I can not change anyone, but I can love a few.

What does it mean to be “rooted in God’s love” on a daily basis? Jesus said: "The greatest commandment: 'Love the Lord your God.' The second is like it: 'Love your neighbor as yourself."(Matthew 22:36-40) This is easier said than done, isn’t it? The more we unpack what this means as a church and as individuals the challenging it becomes. There are people that are easy to love. They’re the ones who love us in return, the ones in which we see spiritual change, those are the easy ones to love. I ran across the following from Craig Groeschel, he reminds us:


I am not God.
I am not the Holy Spirit.
I cannot change anyone,
But I can love a few.

Let’s give that a try this week without expecting anything in return.
