Word of the Day:What is love?
What is love? Someone wise said that love is giving for the world’s needs, sharing as the Spirit leads, caring when the world cries and compassion with Christ like eyes. How true! As believers we are to show love to all with the care and compassion that Christ showed us. In fact it was because of His love for us, He died for our sins.
In 1st Samuel 24, Saul had been seeking for David’s life for some time. Saul was found in a defenseless situation when David and his armed men found him in a cave. David had good reason to kill Saul yet he showed him mercy by sparing his life even though the opportunity for David to slay Saul was ripe.
Suppose someone who has hurt you greatly in the past was in a vulnerable situation, what would your reaction be? Would it be to hurt them or show compassion to them? Let’s remember that love always seeks to help never to hurt. Therefore, let’s look at others through the eyes of mercy.
“He has showed you, O man, what is good. And what does the LORD require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.”
