Keeping With Love And Consideration


"And the second is like it: Love you neighbor as yourself. All the Law and the prophets hang on these two commandments" (Matt.22:39-40).

There have been too many books written to cite, and seminars and workshops offered, to help folks get out of debt. Debts will come and go and ought to be paid, but the obligation to love our brother is a perpetual one... Today's verses say that love ensures that we will fulfill God's will towards one another. Love fills our hearts, minds, and lives with the right characteristics, motives and actions... (1 Cor.13:4-7) We should never act as if we have loved our brother enough, and as a matter of fact, everything we owe our brother can be summed up in the word "LOVE..." Lets make sure as we make our way this week through these lessons about being our brother's keeper, that we see how love is intertwined with all the other points... "Let us consider how to stimulate one another to love and good deeds..." (Heb.10:24). The Greek word that is translated "consider" actually means to observe fully and to fix one's mind upon. There are times that we become so focused on ourselves, that we lose sight of the needs of others. Most of us probably live busy lives, with responsibilities towards our jobs and families. The Bible reminds us often, however, that we are to observe our brethren and take notice of the things they are going through..."Do not merely look out for your own personal interests, but for the interests of others" (Phil.2:4). Because we love, we need to be mindful of those who are sick or shut-in... We must show genuine concern for those who are facing challenges in their lives. One of the most basic ways that I am my brother's keeper is wrapped up in the consideration I have and show for him...

Have a great day... Do good and give God the credit... Love mark Phil.4:11
