Love Always Fits
Are you ever surprised by and mindful of all the disharmony and conflict in our world. People are often bickering and arguing. They behave like misfits and they are misfits. Hatred never fits anyone. Not the haters or the objects of their hatred. The love of God is what produces harmony. It is the only thing that can do that. When you are having trouble loving some misfit, try to remember that love always fits. There is always a way to love the unlovely. It is not always easy to find it but there is always a way. Difficult as it is to love our enemies and even some of our friends it is the fruit of the Spirit. Love is the thing that can make misfits harmonious. The Holy Spirit will never run out of love. The love of God is inexhaustible. And we will never run out of people who need love. Love is impossible for our flesh. That is why we must walk in the Spirit.
Romans 7:18a: For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing: . . .
Galatians 5:22a: But the fruit of the Spirit is love, . . .
Galatians 5:16: This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.
