Leadership Follow-up

God is so good! I'm still searching for more of his heart in leadership issues, (see the previous post)  but I am thankful for a few scriptures he brought to mind as I was in prayer this week.

I Peter 4:8
Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins.

Father, teach us what it means to love like this.
The kind of love that  is patient and  kind.
Does not envy, does not boast,  is not proud.
Does not dishonor others,  is not self-seeking,  is not easily angered,  keeps no record of wrongs.
The kind of Love that does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.
Love that always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.(I Cor. 13:4-7)

I John 1:7
But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin.

Father, I know that in your Light we see Light. Help us to live there, to camp there. Your light keeps the darkness away. The dark of criticism, slander, unforgiveness, pride and self ambition. We need Fellowship with you but also with one another. Thank you, Jesus for making it possible through your death and resurrection.

Scripture from the New International Version


  1. Camping in the light. Love that and will be praying to do that this week.

  2. Dear Ruth, Thanks for this post reminding us of the "agape," self-sacrificing love epitomized by Jesus Himself. Your blog is a blessing and I am now following it. Thanks so much for visiting and commenting on Saved by Grace!

  3. Amen. We should always strive to love like He does as much as is possible. I like the thought of camping there in His light.


Thanks for sharing your response!
