TOPIC: Anger vs. Love
Scripture: Beloved, let us love one another, for love is (springs) from God; and he who loves [his fellowmen] is begotten (born) of God and is coming [progressively] to know and understand God [to perceive and recognize and get a better and clearer knowledge of Him]. –1 John 4:7 (AMPC)
Anger is a powerful emotion, but love is much stronger. And love is the model God has displayed for each of us.
In ager we might criticize, but in love, we encourage.
In anger we might turn away, but in love, we reach out.
In anger we might withhold, but in love, we are generous.
In anger we might glare, but in love, we smile.
In anger we might blame, but in love, we forgive.
One of the best ways to show your gratitude for God’s love is to share that love with others. Don’t just be a recipient of God’s love; be a dispenser of that love to all those you come in contact with.
Prayer Starter: Thank You, Father, for the display of love You have demonstrated for me to follow. I am grateful that You love me, and with Your help I am going to demonstrate that same love to others. In Jesus’ name, amen.
