MY LAW IS LOVE!
God: Why do you think Jesus healed Simon Peter's mother-in-law even though it was forbidden to do so on the Sabbath?
Me: I think He understood that love is the highest Law.
God: Right! Refusing to heal her would not have pleased Me. Jesus understood I had given Him the power to heal and He used it as an act of
love. Do the same with your gifts.
