Exercising Your Love Muscles

Wisdom From the World

“Love is not something people feel, but something people try to express no matter how they feel.” – Frank Pittman

“One does not fall in love, one grows in love and love grows in him.” – Karl A. Menninger

“Blessed is the influence of one true, loving human soul on another.” – George Eliot

Wisdom From the Word

“Work from the heart for your real master, for God, confident that you’ll get paid in full when you come into your inheritance. Keep in mind always that the ultimate Master you’re serving is Christ.” – Colossians 3:23,24 (The Message)

“Do you want to be counted wise, to build a reputation for wisdom? Here’s what you do: Live well, live wisely, live humbly. It’s the way you live not the way you talk, that counts…Real wisdom, God’s wisdom, begins with a holy life and is characterized by getting along with others. It is gentle and reasonable, overflowing with mercy and blessings, not hot one day and cold the next, not two-faced.” – James 3:13,17 (The Message)

“If you enter your place of worship and are about to make an offering, you suddenly remember a grudge a friend has against you, abandon your offering, leave immediately, go to this friend and then and only then, come back and work things out with God.” – Matthew 5:23,24 (The Message)

Keep MeReal, Lord!

“Lord you are the ultimate initiator of love. You left the comfort zone of heaven to teach each of us what love looks like. You taught us that love initiates regardless of the reaction it receives and regardless of how the one initiating feels. Help me to live as an initiator of loving words and actions in my marriage. I choose to love as you loved regardless of whether my spouse deserves it or regardless of how I feel.”
