When we have to "think" of words to be kind and encouraging; "we're NOT". When we have to consciously "Love" and be "Courteous"; "we DON'T". When we ask the HOLY SPIRIT to show us; "we begin to speak graciously, and the words have a lasting impression on those hearing, and we answer in such a way that others hear GOD'S VOICE" (Colossians 4:6). Did we experience GOD'S Love by someone constantly telling us what we are doing wrong? Or, even when we deserved condemnation for our actions; did someone show us GOD'S LOVE? Did their "graciousness" cause us to see ourselves and others as GOD sees us? Was the HOLY SPIRIT so dominate in our lives that we no longer had to "think" of words that were kind and encouraging? WAS IT A TIME WHEN LOVE WAS NOT SOMETHING WE DID; BUT WAS SOMETHING WE WERE?
