13Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be men of courage; be strong. 14Do everything in love. (1Cor16)
Despite everything that happens and despite anything that we feel, we should NEVER make an excuse for being cranky, irritable, or just plain mean. Even in those petty moments of selfishness or times of unfairness, we must look at the situation with boldness and courage. Can we stand against the foe, even if it happens to be something as trivial as someone cutting us off on the freeway? Can we react with love, even if it means humbling ourselves when someone treats us rudely?
In the small and big things in life, we must remain firm in the faith and respond with nothing but LOVE!
