Loving Family

I heard a beautiful talk from a Godly mentor lady yesterday and it has been sticking in my mind. God really wants us to show love to our families first and foremost and others as an extension. This is sometimes difficult because a lot of togetherness can bring out our differences, but that is where the love part comes in. We are born into a family for a reason. We marry for a reason. We have children for a reason. And rather than some enormous task to perform, I cannot help but believe that reason is love. As such we have a mandate and responsibility and deep desire to love these people as well ands be loved by them. God designs us all on purpose and with a plan and He is love and made us with love. That us His fingerprint in us. So when we focus on loving them, we are worshipping God and serving and focusing on others than ourselves. Isn’t that extraordinary? I love that idea. Work on loving here and now. Love in every way you can. When you run out, refuel with prayer and Bible reading and meditation, the love source of God. World changing concept right there.
