Walk in love. Ephesians 5:2
Family is important to God, therefore to Jesus and therefore, it should be important to us. Walking in love can be the biggest obstacles with family members. But, does it have to? Think about it, if we made a conscious effort to walk in love, there would be less argument, selfishness, and to sum it all up, works of the flesh. Sometimes, working with people can be a task but God commands us to WALK IN LOVE...
Walking in love requires discipline with only God can provide. Be kind to one another. Forgive others. Are you waiting on an apology from someone you feel you deserve. Don't let their lack of maturity stump your growth.
Jesus walked in love daily. He walked in love when they arrested him in the garden. He walked in love when they pulled out his hair. When they spit in his face, he walked in love. People mocked him, called him names, laughed at him; yet, he walked in love.
Judas, one of twelve chosen by Jesus, betrayed him with a kiss. That didn't stop Jesus from walking in love. Walk in love with the family members that rub you the wrong way. Be kind to the people that talk about you. The ones that betray, love them. Do something nice for them. In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head, and the LORD will reward you. Proverbs 25:22
