Unconditional approval creates chaos

True love is unconditional, but when approval becomes unconditional, chaos ensues. God’s unconditional love is a call to unconditional character–to always do right. Think, live, and do right, unconditionally–even love your enemies.

God loves us so much that He disapproves of how we cause pain for ourselves and others. Love can disagree and love can disapprove, but love isn’t unkind.

There’s no excuse
For verbal abuse.
Let’s call a truce
And put kindness to use!

Be a love-lighter. Brighten people’s hearts by showing them God’s love.

Life is conditional. Your choices and behaviors create certain conditions. If you want to be happier, make happier choices. When bad choices become habitual, life stays filled with turbulence.

Improve your choices. That’s what Jesus meant when He said to repent.

Self-focus hampers happiness. Self-forgetfulness is happiness.

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences in non-traditional church, called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia." If you need encouragement, search for: Elephants Encouraging The Room and/or check out my Amazon author page. Thank you!
