God Is Love
"God is love." - 1 John 4:16
"Love one another as I have loved you." - John 15:12
Christ gave His love when it was not deserved to people who did not deserve it. That's the principle to practice! Love is the one ingredient of which our world never tires and of which there is never an over abundance. The world will never outgrow its need for love. God created us in His own image, which means we were created to function on the fuel of love. The world cries out for genuine love, love that heals, love that unites, love that forgives, love that encourages.
Love is essential to our emotional, physical, mental, and social well-being. There's a quote I like that says, "Our lives are shaped by those who love us and by those who refuse to love us." If you give love away, it will be renewed each day and become stronger and purer.
Last quote I want to leave you with - "Love in your heart is not put there to stay. Love is not love until you give it away."
Note to remember: We enrich the world by what we give.
