Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up;
does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; 1Corinthians 13:4 – 5
A person with a mind that loves vengeance would have argued with God if they were in the position of Moses, when God sent him to Pharaoh. He would have justifiably said the Israelites are ungrateful people who almost got him into trouble after killing an Egyptian who was beating an Israelite; when he tried intervening in a fight between two Israelites they threw his kindness back at him and he fled to Midian for fear of being arrested and killed by Pharaoh. And now God was sending him back to Egypt to rescue these same ungrateful people. Being the meek man that he was, Moses obeyed God but the journey to the Promised Land was also very challenging for him. The people grumbled at every given discomfort. God was sometimes fed up with their complaints and threatened to wipe them out in the wilderness but it was still Moses who intervened begging God to show them mercy.
In life you must be kind to others even if they are not to you. Keep spreading love even if you do not get it back. Just remember one thing; it is not between you and others, it is always between you and God. Moses knew for sure that the responsibility to lead the children of Israel out of Egypt to the Promised Land was a matter between him and his God and did not allow what other human beings were doing or saying to affect his commitment to the will of God for his life. Many Christians fail to do the will of God for their lives because they allow other people’s attitude to get in the way between them and God. The truth is that no matter how good a person you are, there will always be someone criticizing you. Criticisms are not meant to stop you but help you get better and remain steadfast in what you have been called to do. It is often said, the devil does not fight useless worthless things; the devil fights the will and purpose of God in your life. Those who hate and talk evil about you are agents of the devil on assignment to stop the good work you are doing. Only make sure that you live according to the will of God for your life.
Liberation thought: Loving others is the great service to God

• O Lord envelop me with your love
• Fire consume every satanic agent of assignment to frustrate my efforts
• The love of the Lord is shed abroad in my heart in Jesus mighty name.
