Let Love and Faithfulness Be Your Lifestyle
Love and faithfulness are qualities characteristic of one fully surrendered to live in Christ. Although our words are extremely important, actions and attitudes speak loudly too.
Let love and faithfulness never leave you, bind them around your neck, write them on the tablets of your heart.
Proverbs 3:3 NIV
A. W. Tozer said, “The things that are closest to our hearts are the things we talk about, and if God is close to your heart, you will talk about him.”
Let love and faithfulness motivate your life.
What comes out of your mouth reveals a picture of what your heart looks like. Words create thoughts, thoughts form attitudes and lead to actions. Our verse above encourages us to write love and faithfulness on our heart so that they affect everything we do and say.
It seems a little easier to love others during the Christmas season. Jesus, the reason we celebrate this time of year, desires for you to make love and faithfulness a lifestyle that people can see in all you think, do and say every single day of the year.
