Romans 12:9 (ESV) – Let love be genuine. Abhor what is evil; hold fast to what is good.
As disciples, We must practice sincerity. we cannot proclaim a desire to have perfect love yet attempt to manipulate our way to it. Love that involves deceitfulness is not love at all. Discipleship is about showing love at all times; not simply in situations where we deem the likelihood of profiting from it to be high. We must always Remember, the way we do anything is the way we do everything; no exceptions. We must learn to love with the right intentions. We simply do not know how the Lord is using these situations to mold and prepare us for something greater. The humility and care we show goes a long way in proving to the Lord that we indeed are ready to receive more. Love all, always.
