PURSUES RIGHTEOUSNESS

Whoever pursues righteousness and unfailing love will find life, righteousness and honor. – Proverbs 21:21

In our excitement, we try to push people into doing things we want them to do. We cheer, goad and even manipulate them into taking action or performing better. Despite our great efforts, they may not move an inch. It is in these times that it’s most important to love and value that person, especially if they do not take action in the way we want them to. It’s more meaningful to love them with an unfailing love. Are you showing unfailing love to those you are hoping will listen to and join you?
