[December 27]
Let all your deeds be done in love. I Corinthians 16:14 (Diaglott)
GOD is the very personification of sympathy and love. As the Scriptures declare, "God is love." And all who will be God's children, developed in his likeness, will be loving children. As John says, "He that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him." In proportion as we develop strength of character as new creatures, this quality of love increases. In addition, we should find our judgment also becoming more accurate. Those who are developed in the Spirit of the Lord have better judgment than they formerly had. As the days go by, they know better how to sympathize with the world; how to deal with mankind; they are getting more and more of the wisdom which cometh from above. Z'14-77 R5417:2(Hymn 23)
