Love does no wrong to others, so love fulfills the requirements of God’s law. Romans 13:10 NLT
Society has a tendency to label others. It starts when children call each other names. Children will do certain things because they are children and need adults to guide them in appropriate behavior. Sometimes, it seems that adults behave worst than children. Acts gives an account of the life of Stephen. The apostles needed help in ministry so they decided to use some lay men in the church. One of the men selected was Stephen, a man full of faith and the Holy Spirit.
There were those who wanted to derail the work of the ministry, so they targeted Stephen. When they couldn’t find fault with him, they made up a story. Stephen was arrested and put on trial. After lying witnesses made their accusations, Stephen had the opportunity to respond. He spoke eloquently about their history and God’s work through the ages. Stephen’s words pricked their ears and they dragged him outside the city and stoned him to death. With his dying breath, Stephen asked God to forgive them. Stephen loved his God and he loved people. Ecclesiastes 12:13 says, “That’s the whole story. Here now is my final conclusion: Fear God and obey his commands, for this is everyone’s duty.” The love of God in you makes it impossible to harm another.
Thought for Today: Love fulfills Gods law
