Often, we do things because of what other people are going to think if we don't. That's one of the things that causes so much overload and stress in people's lives, is doing all kinds of things that there's no real anointing or no grace from God on them to do.
If I'm going to do this, I want to do it right. I want to be an honest person. I want to be an honest Christian. I really, really, really want to hear, "Well done. Thou good and faithful servant."
Love God, love people—sounds simple enough. So why is it so hard to live out? Maybe it’s because we're going about it all wrong. Love isn’t about following the right rules—it’s about having The Right Heart.
