Directed By Love And Perseverance

And the Lord direct your hearts into the love of God, and into the patient waiting for Christ.  (2 Thessalonians 3:5) 

All that we do must be directed by love.  It matters not how much we give, how much we serve, how much we accomplish, if it is not directed by love, it is all for nothing.  What we do in our homes must be directed by love.  How we treat our spouses must be directed by love.  How we handle our children must be directed by love.  The way we are at work must be directed by love.  Our service in our Church must be directed by love.  Every decision we make must be directed by love.  This is a daily chore.  Each day and every day.  The race is not a sprint to see who can get there first.  It is a marathon to see who will last until the end.  The race is not against others.  It is a race against time.  The timing is a lifetime of service.  Those who hold out until the return of Christ will receive a just reward.  Keep your eyes on the prize as you patiently wait and patiently work until Christ’s return.
