HIS LOVE IS GREATER THAN MINE
Have you ever done something to help a friend, and ended
up hurting him instead? Was it something you were certain would bring relief,
but all it did was bring more pain? Sometimes in an attempt to lessen a friend's
pain and ease a breaking heart, we attempt to fix something that we don't really
understand. Only the Holy Spirit does. Sometimes the Holy Spirit does guide and
give direction to encourage our friends, but it is always His place to do the
work. We can't fix anything. Only He can. Look at Job's friends. They thought
that were helping Job with their advice, but they were only hurting with their
words and accusations. They really didn't understand the larger picture, and
neither do we. The best we can do is just be there and listen.
Lord, help us to be able to always say....
There is no greater love than when we give our lives for
our friends. We must lay down all our human judgment or preconception or
expectation. We must release all this so then we are free to love. We just love
with His love, and then all things are possible.
