To Be Loving and Kind Day to Day

Day is dying in the West, Heaven if filling earth with REST.

“Let brotherly love continue.” Hebrews 13:1

“No member of the family can inclose himself or herself within himself or herself. If/her she/he is filled with the love of Christ, he/she will manifest courtesy, kindness, tender regard for the feelings of others, and will communicate to his associates, by acts of love, a tender, grateful, happy feeling. It will be made manifest that he/she is living for Jesus, and daily learning lessons at His feet, receiving His light and His peace.

“The most careful cultivation of the outward proprieties of life is not sufficient to shut out all fretfulness, harsh judgemnt, and unbecoming speech. True refinement will never be reaveled so long as self is considered as the supreme object. Love must dwell in te heart. A thoroughgoing Christian draws his motives of action from his/her deep heart-love for our Master. Up through the roots of his affection of Chirst springs an unselfish interst in his brethren.

“Of all things that are sought, cherished, and cultivated, there is nothing so valuable in the sight of God as a pure heart, a disposition inbued with thankfulness and peace.

“If the divine harmony of truth and love exists in the heart, it will shine forth in words and actions. . . . The spirit of genuine benevolence must dwell in the heart. Love imparts to its possessor grace, propriety, and comeliness of deportment. Love illuminates the countenance and subdues the voice; it refines and elevates the entire man. It brings him into harmony with God, for it is a heavenly attribute.

“Allow no selfishness to live in the heart or find room in the home. . . . When all are members of the royal family, there will be true politeness in the home life. Each member of the fammily will seek to make it pleasant for every other member.”

Sons and Daughters of God, by Ellen White p. 80, for March 13, 2023.
