“Do not seek revenge or bear a grudge against one of your people, but love your neighbor as yourself. I am the Lord” (Leviticus 19:18).

Read the Bible in 90 Days with Dana Pittman

 

Love others as you love yourself.

I have always loved this verse. As I approach my anniversary I am embracing a new understanding. I’ve thought of the verse, almost exclusively, as a reminder to love others, but what about when I’ve unlovable?I know, kind of hard to consider…yeah rightMy husband and I will celebrate our 12th anniversary. We have experienced our entire adult lives together. We have seen the good, bad, ugly, and uglier.

As I consider the greatest love, God’s love for us, I think about the love shown to me, by my husband, when I could be a little nicer. When I could give a little less attitude. When I could be much more like Christ.

I’m thankful that he loves me as Christ loves His bride.

Prayer

Heavenly Father,

Thank you for Jesus. Thank you for loving us enough to send your son.Thank you for blessing me with a loving husband.

I pray that you will keep our hearts and minds focused on you and the work you’ve called us to do. I pray that you will strengthen our union and teach us how to love each other just as you have loved us.

In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.

 

Question: Am I the only one with unloveable days?
