"You will never regret kindness."
It’s true. A kind word, a smile, a cup of coffee, an encouraging text.. simple and unremarkable ways in which to love those around you.
I was reminded that you cannot give away what you do not have. Unless we have received God’s love, then how are we supposed to love others unconditionally, recklessly, sacrificially?
God is love. Whoever lives in love, lives in God. It is important to go back to the source every day, receive his love, thank him for his love, then live out of his love.
Lots to think about today.
We’re working through Ephesians at church. It’s great teaching and can easily be applied to modern day life.
The past two preaches have been on marriage, relationships and have also touched on the role of men and women. I’m genuinely impressed to see a church that is willing to brave potentially controversial topics and give answers based on biblical truth. I don’t agree with everything (i’m still processing) but some really good points raised on how to interpret and understand difficult bits of scripture.
I’m hoping that change isn’t hopeless.
Today at church my Vicar preached on the 3 parables in Luke 15; the lost sheep, the lost coin and the prodigal son. He spoke of the two types of people God is looking for: the fully committed and the lost.
During the prayers I broke down weeping. God showed me a little piece of his heart for my generation, the lost generation.
He longs for them. He is desperate for them. He is searching for them. His heart breaks that they are not with him. He loves them with an unfailing love.
