Some people are bossy. Some people think they know better. Some people think we don't know anything. No one likes to be told what to do. God isn't bossy. God does know better. God knows we don't know anything. The reason God commands us to love is because He knows that when we are left to our own devices, we will choose not to love or to only love when it suits us.
Lord, help me to realize that You command me when I am unable to make the right choice myself.
