“Do as God does. After all, you are his dear children. Let love be your guide.” (Ephesians 5: 1-2, Contemporary English Version)
God is Love. We are the very children of divine Love. Kindness, compassion, gentleness, affection, tender regard, respect, understanding, is our very nature. We were made to express Love and to receive it as well.
So, follow God’s built-in intention as you think and live. Let that genuine Love that is God lead you, and follow without timidity or argument. The loving way is always the right and effective way because it has God, Principle, Truth behind it. And remember that divine Love, that most perfect Love of God, knows how to love better, more comprehensively, and more powerfully than we might humanly conceive. Allow that higher and truer Love to love you first. Receive this unconditional love unconditionally, without argument, and gratefully. And then it will be easy to utilize that Love toward others in a way that is right and healing.
Do as God does. This isn’t hardship or above us. It is being true to our own selves. It is a sweet release to those qualities that are the very substance of who we are. It is letting go of self and judgment and fear and allowing ourselves to be free and feel whole. It is laying off that heavy burden of personal sense and its complicated thinking, protectiveness, and worry, and simply being the object and expression of easy, natural, powerful, unifying, harmonizing Love.
