What does love look like? Those who have experienced God before us provide snapshots of God's love for us. This love speaks through their words. It speaks through their actions.
As different as their lives and cultures were from ours, God's love remains the same. Love speaks to us on our darkest days and in our brightest hours. Love speaks to us through stories and snapshots. Love speaks to us through actions and words.
Who in your life has helped you to better understand the love that Jesus calls us to, "You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength. The second is this, 'You shall love your neighbor as yourself.' There is no other commandment greater than these." Mark 12:30-31
In Jesus' early days of ministry, he read from the scroll of Isaiah and told the people that God's love was about to bring good news to the poor, freedom to the captives, sight to the blind, relief to the oppressed, and proclaim God's goodness in the year of the Lord.
How does your love for God and your neighbor speak through your actions and words?
