Do these things connect easily in our daily life? We read the words of Jesus and others in the bible and we look around at the world we live in and it really is difficult to see it in action. Or is it? Actions that reflect God’s love are happening all the time, all around the world every day…the real questions are where are you looking to see God’s love in action and what are you doing in your circle of influence in the world to show God’s love to others? Just because the news and social media streams are obsessed with sin, evil, darkness and hate does not mean that is all that is going on in the world…it just means we are looking in the wrong places for Him. Every single person of all backgrounds and expereicnes have a responsibility to show the love of God to others in some way. If more people had a goal to show kindness, goodness and love to just one other person each day…it would make such a big difference in the world. May the God’s love flow through you today. Amen.
“My dear brothers and sisters, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry, for one’s anger does not bring about the righteous life that God desires. Therefore, get rid of all moral filth and the evil that is so prevalent and humbly accept the word planted in you, which can save you.
Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says.”
