Day 153- Richmond, Virginia: Our Heart
One of the best parts of life are giving love and receiving love from those around us who matter most, including God. These two aspects of life either originate from within our own hearts or from the heart of another person who has made a conscious decision to share a piece of their heart with us. It is this act of kindness that makes us so like God. God gives us the gift of love that comes from the most sacred part of our bodies, from deep within our core, for us to openly share with everyone that we encounter in this world.
The core elements that we posses that allow us to give so freely to others comes from a place deep within our soul, that is filled with an insurmountable amount of hope, faith, and love through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior. For without love, who are we? Love is a two way street that begins with the person who chooses to live his or her life in the most meaningful way possible with God at the center of their lives, and ends with the graciousness of the person receiving the blessing. The act of giving love is probably the most important thing we will ever do in our lives, due to the nature of what it takes to give someone a piece of us.
There are so many risks involved with loving someone, but those risks are worth it when you see a smile on the face of someone else who may need that love in the worst way imaginable. The world is filled with pain and anguish all around us. That is why it is so easy to understand why God loves us so much, as He never turns His back on us, no matter the infraction or sin we that we commit.
God is always here with us with an amount of love that we should not keep for ourselves. Rather our love should be shared with everyone in the world so that they also may be able to experience the joy that comes from being a follower of Christ with us. In 1 John we are taught that “Love Comes from God”: “Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God; and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God. The one who does not love does not know God, for God is love”. Amen.
