1 Corinthians 13:1-7
I was driving to work this morning and I had a thought about Love in Action.
What does Love in Action look like?
What does Love in Action look like to you?
I went to visit a church on Sunday and the message was about the scripture 1 Corinthians 13:1-7.
The message was about loving people and how it is easy to love people who are like minded, who we get along with.
The Pastor spoke about seeing people with the eyes of Jesus.
To be honest that can be challenging, but I have been thinking about it today. What if we saw someone, looked past their challenging ways and saw their potential, saw what they could become?
What if we chose to journey with that person, what if we saw their value when they couldn’t even see their value.
What if we took the time to listen to them, to encourage them to just be there for them?
What would that look like, how would that person feel?
Who know what a difference you could make to that one person.
I know that God is the God of second chances and I have definitely been given a second chance.
I would probably not be where I am today if it hadn’t been for friends who had journeyed with me. Who saw me stuck in an illness but still chose to look beyond that, they chose to invest in a person who was lost, who was wounded and who thought that she had no value.
I would also not be here if it was not for a Doctor who saw me and not a girl with and eating disorder. He saw someone with value, with purpose and with potential. He chose to invest and show Love in Action. He embraced the whole meaning of Love in Action.
We may not see the end result but we can be part of a team that invests, that shows someone Love in Action.
Is there someone that comes to your mind that you can show Love in Action?
Pray for wisdom, pray for guidance and ask God who he would like you to show Love in Action too. It could be one random act of kindness that changes someone’s day.
We may never know how we have impacted on someone’s lives, but they will remember.
You can make a difference.
