Can you recall the voice of a little child who says with all sincerity "I love everybody?"
Loving like God is amazing, but so is being as patient as Christ. Every day of your life Jesus has been waiting patiently for that moment when you will turn your heart to Him. He longs for that day. He gave everything for you and now waits patiently for you to give everything to Him! He calls you "Softly and Tenderly" like the old hymn says, to have Him the closest one to your heart. He looks down the road like the father of the prodigal son hoping to catch a glimpse of your return.
As you walk through this day make your goal to be as loving as God and as patient as Christ!
