What does my dislike of snow have to do with a Marvelous Monday? Glad you asked! What makes it marvelous is that even though I dislike it, I make the choice to embrace it because of the joy it brings to my family. This brings to mind some of the commands that God has given us that I may not 'like' to follow all of time, but I have to make the choice to obey them because that what I'm called to as His child. Like loving my neighbor as myself (or more than myself). You haven't met my neighbors! Just kidding, kinda, but there are just some people that are hard to love.
He didn't say I have to like them, but love them. Pray for them. Help them if I have the chance to. Put their needs before my own. Wow...that is just hard to do. But thankfully we have a helper ready and able to jump in. The Holy Spirit is living in you and me. He is there to help us when we don't think we can do it. We don't have to. We can ask God to help us love our neighbor (or snow, ha ha) and the we can choose to DO it.
So love your neighbor today...even if they don't deserve it in your eyes. When it comes right down to it none of us deserve the love that He has so lavishly bestowed on us. Happy Monday :-)
