Are you tempted to quit on love?

Is there anything worse than being tempted to quit on love?  Sure, it might sound good to stop loving someone while your mind keeps fresh wounds alive.

Watch for opportunities to work

Don’t despise menial work!  Don’t pawn it off!  Instead do those activities you could do in your sleep, like laundry, mowing the grass, stocking shelves, driving to and from work – whatever they may be in your life so you can work internally. Do important work of God internally while doing those things which don’t require…
