Love is the law that matters

When you love others, you complete what the law has been after all along. The law code—don’t sleep with another person’s spouse, don’t take someone’s life, don’t take what isn’t yours, don’t always be wanting what you don’t have, and any other “don’t” you can think of — finally adds up to this: Love other people as well as you do yourself. You can’t go wrong when you love others. When you add up everything in the law code, the sum total is love.
But make sure that you don’t get so absorbed and exhausted in taking care of all your day-by-day obligations that you lose track of the time and doze off, oblivious to God. The night is about over, dawn is about to break. Be up and awake to what God is doing!
(Romans 13:8-12, The Message)

Lord, please help me to live your law of love in my life! When I’m feeling overwhelmed by the needs of those you have asked me to care for or support, help me to know that the most loving way to behave is always the best way and Your will. Please help me not to get so caught up in all the busy-ness of doing that I forget about being, being still with You. Thank You!

[Tweet “When we feel stuck in the busy-ness of doing, we need to stop and BE – be still with God. “]
