Quit Trying to Do it Yourself

I’m irritated when people who should know better give grace with one hand and then take it away with the other. “Of course God loves you,” they say, and just when I’m ready to break out in song, they add, “but don’t let it go to your head.”
Love Trumps Everything
Monday November 14, 2016steve's devotional •
I was so busy practicing my religion, getting my theology right, teaching the truth, and working for God that I almost missed love. And love trumps everything else—always. I understand that better now because I’ve been loved longer.
