May 13 Daily Verse

Romans 13:9-10

For the commandments, “You shall not commit adultery,” “You shall not murder,” “You shall not steal,” “You shall not bear false witness,” “You shall not covet,” and if there is any other commandment, are all summed up in this saying, namely, “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” Love does no harm to a neighbor; therefore love is the fulfillment of the law.

 

Father, we know that You are love. We also know that we aren’t able to love as You do. We have trouble seeing past the behaviors of some people. Sometimes what they wear and how they look have us wanting to turn away.  Often attitudes of others toward us simply aren’t lovable. But still You ask us to love. Fill us with the love You want us to have. Work with us to change our attitudes so that we can see people as You do.
