It’s really all about love.
Life that is.
It comes down to the people we love.
How do you show your ‘loved ones’ your love?
Recently I took my husband a cup of coffee.
He usually gets up before me. OK, he always gets up before me. Usually he’s had a cup or two before my feet ever hit the floor. So when I discovered the Keurig hadn’t been turned on, I made coffee for both of us and took it into his office to say Good Morning.
It was a small thing, but his smile said it mattered.
The small things add up over time.
It’s true with spouses, kids, friends, and neighbors.
Jesus said love was the main thing.
Love others as you love yourself. Galatians 5:14
And NO, Jesus wasn’t advocating that we should love ourselves.
He was plainly saying that life is a special opportunity to show love to others.
That’s the example He gave us.
As He walked through the village, or went into a house, He looked for the one with a need.
A father with a sick daughter, a blind man among the crowd, or a solitary woman at a well in the heat of the day.
He opened His eyes to see others.
That’s what He wants to teach us to do too.
To look, to listen, to love.
