Wisdom-Trek / Creating a Legacy
Welcome to Day 778 of our Wisdom-Trek, and thank you for joining me.
This is Guthrie Chamberlain, Your Guide to Wisdom
God Is Love – Ask Gramps
Thank you for joining us for our 5 days per week wisdom and legacy building podcast. This is Day 778 of our trek, and it is time for our Philosophy Friday series. Each Friday we will ponder some of the basic truths and mysteries of life and how they can impact us in creating our living legacy. Due to a heavy travel and activity-filled schedule for the next two weeks, our Wisdom-Trek episodes will be shorter so that I can pre-record them.
As we start this new year, I thought it would be good to invest this time discovering God and His key attributes. Yesterday we explored that God Is Just. Today’s attribute is…
God Is Love
Because God is love…He is unconditionally committed to my well-being.“This is real love–not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as a sacrifice to take away our sins,” 1 John [4:10].
God’s love is unconditional. It is not based on how good you are. He loves you because He is God and you are His creation.
God’s love never fails. His love will not be terminated because of disappointment or a change of heart. He defines love, and He demonstrates what true love looks like – Jesus gave His life on your behalf.
We, in turn, are to love God wholeheartedly. God has created us to find our greatest joy and fulfillment in loving Him.
God also enables us to be channels of His supernatural love. On our own, we are incapable of loving as we should, but God has an unending supply of love. It is for us to claim, to enjoy, and to share with others.
When we begin to love God, love our neighbors as ourselves, and love our enemies, society will change for the better through the transforming power of God’s love.
“Nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord,” Romans [8:39].
Monday we will continue to discover God’s character exploring how God is merciful. Thank you for joining me on this trek called life. Encourage your friends and family to join us and then come along on Monday for another day of our Wisdom-Trek, Creating a Legacy.
If you would like to listen to any of the past 777 daily treks or read the associated journals, they are all available at Wisdom-Trek.com. You can also subscribe to iTunes or Google Play so that each day’s trek will be downloaded automatically.
Thank you for allowing me to be your guide, mentor, and most of all your friend as I serve you through the Wisdom-Trek podcast and journal.
As we take this trek together, let us always:
- Live Abundantly (Fully)
- Love Unconditionally
- Listen Intentionally
- Learn Continuously
- Lend to others Generously
- Lead with Integrity
- Leave a Living Legacy Each Day
This is Guthrie Chamberlain reminding you to Keep Moving Forward, Enjoy Your Journey, and Create a Great Day Every Day! See you on Monday!
