Is Our Love Sincere? — 10 Comments

  1. I’ve prayed this several times in my life , probably should pray this every day. Thank you for the reminder, busyness seems to slowly overtake my actions before i even realize it and have gone back to my old ways. Thank you for posting this today

    • I love you, Teresa. You are one of the people I referred to in my devotion. You serve with a genuineness I envy. You are beautiful – inside and out, my friend.

  2. Sheryl thank you for this article. I have been led to read my Bible through.I am asking God to help me to comprehend whatI read.That I may see others through his eyes. Not always easy but,Thankful God is still working on me.

    • God is STILL working on me too, Susan!
      I’m so proud of you for persevering in reading through the Bible and praying to comprehend what you’re reading! Don’t give up, dear friend.
      AND thank you so much for stopping by Today Can Be Different again.

  3. Yes, it extends to churches which, of course, are made of its members. Chapters 2 and 3 of Revelation give examples of works of churches – some were favorable to God and others were not. Depended if they were conducted in sincere love or if they were for appearances or going through the motions.

    • Hello, Jamez. Exactly. Our motives behind our actions are very important. We would be wise to allow the Holy Spirit to examine our motives!
      Thank you for stopping by Today Can Be Different, Jemez. I hope you visit again!

  4. God knows the intentions of our heart towards Him and others we serve. Are we relying on His authentic and genuine love in caring for others, or are we more concerned with what others think and see? We are to please God, not man. Without depending on God in this, we are nothing. This is a humbling thought for sure. Thanks Sheryl!️✝️

    • Indeed! Indeed!! As I mentioned to Jamez (above your comment), we would be wise to allow God’s Holy Spirit to examine our motives. I, for one, can sometimes fool myself. 🙁
      Thank you for another great comment, Kim.

  5. This reminds me of people who are willing to help, but only if it’s under their conditions or control. I am hopeful I do not have a log in my eye and that I will serve as needed and not turn it into a personal power grab to do something other than what was requested. Help and service should be given as an act of being the hands, feet and heart of Jesus.

    • So true, Janice. It is so easy for us to get our motives wrong. I know I do this a lot. I pray (as you mentioned) to be the hands, feet and heart (love the way you said this, Janice) of Jesus!
