40 Days of Reflection Day 5:February 23rd

Day 5

Be devoted to one another in brotherly love (Romans 12:10)

Many people make the mistake of thinking that love is primarily a feeling. But feelings come and feelings go, and love based on feelings will not last. The love Paul talks about here is the long-term commitment to seek the good of other people, sometimes even in spite of how we ourselves feel. Simply put, it is a decision to persevere in love, no matter the cost.

Today thank someone who has shown you love over a long period of time.

If you want to read further, reflect on the commitment Ruth makes in Ruth 1:15-18.
