How to Know When You Get it Right

I believe that at the end of a day most people would like to think that they were loving toward others during that day. However, if we are using a water downed definition of the word love to measure our actions against, we will only be deceiving ourselves. 

Jesus Christ is not Your Role Model

Christ was more than a model, for He is the source of the very love that we need to show others.  If we are to love others, we have to do more than try to imitate His behavior, we have to receive Him and His greatest act of love for us.

A Summer in Contrast

As you read this another hurricane is heading toward the U.S. When Irma hits, I don’t know what you will hear in the reports. You might hear stories of neighbors looking out for their neighbors or you might hear stories of people taking advantage of others. For me, it doesn’t matter what I hear that others are doing for I am committed to loving first. I hope you will do the same.

Rallying Points

Summer is a great time to get together with people. Schedules are more relaxed, kids are out of school, it stays light much later. Think about what you could provide a group of people at work, your neighbors, or your family that would be the rallying point. Toss it out there and see what happens.
