Daily Digest #377

Be kindly affectionate to one another with brotherly love, in honor giving preference to one another. —Romans 12:10

I came across a beautiful poem earlier. Similarly, our love for God reflected in others does not wait. He urges us to exercise the fruits He has instilled in our hearts -- love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control -- so we may be a blessing to others. Anyway, here it is:

The Clock of Life

The clock of life is wound but once,
And no man has the power
To tell just when the hands will stop
At late or early hour.

To lose one's wealth is sad indeed,
To lose one's health is more,
To lose one's soul is such a loss
That no man can restore.

The present only is our own,
So Live, Love, toil with a will --
Place no faith in 'Tomorrow' --
For the clock may then be still.

For this, let us pray. Lord, teach us to love with all out hearts -- the kind that is unconditional and unselfish. May we learn to live for others. May we remember that we are here for your purpose. May Your will be done always. Amen.

Happy Tuesday! Pray always. God bless!
