Thought of the Day !!

Don't speak evil against each other, my dear brothers and sisters. If you criticize each other and condemn each other, then you are criticizing and condemning God's law.
                                   James 4:11 (NLT)  

God's ultimate law is the law of love.  He commands us to love Him and love each other.  There are no laws more important than these.  When we are hateful to others, whether they deserve it or not, we sin and break God's law.  For we are all deserving of worse than we receive from God.  But instead of the punishment we deserve, we received grace.

You will have many opportunities today to be hateful or negative or to say bad things about the people around you: the officer who gave you a ticket, the co-worker who laughed at your idea, the cashier who didn't treat you as you thought you deserved, the person who owes you money. Or you can choose to forgive and be kind, showing the love of Christ to all the people you meet, instead of just the ones who are nice to you.  

Which kind of person would Jesus want us to be?  Which will we be today?

In the love of Christ,
