The Whole Point

“The whole point of what we’re urging is simply love —love uncontaminated by self-interest and counterfeit faith, a life open to God.”  1 Timothy‬ ‭1‬:‭5 MSG

The whole point is to love others and live your life open to God.

To simply love and simply be loved.

To love God and love people.

It is simple but certainly not easy.

Self-interest complicates it.

Self-protection kicks in.

Stress gives excuses.

A moment of simple love breaks through it all.

A moment of simple kindness lifts the eyes and encourages the heart.

God brings those moments to us so that we can give those moments to others.

May the love of God interrupt your day with a small blessing, or a gesture of kindness as well as an opportunity to pass it on.
