Proverbs 3:5&6, Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your path straight.
Matthew 6:25, “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes?”
John 15:17, “This is my command: Love each other.”
This morning, as I lay in my bed pondering my relationship with the Lord, it occurred to me that my ability to love others is wholly depended on my ability to trust the Lord. When I leave my needs and wants in his hands, I am freed from looking for those things in others.
My conclusion is: the more I trust in the Lord; the more my motivations are purely rooted in love; and the more I can fulfill Jesus’ command to love others.
