The Fruit of Truth - Love
The cornerstone of being a child of God is Love. As our fruit defines us, love is one of the core attributes which mark the children of God. While the world also loves, what sets us apart is agape love. The love that we are called to goes far beyond the love of the world; as we are commanded to act on that love. Ours is a demonstrative love. An active love. A longsuffering love. A go beyond love. An unselfish love. A love that does not keep record of wrongs. An unusual love, when exposed to the world. A love that is hard for the world to understand. A love that is from God. That is what makes this love challenging at times. This love naturally opposes our human nature, as the world sees it. The love of the world, is a love that loves because of, and carries stipulations and conditions. We find our strength to execute the love of God in the face of resistance, because we realize the great love that has been granted to us, by God. The love God calls us to, is a love that reflects the perfect love of God- not ourselves. So, when you struggle to love someone who is deemed unlovable, do so in reflection of the love that has been given to you. We must fight the temptation to look inward and evaluate how we feel in those moments, instead we must focus on how it glorifies God. It is then that our fruit begins to define us. Blessings.
