Prayer Corner

This week meditate on  . . . Galatians 5:14-15

For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command:  “Love your neighbor as yourself.”  If you bite and devour each other, watch out or you will be destroyed by each other.”   (NIV)

When we are not motivated by love, we become critical of others.  We stop looking for good in them and see only their faults.  Soon the unity of believers is broken.  Jesus’ command to love others as you love yourself (Matthew 22:39) needs to be always in the front of our minds.  When you begin to feel critical of someone, make a list of that person’s positive qualities.  If there are problems that need to be addressed, it is better to confront in love than to gossip.
