There are times when we say things we don't mean or the things we say come out the wrong way. While it seems common to "attack" first and then figure out the intent, we may find ourselves better off if we start by assuming the best intentions. If we start from a place of love, where will it lead us?
God loves each and every one of us. Even when we may appear to be "unlovable," God is by our side. If we model our lives after His example, we can begin to show others God's love. We can allow His love to fill our words and actions. We can respond to others out of love and compassion. Building off of God's love, we can change our lives and the way that we view the world. We can assume the best and live with an attitude of love as long as we seek God and trust His guiding hand in our lives!
Assume the best and begin in a place that is filled with God's love, then wait to see where God leads you!
Thank You for leading me and showing me Your love. Help me to always assume the best and to approach myself and others with an attitude of Your love. In Jesus' name I pray, amen.
