The Romans Reflection: Genuine Affection

27th December

Love each other with genuine affection, and take delight in honouring each other.

Romans 12:10

What does genuine love look like for you? This wonderful verse in Romans show us practically what love means and how we can live it out in our lives! Simply put, love hates what is wrong, loves what is good, is not fake or pretentious or conditional and most importantly, love uplifts others.

Love delights in honouring others. What a fantastic encouragement and challenge. Love doesn’t beat down others or point out their faults but rather love wants other people to feel uplifted, great about themselves, great in knowing who they are as God’s child and how and who He has made them to be. Love encourages, even at the givers own expense. Love makes others feel loved.

We are incredibly loved so may we too honour and love others and taking delight in doing so!!
