Calvary's Love


If...

I am inconsiderate about the comfort of others,
or their feelings,
or even of their little weaknesses;
if I am careless about their little hurts and miss opportunities to smooth their way;
if I make the sweet running of household wheels more difficult to accomplish,

then I know nothing of Calvary's love.

Oh wow.
Amen and amen a thousand times over! I know I've read this before, but the reminder is so good and so powerful! Calvary's Love... the priceless gift that Christ makes us worthy of... it is wasted and misused when we do not reflect that love. When we care only for ourselves and forget Christ's selflessness.
Amen again, and thanks for sharing!

Bethany -
THANK YOU a thousand times! I needed to hear this and be reminded. Oh, how I want to display Calvary's love. Too many times I am selfish. May God bless you!!

Hey, thanks for visiting again. I'm eager to explore more of the content here once I've got DSL and don't end up spending half my time waiting for slooow dial-up. AAAAHHHH!! ;-) From the little I've seen already, I know I can thank you for creating a refreshing place to visit. I appreciate it.

btw, Bethany W., I wanted to tell you how excited I am for you that you are reading Mark Cahill's book! Wonderful and praise the Lord! :) What a powerful message he shares in that book... "One Heartbeat Away" is also just as powerful.
Don't you just so admire Mark's passion and zeal?!


God bless you as you seek Him! :)

Hey Bethany!

I know this has nothing to do with this post, but What kind of camera do you have? I know it's Nikon, but what kind of Nikon?

Thanks!

AJ

Bethany, I love that quote. That is so awesome. I think I'm going to print that out and put it on my wall. What an excellent thing to remember!
