I recently watched an interview with Bob Goff, author of Love Does and Everybody Always. He asked this question that really stuck with me, "How extravagant are you going to be with your love to people that you don't know?"
He went on to share the text from Matthew 25:35-36, that may be familiar to you,
I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.
Jesus invites us to be aware of how we are sharing love with the least of these. This invitation from Jesus is a challenging one in a day and time where we are increasingly more safety aware and skeptical of those in need. I believe that we live at a time when it is even more important for us to share the love of Christ in an extravagant way.
As you go through this day, consider how you can push yourself to be more extravagant with sharing love today. Be open to how God might be opening a door or inviting you into a conversation with someone.
