Earlier today, we had our regular prayer meeting for our small group (called a “household” in our community). Our main theme for the day was LOVE, and it was divine inspiration from Father A. The worship/prayer session before the sharing proper had almost everyone in tears, as God spoke personally to our hearts, each of us different yet united in love.
We were a mixture of single and married men and women, lay and religious. With different backgrounds and personalities. From different countries and cultures. With varying concerns and problems and sins and questions.
Yet united by ONE God. And His perfect LOVE.
What a grand reminder of how “now that You’re near, everything is different, everything’s so different Lord! I know I’m not the same, my life You’ve changed, I wanna be with You, I wanna be with You!” (Now That You’re Near by Hillsong)
As husband and wife, with God’s love and grace, we CAN choose to love unconditionally, despite our spouse’s faults and failures.
As parents, married or single, with God’s love and grace, we CAN be MORE loving and patient and kind and teach our kids to be the same.
As families, with God’s love and grace, we CAN be a force of good change in the world today. Strong Christian families = Happy peaceful societies.
As workers, with God’s love and grace, we CAN do MORE to serve others through our everyday tasks.You don’t have to be a fulltime missionary to do mission. Bless the world through your talents, time and treasure.
Love conquers all people.
Choose to LOVE today. 🙂
