Love


The more I work with the public and the more time I spend with the public and observe the public (I’m a card-carrying people-watcher) you know what the one glaring thing I notice is missing? Maybe you’ve noticed it too.

Love.

This is a dark, self-centered, hope-void, world we live in.

Think about it. If Christians really loved one another, I mean lived love, oozed loved, shined like little love-lights everywhere they went, don’t you think the world would notice? Don’t you think they’d sit up and say, “Hey, there’s something different with those people and I want whatever it is they have.”

If we consistently loved we could change our world.

Love brings forth mercy and understanding, patience, forgiveness, kindness, selflessness. All things this world could use a little more of. All things that would stick out like a sore thumb.

It’s all about love. It always has been.

Here’s a challenge: practice love wherever you go. I’m talking some 1960’s hippies Make Love Not War thing. I’m talking genuine selfless love. The kind that puts others ahead of ourselves. The kind that’s quick to forgive and slow to condemn. I’m talking the kind that says, “I love you because I was loved when I was so undeserving.” Be intentional about it. Think of others first. Check your temper. Choose your words carefully.

I promise you this, if you show love wherever you go you will stand out, you will shine like a star, you will make a difference. That’s guaranteed.

Hey, if you want a little pep talk, read 1 John. It’s all about love. Here’s a few verses to whet your appetite.

This is the message you’ve heard from the beginning, you should love one another.

Let us not love with words or tongue but with actions and in truth.

Let us love one another, for love comes from God.

This is love: not that we loved God but that He loved us and sent His son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins.

    Hi Mike -Thanks for a great post. I think people are so rushed these days that the small courtesies are often left behind. Kindness, a thoughtful deed, really looking at a person takes extra time. How sad if time management means eliminating a caring word. Blessings,Susan 🙂
