How are we to love our neighbors?

Submitted by Stephen Winters

 

It has been said that we are to love our enemies, pray for those who despitefully use us. What does all this mean?

Jesus quotes as saying, if you... you to go one mile, go two miles.   Give to him who asks of you.... and your Father in heaven.

In aother place it says that we are to be as wise as serpants, but be as harmless as doves

Thoughtfulness In Playing Games

Submitted by Stephen Winters

On the first Friday of each month we open our home to our friends, neighbors and people from church who want to come over and play table games. Last night was game night at our house. Our living room and kitchen were filled with food,  tables, chairs, games, and people. It was a lot of fun.

During the earlier part of the night I had been playing another game. After that game ended, I looked around at what the others in the room were playing to see if there was some game I could join.

The Spirit of the Virtues Causes Growth

Submitted by Stephen Winters

It could be said that practicing the virtues cause growth, but it goes deeper than that. Just practicing the virtues can make us just as legalistic as following the law. For us to truly grow we must take the spirit of the virtues within us. We must look at the meaning and the intent of the virtues. This is more that us taking the virture inside of and saying, for instance, I love people. For us to truly have love in our lives, we must become love. Just as God is love, we also must be love. (This applies to all the virtues .....) What does this mean practically?
