Notable Quote: J.C. Ryle

J.C. Ryle (1816 – 1900) on Biblical love . . .

Biblical love will show in a Christian’s actions, making him ready to do good to everyone, without looking for any reward. It will show itself in willingness to bear evil. It will make him patient when provoked, forgiving, meek, and humble. He will often deny himself for the sake of peace and will be more interested in promoting peace than in securing his own rights. Biblical love will show in a Christian’s general attitude. We will be kind, unselfish, good-tempered and considerate, gentle and courteous, thoughtful of others’ comfort, concerned for others’ feelings and more willing to give than to receive. True love never envies, and never rejoices in people’s troubles.

Walking with God
