Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another. No man hath seen God at any time. If we love one another, God dwelleth in us, and his love is perfected in us.

—1 John 4:11-12 (KJV)

Thoughts on Today's Verse...
Can you imagine what an honor it is to have the Creator of the universe, the Lord God Almighty, living inside of you! And when we love each other, that is exactly what happens. When our hearts are full of love, there is room for God. When they are not full of love, we leave God little room to take up residence and produce his character in us. Let God complete his love in you. Make a commitment to do loving things for others today!

My Prayer...
Abba Father, it is so comforting to know that you are not far away — that I live in you and you live in me. Help me see others with your eyes and respond to their needs with your heart so that your love may be complete in me. In the name of Jesus, the Servant and Savior of all, I pray. Amen.

Why do you make me look at injustice? Why do you tolerate wrong? . . . Habakkuk 1:3

Tolerance seems to be the greatest virtue in our culture. Habakkuk complained to God that He seemed to tolerate wrong. God may not move as quickly as we wish. But He will move against evil, sometimes in ways mysterious to us. It is our tolerance of evil that grieves the Lord.

Father, help me. Often I am tolerant of evil and intolerant of good people who hold doctrinal views different from mine.
