Make Love Your Aim
I read a story today that really touched my heart . . . in fact I found tears rolling down my cheeks as imagined a grandfather experiencing what was probably the darkest day of his life . . . and then the light of love penetrated it to bring him some relief.
You can read about the story here: Hero Pilot
Reading this story reminded me of the darkness there is no our world today. Many people are confronting despair, evil and hopelessness every day. But you and I have the light of Christ living in us . . . and we’re not to keep that light under the bushel basket, but instead let it shine so others can see!
The pilot that extended his compassion for this grandfather didn’t know him. And he even was willing to risk some pretty severe consequences by acting in love instead of following policy. But it was the right thing to do . . . and he allowed love to reign in his heart and bring a ray of light to a very dark circumstance.
Let’s love someone today who doesn’t expect it. Not because of anything they’ve done but because of what Christ has done in us. Let’s make love our aim today . . . and tomorrow . . . and the next day . . . and so often that it becomes our way of life.
God is love and oh He is so needed in our world today. He’s put His love inside of us. Let’s love on purpose! To be the light of Christ in this world so that others can see and want the Source of that light in their own lives.
