WILL WE EVER LEARN
“Wherefore let him that thinketh he standeth take heed lest he fall.”
1 Corinthians 10:12 KJV
I have a pinball game that I play on my computer for the arthritis in my fingers. It keeps my fingers from being stiff. I know that I need to keep my eyes on the ball because if I don’t I will lose the game. I know this and I have written devotions about it yet I still take my eyes off the ball at times and then I lose the game.
My Mother used to say to me when I disobeyed her when I lived at home “I have told you and told you not to do this, yet you still do it. Will you ever learn?” I think if we will listen with our heart, we will hear God say to us, “I have told you and told you not to do this, but you still do it”. Will we ever learn?
Jesus has commanded us to love one another unconditionally. It is not an option; it is a commandment but can we honestly say we always love one another unconditionally as He loves us? “A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another” (John 13:34).
Many times we try to do things without first asking God if He wants us to do it and without asking Jesus to help us. Jesus said “I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing” (John 15:5).
May God help us to do the things that make Him happy and help us to love unconditionally as Jesus loves us. Many times we put conditions on our love but that is not how Jesus loves us. He loves us no matter how many times we hurt Him. If we want others to love us, we had better love them.
