My computer stopped working
right and no matter what I did to fix it nothing
worked. My brother-in-law who is a computer expert
advised me to format my computer and it would be
just like sending it to the factory to be fixed.
Many times we
try to format our hearts by being nice to others
and by doing good deeds. That is just like trying
to fix a computer that is broke, it will not work.
Our feeble efforts to love someone in our own
strength has never worked and will never work. It
is only as others see and feel the Love of Jesus
in us that they will know that Jesus does love
been trying to be nicer to your family and
friends? Do you get frustrated because it seems no
matter what you do to be kind to others it is not
appreciated? We need to go to Jesus and ask Him to
take His Broom of Mercy and Grace and sweep out
all the bitterness and resentment in our hearts
toward other people.
We are not capable of
loving others as Jesus wants us to love others in
our own strength. It takes Jesus planting His Love
in our hearts to format our hearts to minister to
people. I urge you to ask Jesus to format your
heart with His Compassion and Mercy so that you
can effectively love others.
