Let’s Not Make a Deal
by Jimmy Pruitt
If our love for others is relative to the return then it’s not love, it’s a transaction. God never said, “Let’s make a deal.” He said, “Love one another.” Check your relationships today.
Are you disappointed when your gestures of kindness are not returned? Do you feel spurned or let down when you extend a helping hand and receive nothing back, not even a courteous, “Thank you?”
Check your heart. Check your motive. Love lavishly without condition or expectation.
God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in him. 1 John 4:16
