“Love intentionally, extravagantly, unconditionally. The broken world waits in darkness for the light that is you“.– L.R. Knost
I have just returned from three weeks of visiting my far-flung family. My brief time with them reinforces my belief that we need to show love improvidently, freely, and fervently while we have the opportunity.
With family, those we love the most, for some reason, it’s easy to get bogged down in the petty emotions. Don’t.
Don’t be offended by an imagined (or even a real) slight. Don’t be meek, afraid to love too much or too openly. Don’t be an ascetic, hoarding your love for some imagined time in the future when love will be more convenient.
Give those you love all of your love today. Do it now.
Then do it all over again tomorrow too.
“A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another.” – John 13:34
