Love Shines Brightest

Today’s post is simply a quote. Lately chaos has surrounded the church of which I am a member. I’ve been involved in meetings intent on finding peace in that chaos. When I read the following quote I was encouraged and made hopeful. May it do so you to as well!

“Thus love shines brightest when exercised for Jesus’ sake toward the unlovely and seemingly unlovable; joy, when we rejoice in our salvation and our Savior even though sad things surround us; peace when, sure of God’s sovereign providence, we stay calm instead of panicking or getting frazzled. In the same way, patient endurance is most apparent when we stand steady under pain and pressure instead of cutting and running, or crumbling and collapsing.”

–J.I. Packer in Rediscovering Holiness

As always, these are the musings of a mindful disciple. Blessings on your week!
