Scripture: Let no debt remain outstanding, except the continuing debt to love one another, for whoever loves others has fulfilled the law. (Romans 13:8)
Prayer: Dear God, help me to love others as a reflection of the love you have shown me. Out of the overflow of your work in my heart, I want to serve others in love.
Reflection: The best friendships aren’t based on mutual benefit. “Win-win” is nothing more than good business, or more accurately in the context of personal relationships, selfishness. A by-product of servanthood may be mutual benefit, but this is not the goal.
