From the CEV: He is the truth, and you heard about Him and learned about Him. You were told that your foolish desires will destroy you and and that you must give up your old way of life with all its bad habits. Let the Spirit change your way of thinking and make you into a new person. . . Let love be your guide. Eph. 4:20 -5:2.
Because He loves us, we love Him. Because He tells us to love one another as we love ourselves, our lovefest begins at home. Old bad habits are hard to die and can be easily resurrected if we forget that we need to love "us." The Spirit of the living God will help us change, but are we willing to follow His direction? If love is guiding us, we will.
Part of loving myself is passing on the extra sweets. That old cream filled donut habit is dying, but there has been no funeral yet!
