Coffee for Your Heart | Question


In her book, Growing Friendships, Tracy Klehn writes:

"Lord, I need your help to do the loving thing...I confess that oftentimes I can get caught up in who is right and who is wrong...when you are calling me to look at the real question, "What is the loving thing to do?" Show me when it is grace you want me to extend and show me when it is truth. Help me work out differences with a heart that is humble and honest. Help me take responsibility when I have wounded another with my attitude, words, or actions. Help me extend forgiveness...keeping in mind all that you have forgiven me for."

What a beautiful question to ask with everyone who crosses our paths.

      Lord, what is the loving thing to do?

  1. Thank you for this Loralee, truly! It is where I find myself this week, and I must confess that I get hung up on what is right and wrong because of my strong sense of justice. I appreciate the reminder. Dropping in from Coffee for Your Heart:)
