Is it Love?

By: Joyce C. Lock

W. W. J. D. ?

Jesus said ... Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.

Mt. 22:37-40

So, there you have it. Hang the law ...

Is it Love?

When you're the picture of health,
yet you park in the handicapped zone ...

Is it Love?

If you leave shopping carts in any path but yours,
at the risk of other cars getting scratched ...

Is it Love?

When you scream absurdities at traffic that inconveniences you ...

Is it Love?

What if you use an automobile to intimidate drivers in your path ...

Is it Love?

When you belittle someone who has less than your abilities ...

Is it Love?

Suppose you take the credit and bows for another's accomplishments ...

Is it Love?

When you say things in anger that can damage another's testimony ...

Is it Love?

Maybe someone calls you with an immediate need,
just before a church service,
yet you ignore the request to be on time ...

Is it Love?

When you look down on someone who isn't dressed just right ...

Is it Love?

If you complain when someone takes your seat ...

Is it Love?

When you rush past someone waiting to talk to you,
so as not to miss the person going out the door ...

Is it Love?

Suppose you see the Spirit compelling,
but give the position to one with more credentials.

Is it Love?

When you're faced with a dilemma of choosing God's will over opposition ...

Is it Love?

When God reveals something to you contrary to man's teachings,
yet you keep silent ...

Is it Love?

If you want to know what Jesus Would Do,
just ask yourself ...
