The effect of a great love…

“The effect of a great love is always to cleanse. When people really and truly fall in love, their love compels them to goodness.”

From my morning readings in “The Letters to the Galatians and Ephesians”, Daily Study Bible Series, by William Barclay.

This is especially true when we fall in love with God.  As my love for God grows, I find myself growing away from selfishness and self-absorption.  I want to serve!  And serving makes my heart feel lighter and cleaner.

Father, thank you for the cleansing power of Your love and of our love for You.
