Daily Digest #339

Love is the fulfillment of the law. —Romans 13:10

While we're on the subject of loving rules, let me add some more to that :D I just got this in my email (thanks!), I hope we all get to apply them in our lives:

The "Be" Attitudes

Be understanding to your perceived enemies.

Be loyal to your friends.

Be strong enough to face the world each day.

Be weak enough to know you cannot do everything alone.

Be generous to those who need your help.

Be frugal with that you need yourself.

Be wise enough to know that you do not know everything.

Be foolish enough to believe in miracles.

Be willing to share your joys.

Be willing to share the sorrows of others.

Be a leader when you see a path others have missed.

Be a follower when you are shrouded by the mists of uncertainty.

Be first to congratulate an opponent who succeeds.

Be last to criticize a colleague who fails.

Be sure where your next step will fall, so that you will not tumble.

Be sure of your final destination, in case you are going the wrong way.

Be loving to those who love you..

Be loving to those who do not love you; they may change.

Above all, just be yourself.

Let us pray. Lord, thank You for the wisdom and guidance You give us through Your Words. Thank You for the many ways You draw us closer to You. Lord, we cannot measure the love You have for us. May we learn to love others as you have loved us -- pure and unconditional. Thank You for teaching us to forgive. Thank You for guiding our choices when we could have chosen the unpleasant. May we express our love for You today and every day. We ask these through Christ, our Lord. Amen.
