God is love...

"...for God is love."
1 John 4:8

We've heard this all of our lives, haven't we? On Pray-as-You-Go they asked an excellent question, "How might God's love be revealed through you on this day?" Wow, that. You see, it isn't our love we spread around the world at all.  It's God's love revealed through us. The love comes from God, because God first loved us (v. 10). God's love flows through us and out to others only if we are open channels of love.  Knowing that it isn't really our love to begin with makes us shudder at being selfish with it. God only asks that we be open conduits of love, sharing what we have been bountifully given. As I sat there, pondering this earlier, I mentally went through my calendar for today, thinking of how God wants to love each person I am to see. I have a full day of opportunities to love God's people! Instead of dragging myself around this winter Tuesday, I want each encounter with others to be an opportunity to share God's love.  Sort of puts a spring in our step, doesn't it?  Let's do it! Love, heidi
