Loving one another, can you succeed at this with everyone?
And most of all be warm in your love for one another; because in love there is forgiveness for sins without number: Keep open house for all with a glad heart; Making distribution among one another of whatever has been given to you, like true servants of the unmeasured grace of God; (1 Peter 4.8-10 Bible in Basic English (BBE))
What a beautiful thought, be warm in your love ... and that love will bring forgiveness of sins, no matter how many there have been. Consider this scripture if you felt there was no way to be forgiven for your past. The Apostle Peter tells us we can and should have hope if we love others. All it takes is faith and love. Can you take the leap of faith and continue showing your love to all people? Can you question yourself if you find yourself thinking in a non-loving way? Can you self-correct? You can if you have faith because you understand there is no choice.
Forgiving Father, I trust that you have forgiven me and will forgive me in the future. I want to love others more deeply. I want to eliminate my thoughts that are not loving when I greet someone or even if I am watching them on TV. I want my first thoughts to be of some kind nature about the person. Help me change my habit of judging. I realize it is a human frailty I will need to fight my whole life, but with you, I can overcome this. I trust you and love you. I also love others as much as I can, but mold me to be even more loving and caring with others. Help me see the results of loving one another, no matter what. Amen.
