A Necessary Progression – Closing Thoughts
Greetings Dear Reader,
As I said this is a short simple progression. The path to loving others is always going to take time to learn. It is always going to necessitate that we take steps to get to the habit of loving others.
If we practice kindness and being tender hearted, we learn to love. Intentionally doing things to be kind builds our understanding for the need of it. It shows us that compassion is the path to take to do well. Having compassion heightens our sense of what others need. It moves us to act in ways that are selfless and serve others.
If we forgive we have room for love. If we forgive it is much easier to be kind and compassionate. If we do not forgive we give a foothold to bitterness and evil. Love for others does not come from just willing it. We need to love in order for others to see the path to Christ.
This necessary progression allows me to follow Christ daily. It lights the journey and lightens the burden. It is in following this path that I will find my way home. It is not always easy but always worth the effort.
Be kind to one another, tender-hearted, forgiving each other, just as God in Christ also has forgiven you.
Wishing you joy in the journey,
Mat 13:52 So Jesus said to them, "That is why every writer who has become a disciple of Christ’s rule of the universe is like a home owner. He liberally hands out new and old things from his great treasure store.”
