Our words through a Love Filter

"This is my commandment: love one another."
John 15:17

Jesus didn't just suggest to us that we love one's a commandment!  Each of us has thousands of opportunities to choose to treat others with love each day.  They come around so fast that we may not have the time to sit and weigh out what is the more loving option for response.  People say or do things and we snap to judgment or response and then the palm-to-the-forehead moment occurs later--"Why did I say that?" Today, let's be aware of all the chances we have to choose to respond in a kind and loving way--the way Jesus commands us to respond (not merely suggests!) Before we speak to someone let's try to send our words through a Love Filter in our brains before they actually escape our mouths.  Do these words sound loving? Will they bring life? Would Jesus say this?  Would I say this to Jesus? Yikes! there ya go! Love, heidi
