More than beautiful words

Grace, mercy, and peace will be with us, from God the Father and from Jesus Christ the Father’s Son, in truth and love. 2 Jn. 1:3 (ESV)

Grace, mercy, peace, truth, love are beautiful words. Just saying them is calming. Living them is a bit more challenging. What if we desired grace, mercy, peace, truth, and love for each other as much as we desire them for ourselves? What if our words, our actions, and our attitudes reflected these ideas?

Lord, make grace, mercy, peace, truth, and love more than beautiful words in my life.
