Your View of God Determines Your Behavior

How are we in the body of Christ to love, accept, and forgive one another? Just as God in Christ has loved, accepted, and forgiven us! … Whether we realize it or not, we will treat other people with the same measure of love, acceptance and forgiveness that we (rightly or wrongly) think we are receiving from God. We will never love one another with a higher degree of love than we think we are receiving from God. In other words, if I think that God likes me when I’m good but is hammering me when I’m bad, how do you think I’ll treat you?

Exactly the same way!

Quoted in George, B. (1989). Classic Christianity. Eugene, Or: Harvest House, p. 160.
