Today’s realization, Love cannot be found outside obedience to God. The reason being, God is love. Stay the course.

The most valuable commodities in life are not commodities at all but people God chooses to turn in your favor. People who for all the right reasons and the best of motives believe in your righteousness. From the youngest to the oldest those who love you with the love of the Lord.
