Read 2 Peter 1:5-9.

There are so many wonderful things we could say about this passage, and it would be great to meditate on them all! But for now, here’s something interesting:

Isn’t it cool that God acknowledges there is a difference between mutual affection (a caring and loving feeling towards someone) and actual love (a self-sacrificial choice and action)? They are independent of each other, and we are told we should have both in increasing measure.

Pray for the Lord to show you how to have both.
