Work Hard For Love!

In Apostle Paul's second letter to Timothy, he encouraged his spiritual son to be strong, confident, calm in all situations and prepared for any thing, because all followers of Jesus Christ will be persecuted.  

Paul advised him to turn away from worldly affairs, like godless chatter, resentment, foolish arguments and quarreling about words.  Also, Timothy needed to lead a holy life of righteousness, faith, love, truth, kindness, gentleness and peace.

This is excellent advice on how Christians should conduct their lives today.  If the followers of Christ exhibited these holy examples, their churches would be peaceful and filled with love.  

However, being loving requires hard work to accomplish, and it is so much easier to quarrel and blame.
