Observe how Christ loved us. His love was not cautious but extravagant. Love like that.
Watch what God does, and then you do it, like children who learn proper behavior from their parents. Mostly what God does is love you. Keep company with him and learn a life of love. Observe how Christ loved us. His love was not cautious but extravagant. He didn’t love in order to get something from us but to give everything of himself to us. Love like that. - Ephesians 5:1-2 MSG
Your friendly neighborhood hope peddler here.
Bringing you hope by the bucket full.
This scripture, these words - overflowing with hope. If God can love us and He does, like crazy. Love us sinners, us know-it-alls, us Nosy Rosies, us Debbie Downers, us meanies. Then surely we can learn from Him. We can hope - confidently expect - that He knows we are capable of this kind of love. After all we are created in His image. Surely we can be extravagant, give more than we take. Surely we CAN love others better than we have. Hope says we can!
I'm willing to to pour myself into trying. Will you join me? Will you throw caution to the wind and LOVE in the face all things not lovable? It's simple but most definitely not easy. Together we can. Together we can set the temperature, together we can be the thermostat. Together we can change the world. Together with our love.
Ok friends, on three - One, Two, Three -LOVE!
Putting our money where our mouth is♥ more love for you
