Christ Has Loved Us!

Christ has loved us
“There is no other solution to the marvelous mysteries of His Incarnation and Sacrificial Death but this: Christ has loved us.

There is not a circumstance of our Lord’s history which is not another form or manifestation of love.

His incarnation is love stooping.
His sympathy is love weeping.
His compassion is love supporting.
His grace is love acting.
His teaching is the voice of love.
His silence is the repose of love.
His patience is the restraint of love.
His obedience is the labor of love.
His suffering is the travail of love.
His cross is the altar of love.
His death is the burnt offering of love.
His resurrection is the triumph of love.
His ascension into heaven is the enthronement of love.
His sitting down at the right hand of God is the intercession of love.

Such is the deep, the vast, the boundless ocean of Christ’s love!”
—Octavius Winslow, The Sympathy of Christ

Kindness is on her tongue...

Kind words are sympathetic, compassionate, and biblically loving. A kind woman is apt to say something like. "I know this must be hard for you. Is there anything I can do to make it easier?" or "I'm so sorry that this is hard. Let me help you." She is kind when she opens her mouth.

~Martha Peace from Becoming a Titus 2 Woman.

Proverbs 31:26 The excellent wife "opens her mouth in wisdom and the teaching of kindness is on her tongue."

Be mindful and purposeful today that all of your words are kind.
