Truth For Today

SATAN’S BILL OF GOODS

But fornication and all uncleanness or covetousness, let it not even be named among you, as is fitting for saints; neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor coarse jesting,which are not fitting, but rather giving of thanks.

[EPHESIANS 5:3 – 4]

God’s love and the love of His children is forgiving, unconditional, and self-sacrificing, but you can be sure Satan will pervert that. Worldly love is shallow, selfish, sensual, and sexual, and Satan has sold that definition of love to the world.

In contrast to the world’s love, today’s verse concludes by indicating that we are to give thanks. Paul said, “In everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you” (1 Thess. 5:18). When we are thankful for everything, we step outside ourselves, because thanksgiving is directed toward God.

Instead of taking from people, love them in a way that communicates thankfulness. Remember, God’s love is unselfish and thankful, but the world’s love is selfish and thankless.
