Love...

So love...how do you show others love? I have a daughter who is loving on her daddy this week, and it's the sweetest thing. She bought a box of "cow tails" from Costco because she knows he likes them. She has been putting the "cow tails" in places her father will look...his closet...next to his tooth brush...his pillow. It's so loving. (Her brothers are trying to find them before Eric. I think, they would like to be on her good side though!) We all show love in a variety of ways. Showing love is an important contribution in life. God tells us to love others. If we truly are loving others, we won't break any of the ten commandments. Setting up the commandments were more about love than a list of "don'ts". Generally, we tend to look at what we shouldn't do, but God says in Romans 13 if we love others, we will follow the guidelines He has set-up.

"For the commandments against adultery and murder and stealing and coveting-and any other commandment-are all summed up in this one commandment: 'Love your neighbor as yourself.' Love does no wrong to anyone, so love satisfies all of God's requirements." So maybe we should all buy some candy to hide, or we should help someone in need. Maybe it's just a kind word. Right it on your calendar this week...today I will text a friend and say I prayed for them. Whenever we love others, we take a step on God's path for us. Love on someone this week!
