Keeping Sabbath

Let love be genuine.

Romans 12:9

ESV


This was Laura Ingalls Wilder's biblical advice for getting along with people.

She was a very sensible lady if you ask me.

  2. I think you meant Romans 12:9? "Let love be without dissimulation." (KJV) Yes, love without pretense. Amen to that! Flowers with a weathered fence - so pretty!

    1. You are correct in that it is Romans 12:9. However, in the ESV version it states, Let love be genuine. Laura would probably have been reading the King James though. I happen to like the ESV better in this instance...normally I prefer King James.

  3. That one simple statement is so relevant today. Being genuine and authentic are being masqueraded as blunt and rude. So much of our world is hurting. Let us pray that they find the One who can heal!

Deep peace of the running wave to you.
Deep peace of the flowing air to you.
Deep peace of the quiet earth to you.
Deep peace of the shining stars to you.
Deep peace of the gentle night to you.
Moon and stars pour their healing light on you
