LOVE

December 22, 2013

I was in the parking lot of at a department store and overheard an argument between a mother and a daughter. In my opinion, the daughter did not ask for anything unreasonable. The daughter accused the mother of doing anything and everything for her newly selected husband but turned her back to her.

In my opinion, a person is born into a family and a spouse is chosen from a poll of strangers. I know, all family is not close; but it’s Christmas. Can’t we forget our differences during the holidays? If a person has wronged you in the past, can’t you forget and forgive?  What if God did not forgive? What if God treated us like we treat others? What if God bless others while neglecting us?

We should have “joy” because our Savior is born. Could we live at peace within ourselves if we never had the opportunity to make amends? God loves us so much that He looks beyond our faults and He still loves us while we are doing wrong? I would hate for a family member to leave this world and I didn’t do everything possible to show love to that person. Love is an action verb. Love is deeper than a four letter word. Love is demonstrated through actions. God proved that in John 3:16.

On this Christmas, open your heart to giving. The more you give, the more He gives to you. What I am trying to say; when a family member leaves this earth, make sure your heart is clear and you won’t have any regrets. Don’t let anything separate a family. Let’s us put aside any differences we have and cleave to one another. Let my love show through actions and not just words. When I am resting in my grave, there’s nothing to be said. Give flowers while a person can still see, smell and enjoy them. Do what you can for a person today, because tomorrow is not promised. Don’t let the sun go down on your wrath. Love is one of the greatest attributes of God.

 For in death there is no remembrance of thee: in the grave who shall give thee thanks? (Psalms 6:5)

 Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil. (1 Corinthians 13:5).

But if ye bite and devour one another, take heed that ye be not consumed one of another. (Galatians 5:13)

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. (Galatians 5:22-23)
