As I prepare to hit the road again this afternoon, the weather forecast of rain turning to snow does not excite me too much. I am more impressed with the lush green vegetation in the picture above that has me yearning for warm summer days. Living in a milder climate is certainly appealing at times, but I digress.
Back to following directions:
1. Love your enemies.
2. Bless those who persecute you.
3. "Be merciful as your Heavenly Father is merciful." (Luke 6:36)
4. "Be perfect as your Heavenly Father is perfect." (Matthew 5:48)
These are all pretty simple directions. How are we doing at following them?
