Make The World A Better Place

I know that we have talked about love quite a bit, but God has put it in His Word over and over and over again. It starts in the Old Testament and continues through into the New Testament. God really wants us to understand and live this. It is the core of our Christian beliefs, it is what we stand for and what will separate us from everyone else.

We have talked about what it means to love, and how to show our brothers and sisters love when they are hurtful. But, now let's talk about taking a proactive stand with love. Instead of waiting for us to love someone, we need to do at least one selfless act of love each day.

Our family at the dinner table will talk about our day. It is amazing the conversations you will have with each other and your children when you all sit down for dinner at the same time, with the television off. Anyway, during our time we will tell each other one act of love that we did for someone else. It really helps you reflect on your day. It is a time for encouraging each other and helping each other. Yes, even the "Head of the Table" can use some helpful hints.

Today I would encourage you to see if you commit an act of selfless love. At the end of the day, if you can not think of one act, maybe you need a reminder halfway through the day to be on the lookout for an opportunity.

2 John 1:5-6
"And now, dear lady, I am not writing you a new command but one we have had from the beginning. I ask that we love one another. And this is love: that we walk in obedience to his commands. As you have heard from the beginning, his command is that you walk in love."

Insight Into the Scriptures
2 John was written the same time as 1 John. It is written to "The chosen lady and her children." It is a short personal letter from John to his friend in a church that he might of been overseeing.
