Love does no wrong to a neighbor; therefore love is the fulfilling of the law. (Romans 13:10, ESV)
God’s law is intended to make us more like Christ. Think about how Christ demonstrated His love for people? He seemed to be harsh toward the religious leaders, but what was He really attempting to accomplish – hurt them or help them understand the truth? Real love sometimes means addressing the hard truths, but it should never purposely hurt an individual. Love your those around you have in ways that mirror Christ’s love.
Prayer: Lord, help me to speak truth but to do so with Your love, grace, and compassion.
