Read: I Corinthians 13:4-7

Love is not an emotion, it’s a decision we make every single day.  Adam Hamilton reflects on, what I would call, the way we love others.  He writes, “…we assume the best of others, not the worst.  We give them the benefit of the doubt.  We speak well of others, not poorly.  We treat them as we hope to be treated.  We listen more and talk less.  We walk in other people’s shoes and try to understand what they believe and why.”   (Now this is really important), ‘This does not mean we give up our convictions, but it does mean we test them” (Hamilton, Revival: Faith as Wesley Lived It. Nashville: Abington Press, 2014, page 28).

The Daily Faith Builder will resume on July 16th.
