God is right here, right now

"Beloved, if God so loved us, we also must love one another. No one has ever seen God. Yet, if we love one another, God remains in us and his love is brought to perfection in us."
1 John 4:7

The love we see manifest in the world is actually the love of God. When people do good things, that is God's love. When people forgive and welcome each other back, that is God's love. When strangers comfort each other, that is God's love. When people share what they have with those who have less, that is God's love. When people rally around and help each other build a barn or clean up from a storm or put on a funeral luncheon, that is God's love. God isn't so mysterious and far away if we humans act with love in our daily doings. The love we muster up and share is really God in action in our world. God isn't far away...God is right here! And we can see God if we just look for the good. Love, heidi
