Love Beyond The Surface
I’m somebody who doesn’t like to have a lot of surface conversation. I long to get down to the root of what’s really happening. You know, I share my story and you share yours. Where we talk about the good, the bad, and the ugly in our lives. Not just so we can cry together, but in hopes that we come together.
Often I say you really don’t know anybody until you know their story. What’s really going behind the scenes in their life. What have they been through and what are they going through. We often ask others how are they doing. Most often we don’t take the time to discover what is really going on in someone’s heart and life.
We should always take the time to show we care. How can we pray for one another. After all, prayer is not the least we can do it’s the greatest. Don’t judge that person walking by who might have good reason for their moodiness and stress. Maybe they’ve been abandoned, abused, or just got some very bad news. Maybe they’ve never felt loved or recently lost a very dear loved one. Maybe they need someone like you to take the time to prove you genuinely love someone like them.
“A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another.” (John 13:34)
