Love Looks Like

The “fruit of the Spirit” are the attributes of God. God is love. So God and love are the same. They are loving, joyful, peaceful, patient, kind, good, faithful, gentle and self-controlled. God is these things. Love is these things. If something claims to be love or God and is not these things, it is trying to deceive you. This is how the truth sets us free. If someone can’t wait for you, they do not truly love you, they may love what you can give them. If someone is not kind and gentle you, they do not truly love you. Act accordingly. Do not move away from God and these things for anyone, do not “throw your pearls before swine”, as it says in Proverbs, meaning give away tour treasures to those who do not deserve them. Be aware. And when you set out to love people, love them truly. Do your best to love and live this way: loving, joyful, peaceful, patient, kind, good, faithful, gentle and self-controlled. Imagine how it would be if everyone did this. Imagine how much better if just you did…
