Often we are told to ignore, stay away, protect.
Is that showing love?
Sometimes, but not usually.
Reach out. Care. Embrace.
How good and pleasant it is
when God’s people live together in unity!
It is like precious oil poured on the head,
running down on the beard,
running down on Aaron’s beard,
down on the collar of his robe.
It is as if the dew of Hermon
were falling on Mount Zion.
For there the Lord bestows his blessing,
even life forevermore.
Showing love is not about meeting everyone’s needs but continuing to care and be kind. Alanon really helped me see that I am not the Savior – it is Jesus. Sometimes love is surrendering others to Him and walking beside them…even if from a distance.
