    Selfishness colors everything around us until common sense and decency gets lost, having been painted over with these shades of gray. This same selfish spirit was working in the hearts of men in Jesus’ day. And that is what our passage is about today.

    Fifty Shades of Grace -Love belongs to God! It not only belongs to Him, it is Him and He is it! God is love! So if anyone has anything to say about love, it would be God Himself.
