“…but you shall love your neighbor as yourself…” -Leviticus 19:18

It’s nearly impossible to love our neighbors if we don’t know our neighbors. And herein lies the tension of our times: We live in such a connected world with such limited or nonexistent connection. Relationships matter. Stories matter. -E. Cho

And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ The second is this: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.” -Mark 12:30-31

“I entreat Euodia and I entreat Syntyche to agree in the Lord.” -Philippians 4:2

The source of just about all conflict is attitude, which comes from a lack of knowledge of God. Your theology is going to rule your relationships. What you believe about God will rule how you relate to others. -Steve Wainright from 11/1/2015 Sunday Morning Sermon on Philippians 4:1-4 (Listen Here)

Scripture at Sunrise 1.8.2015

“Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends.” -John 15:13

“If your definition of love stresses affectionate feelings more than unfselfish actions, you will cripple your relationships.” -Tim Keller via Twitter

Scripture at Sunrise 12.1.2014

Sunday Evening | Pastor Steve Wainright | 2 Samuel 13 | A Story of Lust (Audio)
“Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.” -1 Corinthians 13:4-7

Love does not lead into sin. It seeks to protect. It seeks the best for others.
Lust is not rational. You cannot reason with lust. Lust only seeks self-gratification.
