Love enters the world of its own accord, for its own reasons. And love is always accompanied by light. That is, love always illuminates the space it occupies. Watch this week for love to enlighten your world. Look to see what new understanding you have in the presence of love.
God promises love to us and shares love with us. In Jeremiah 31, God says, "I have loved you with an everlasting love; therefore I have continued my faithfulness to you."
How do you respond to God's great love for us in your day to day choices? How do you share this love with others?
I can think of special times in my life when this was very evident. The day I was confirmed. The day I graduated from high school and then graduated from college. The day I was installed in worship in my staff position. The day I was married. The day my son was born. The day when Will was baptized. When I look back at pictures, I can see the way that love is evident through the joy and glow that those moments exude. You can see it in the expressions of family members' faces.
Where do you notice love illuminating spaces in your life?
Prayer for Today
Loving God, you have demonstrated your love for us throughout our lives. Open our eyes to see the love and light that you bring into our lives. Help us to share it with those we meet. In Christ's Name, Amen.
