It's Valentine's Day—when (most of) the world jointly recognizes the concept of love.
Maybe you're a little cynical.
Or maybe you're just disregarding the day.
Whether you're welcoming this holiday with open arms or wishing it would just pass, I think it would be a mistake to forgo the opportunity to take a second look at this day of love.
What if we changed our focus—off of ourselves and onto Christ's love?
What if we let go of our worries and expectations for a day and took a long look at what's going on around us?
Every single day, we interact with people who need to see the love of God. Whether Christians or not, the people the Lord has placed in your life need to be encouraged, to see His love in action.
Still need motivation? Still a little skeptical of the degree to which you should show love to not only people you already love, but also those who are less than enjoyable? We have been called to be the hands and feet of Jesus to everyone. Not just some people. Not just sometimes. Always.
So, let's get practical. What are some ways to show Christ's love any day—every day?
Well, that's a start. What else is on your list? How can you be loving to others? It's not just advice—it's God's instruction.
"You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the great and first commandment. And the second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself."
Now, go live it!
|Great post! Love is much broader than the romantic love that's marketed at Valentine's Day.|
