Today my daily devotion is based on Romans 13:10, “Love does no wrong to a neighbor; therefore, love is the fulfilling of the law.”
Love is an important word, one that is often completely misunderstood. It does not mean being friendly and well-meaning. What it does mean is that a person who has love will do what the Law requires. The word ‘love’ is Christ himself, who dwells in those who believe in Jesus as their Savior. His love is the fulfillment of the Law.
Would you please pray with me the prayer for today: Lord, when I am focused on you instead of self, it is obvious what I should do concerning my neighbor. Please forgive me and strengthen me on account of Jesus when I become preoccupied with myself and my needs. Bring me back to you so that I see those in need that you want me to help. In your name, I pray. Amen.
