“If you love those who love you, what benefit is that to you? For even sinners love those who love them. (Luke 6:32 ESV)
И если любите любящих вас, какая вам за то благодарность? ибо и грешники любящих их любят. (Луки 6:32 Russian)
Our Father who is in heaven ~ thank you, dear Lord, for making it possible for people in all the nations to call upon your holy name. O Lord God, help everyone today whose faith is wavering or leaning toward bitterness because of the current pandemic sweeping across our nation and the world. Forgive us Father for times when we strived to build friendships with people only if it would benefit our agenda. Replace such childish thinking and behavior with the wisdom of your pure love that seeks our joy and peace. We fervently pray in the precious name of Jesus, Amen.
