God can tell when our love for Him isn’t real.

So, let me say this first…

Before you judge someone else’s love, make sure you are truly reciprocating God’s love for you. Whenever someone else’s love doesn’t measure up to your expectations, ask yourself does yours measure up to God’s.

We must always be patient with one another and remember the fact that when your spouse, your child, your parent, your friend your church member, your Pastor…or when YOU fall short, it doesn’t mean that there is no love. It just means that our love isn’t perfect.

And, pray for the discernment to know when love isn’t genuine. Even when it’s not, it does not free us from the responsibility to make sure ours is. That’s what makes it love.

Matthew 15:8  (NKJV)

8 ‘These people draw near to Me with their mouth,
And[a] honor Me with their lips,
But their heart is far from Me.


God bless you! I'm a husband, father and ordained Minister since 1996. I serve as an Associate Minister at Oak Spring Church Arlington TN, a suburb of Memphis. I'm a professional Copywriter for a Fortune 500 company, published Gospel songwriter and owner of an independent label, Al-Go-Rhythm Music. My main spiritual gift is Exhortation...I'm a natural encourager. I love the word of God and sharing it from a "Wow, I never thought of it like that before" perspective. There's so much fresh revelation in God's word that is just as relevant today as it was as it unfolded. I hope my daily devotionals enhance your walk with God, taking you beyond BLESSED to BLESSTIFIED.
