I think there’s one thing that I think we can all agree that we all need more of: love.
When we take care of someone who doesn’t deserve it, who can’t repay anything to us, we are doing it to God.
We will never be able to perfectly care for others, do justice, love mercy, or walk humbly, but we can become more and more like him each and every day.
I believe that we can bring clarity to others with the words we say and the way we live.
What would our world look like if we dared to examine our beliefs, experiences, and worldviews so that we understood what we were bringing into a situation?
God is pure, unfiltered, unadulterated Love and we were created to be loved by him and to love him and others in return.
In a world that’s full of conflict and division, yelling and proving others wrong, empathy can be a rare place of safety. And I believe this is what many are longing for.
The antidote to selfishness might not be selflessness, it might actually be self-love that is rooted in Christ, instead of ourselves.
We never know what one strategic act of kindness can do in someone’s life.
It’s so easy to fall back into the rhythm of mere functioning, but God has called us to so much more!
