Week 2. The second prime focus for living God's way is love. Chose love, live love in all you do. God is love and love is God, so
in choosing love, you chose God and vice versa. What does love mean to you? One of the most powerful descriptions of love is set
our in 1 Corinthian's 13: QUOTE. I remember when I first read it properly, really thinking about what it meant to love. To
actively chose love. Having gone through many parts of the Bible, love means so much including : Love is patient, kind, trust,
truth, integrity, friendship, humble, forgive, wisdom, understanding, faith, hope, good, quick to listen, slow to speak, prudent,
gentle, slow to anger, seek advice, diligent, shrewd, strong, compassion, noble , right , pure, lovely , admirable, thankful, peace,
forgives, being gratefulNow practice each day just thinking 'GOD is LOVE' and you will begin to focus on GOD and Love more than you have ever done before.
To help you do this, consider the Bible verse ' Set your hearts on things above, not on earthly things. What ever is true, noble ,
right , pure, lovely , admirable - if anything is excellent or praiseworthy - think about such things.'
Set your hearts on things above, not on earthly things. What ever is true, noble , right , pure, lovely , admirable - if anything is
excellent or praiseworthy - think about such things.
You are now well on the way to living God's way.You may be asking yourself - is it this simple? The answer is yes and no. Yes - it is this simple and it works. No - you will
find it hard to keep to this every single moment of your life. But keep trying, and the more you do it, the more do it and the less
you will not do it. Like going on a diet - the theory is simple, ie eat less, but the practice is more difficult.Love is NOT
Rude, self seeking, foolish, easily angered, harsh, boastful, jealous, success & failure, worry, submit to the world's rules.I promise you that your life will have changed dramatically in the last 2 weeks. And believe you me God has so much for you in the
next 2 weeks, 2 years, 2 decades, 2 generations! Just think about it. Your thinking of God and Love can only grow if you keep
practicing thinking about them.

Phillipians 4:8 is one of my favorites. You are right. Reading is easy; application is the requirement. "How will they hear without a preacher"... Preach!

Thank you, I read the verse you referred to. Philippians 4:8.


" 8Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things."

This is a verse I have studied with my two christian colleagues at work. I find it very hard to stick to this as there is logic within me which believes in criticising others. This verse runs totally contrary to that and so I am convinced that my logic must be wrong.
