Do not neglect to do good and to share what you have,
for such sacrifices are pleasing to God (Heb. 13:16).
Both men and women are willing to go to great lengths for true Love. . . even to die for Love(an ancient concept). Think about this: God is Love. My girlfriend and I found true Love (God) and married fifty-six years ago. Each morning, as I pray, I think about the line, “Give us this day our daily bread,” and mentally change this to Give me this day my daily Love, praying that my wife of many, many years and I enjoy another day of God’s Love on this Earth. She is the Eve to my Adam.
For our lives, we have both been a force for God’s Love. My dear love has helped create a child day care center when she was in her twenties to a table to help feed the needy when she was in her seventies. Her life has been a gift of God’s Love. My serving God is less visible, I bring God’s healing Love to all whom I meet in a spiritual way and a prayerful way that blesses everyone’s life. This is God’s Love that is free to us all. People have laughed at me and criticized me, but I know and those I help know that God is Love.
I use the term God and Love interchangeably; I look around and see that modern, Western religion has confused this whole god thing. Maybe life would be easier if we did not have to contend with this whole god thing. To some, their god favors only whites, to others their god favors only Christians, or only favors Americans. God loves all His children.
One thing I am absolutely sure of; God wants our heart! Our heart contains our soul which is God’s property and God link to humanity. If we think with our heart, we love. This is what God wants. When we think with love, we think with beauty, and kindness, care for all of God’s creation. When we love one person, we love all people, otherwise we do not love. When we lift one person from suffering, we lift all people from suffering.
When we understand this, when we accept that we love all people, we are a force for God’s Love.
