No one had to teach me to be jealous. It came as naturally as breathing. I wanted her boyfriend, his popularity, someone else’s money or admiration or dress size.

I know for sure that Jesus is into total heart-revolution because when he became my King I no longer had to say ‘Yes sir’ to sin. His love in me took away the sting of envy and taught me to trust him for all I need and celebrate what he does for others.

It’s still tough some days, but it helps to remember that God is in me and God is love …

…and love does not envy

1 Corinthians 13v4 (http://bit.ly/1aOyzRs)

Right now you can probably think of someone who is almost always kind to you. And someone else who is almost always NOT. Even the most hard-core among us are in touch enough with our emotions to know how it feels when someone is kind, and when they’re not.

Kindness is powerful because it comes straight from the heart of God. It’s a Jesus-magnet that few people can run from. Today, check your words, your tone, your body language, your facial expressions. Do they mirror the kindness of Christ?

Ask God to make you a safe place for others.

‘Love is… kind.’ (1 Corinthians 13v4 http://bit.ly/1aOyzRs )

Wondered why more people don’t follow Jesus? Feel like Christians are targets? An atheist said this on Friday: ‘You see, Christians, people don’t object to what you believe in. They object to your behaviour… There’s a big difference between objecting to a belief, and objecting to having that belief forced on everyone.'(Full article here: http://bit.ly/HU0Md8)

It’s important to have good reasons for our faith, but arguments don’t always change people. Jesus said: ‘This is how everyone will recognize that you are my discipleswhen they see the love you have for each other.’ http://bit.ly/19pew5E

Check out Ephesians 6v12 (http://bit.ly/1eTiFXy). How can you upgrade your ‘love-one-another?’

As I pray today with my hands together, I look at my ring finger. Those in love place engagement and wedding rings on these fingers. So I think about love. I am encouraged by this truth about your love:

‘I have loved you with an everlasting love; I have drawn you with loving kindness.’ (Jeremiah 31v3)

Thank you that your love never fails. I pray for those in my family and among my friends and even my enemies. I pray that your love becomes REAL to them. God, how can I show that love? Will you teach me? Let me live with actions of love. Amen
