Luke 6:46   “Why do you call me Lord, Lord, and don’t do what I tell you? 

If we are honest with ourselves this verse holds us short.  Christians call Jesus Lord but who among us always does what He tells us to do in His written Word, the Holy Bible.  If you question this read 1 Corinthians 13 where He describes the attributes of love.  I know I do not show all these attributes throughout any day with those closest to me let alone to the others God allows to cross my path.   We slip in and out of allowing His love through the Holy Spirit empower us to love in this way.  Our question is are we willing to allow His Holy Spirit to correct us quickly or do we choose to continue through an action, word spoken or thought in our own self-centered way.  Many times when I am aware of my unloving ways being corrected by Him I find I continue my own way.  Let us learn to stop in mid-track and reach or speak out through His love.
