Thoughts On Love

Love from the centre of who you are; don't fake it. Run for dear life from evil; hold on for dear life to good. Be good friends who love deeply; practice playing second fiddle.

second fiddle

Don't burn out; keep yourselves fuelled and aflame. Be alert servants of the Master, cheerfully expectant. Don't quit in hard times; pray all the harder. Help needy Christians; be inventive in hospitality.


Bless your enemies; no cursing under your breath. Laugh with your happy friends when they're happy; share tears when they're down. Get along with each other; don't be stuck-up. Make friends with nobodies; don't be the great somebody.


Don't hit back; discover beauty in everyone. If you've got it in you, get along with everybody. Don't insist on getting even; that's not for you to do. "I'll do the judging," says God. "I'll take care of it."


Our Scriptures tell us that if you see your enemy hungry, go buy that person lunch, or if he's thirsty, get him a drink. Your generosity will surprise him with goodness. Don't let evil get the best of you; get the best of evil by doing good.

[from Romans chapter 12, “The Message” translation]

Happy Valentine’s Day, everybody!

  1. Thanks for this, Angela - and for your last few posts too. I've just had a good browse over what I've been missing and have been inspired, challenged, entertained and informed - as always!

  2. Thats so true. You are so good with words. I shall take that through the week with me.

  3. I love the 'surprise him with goodness' bit.


Always glad to hear from you - thanks for stopping by!
