Dear Child, your love and devotion to Me is greatly appreciated.
I want to be loved just as you do. Serving Me with love as your motive is the highest praise I can receive. I know it is not easy to be loving and patient with people all the time, but I want you to go beyond your human nature, which is to get irritated when people fall short of your expectations. Rather, react exactly the way I am with you when you fall short of My expectations of you. I know you are not perfect and I want you to realize and think about other people in this light. It will be much easier to be loving and tolerant knowing that I overlook a lot of things you do short of My Will. And remember, there is most always a reason for the way people act, so give them the benefit of the doubt and be loving no matter what they do or do not do. (OK Lord, that’s definitely a good way for me to look at it. T.Y.J.)
I overlook a lot of things you do short of My Will.
