“…loving our neighbor can be a challenge. But when we do it to express our love to God, we unleash a powerful motivation that loves whether the person deserves it or not. And as we love God and our neighbor, everything else falls into place. If I love my neighbor, I won’t bear false witness against him, covet his wealth or his wife, or steal from him. Loving others for God’s sake even provides the grace and strength to forgive those who have heaped injustices upon us.”
-Our Daily Bread
This is really hard to do sometimes but it does say a lot in the well of patience that amazingly we can draw from. At times though, it comes easily if we focus on the good side of things, and more importantly in the overflowing richness of God’s goodness and provision.
