Scripture: Micah 1-4, Hebrews 6
Hebrews 6:10 For God is not unjust. He will not forget how hard you have worked for him and how you have shown your love to him by caring for other believers, as you still do.
The author of Hebrews warns his readers against spiritual drifting and apostasy. In the middle of the warning, he encourages them (v. 9-10), “we expect better from you.” Then he commends them for their hard work and practical love for others.
He connects their care for others with their love for God. Love for God is expressed practically by loving people. I can love God by helping, caring for, encouraging and loving the person in front of me.
I was reminded last week that the most important person in the world is the person I’m with right now. The best way to love god is to love the person I’m with right now—to do what is best for them.
Last night, I finished Bob Goff’s book, Love Does. It is a collection of stories from Bob’s life with one theme: love is action, love does what is best for others no matter what it costs you. Love takes risks. Love does.
Love for God is not a nebulous or romantic feeling; it is expressed in practical action that helps the person I’m with right now.
Prayer: Lord, help me love you today by loving the person I’m with right now.
