Love is found in our actions…love is found in our behaviors…love exists in our attitude…love is shown by a willingness to put the needs of others before our own. Life is filled with thoughts and emotions, questions and decisions. We can become overwhelmed when we get sucked into the swirl of news, headlines and information, etc. When the busyness becomes too much and we need to step off the carousel of craziness…we can ask ourselves, what can I do to show love to another person? When we decide we want to be different than what the world is telling us we “should” be and we want to live with Christ at the center of our lives…then the actions and behaviors that will show our internal change are actions and behaviors of love. Let’s be thankful for the love Christ showed us, by saving us and let’s take that love into our daily life. I pray we all have the wisdom and courage to live a life filled with actions of love. Amen.
“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails…”
1 Corinthians 13: 4-8
