Your love never changes ♥

Sometimes we all fall short. My brother and I argue and bicker a lot of the time, and it almost always comes down to.. what's fair. Who wins this argument, or who benefits from it. I guess I can still be somewhat stubborn that way. We often think we want things to be fair; when in reality we want them to be fair only when it benefits us.

I was doing my daily readings today, and I came across this verse:

"You have heard that it was said, 'An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth.' But I say to you, Do not resist an evildoer. But if anyone strikes you on the right cheek, turn the other also; and if anyone wants to sue you and take your coat, give your cloak as well; and if anyone forces you to go one mile, go also the second mile. Give to everyone who begs from you, and do not refuse anyone who wants to borrow from you." - Matthew 5:38-42

Go the extra mile to be nice. Bend over backwards. Show grace. That's what He has taught us. My parents have too, always told us to be nice to each other. And let me tell you, it is most definitely not easy at times. We have our disagreements, differences and misunderstandings. Of course at the end of the day, we're family and we love each other no matter what. But what He is telling us is to show the love that He has for us. We love because He first loved us. It is not the easiest thing to do, as we often want to give other people what they deserve. But ultimately when we do - we're a reflection of God's love and grace.
