love is all we need

Today’s readings: Ezekiel 23:1-49, Hebrews 10:18-39, Psalm 109:1-31, Proverbs 27:13

One of the kindest things I’ve read in the Bible is in today’s NT reading in Hebrews. Hebrews 10:24 says “Let us think of ways to motivate one another to acts of love and good works.”

Think about what he is saying. Let’s work together, and come up with ways that we can cause our brothers and sisters to show love to other people, and to do good works. That’s one step beyond loving other people… that’s helping OTHER people to love people. Pretty amazing.

What can you do today to cause people you know to love others, and to do good? Sometimes just a kind word does this. When you hear someone say something nice, it makes you want to ‘pay it forward’. Speaking of paying it forward… you’ve heard of paying for people’s meals or drinks when you’re in line at the drive thru, right? That’s another way… random acts of kindness promote more random acts of kindness. And makes the world a better place.

Thanks, God, for inspiring us to not only love people, but help THEM love people.

Instead of paying it forward, this would be praying it forward.....
