Love and Kindness

6 12 2017

“I have loved you, my people, with an everlasting love. With unfailing love I have drawn you to myself.  Jeremiah  31:3

With an open heart I can receive the goodness that surrounds me.  The blessings of family, faith and community can shape my days and bring joy.  I am open to each gift from God, the work of my hands, the kindness of a neighbor or the courtesy of an open door from a complete stranger.  It is easy to focus on what’s not right in the world around us.  But if we look closer to what is near us, we can see all is not lost.  God’s love is still present.  It resides in me and in you.  It emanates from our everyday actions.  Our actions help the world to see Jesus’ love more clearly.  We can open our heart to Him and to gift of His people all around us.

Everyday, Ordinary Life

So here’s what I want you to do, God helping you:

DSC04254Take your everyday, ordinary life—your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life—and place it before God as an offering.

Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for him.

Don’t become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God. You’ll be changed from the inside out.

Readily recognize what he wants from you, and quickly respond to it.

Unlike the culture around you, always dragging you down to its level of immaturity, God brings the best out of you, develops well-formed maturity in you.
