Ephesians 4:32 Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.

1 Peter 5:7 Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.

John 13:34 “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another.

These are instructional scriptures given to us by God. God doesn’t give us these scriptures to test us to see if we’ll follow them. He gives us these scriptures for a good reason.

When we obey these scriptures, we position ourselves to experience an amazing abundant life. God is our Creator and He knows how we should best function. He knows walking in unforgiveness, hate, and worry won’t do our bodies any good. It’s been scientifically proven these things lead to an early grave.

Certain instructional scriptures may seem weird, unnecessary, or foolish, but trust God has a good reason for us to follow them. We don’t debate with the car company who tells us how to maintain our cars, so don’t debate with our Creator Who knows the best way to maintain our lives.
