Seeing Love

Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves. Romans 12:10

If love stared you in the face, would you see it?

How bout if it looked a different way?

Can you see love in the way it arrives at your doorstep?

If it’s dressed unexpectedly, can you even see it to appreciate it’s warmth and tenderness?

How do you see love?

Words of affirmation?

Hugs or a squeeze of the hand?

Time – uninterrupted or hanging out with others?

Helpful acts of kindness which lift your load?

Unexpected flowers that grace your table?

It matters.

How you see love.

But don’t let that grab you and cloud your vision.

I’m serious.

How do you give love?

Same way you see it?

We tend to see love ONLY when it mirrors the way we give it away.

Pick up some more mirrors.

So you can see all the ways love is spoken to your heart.

Because love is shared in multiple different ways.

If you’re not seeing the love, look for it in a different form.

Because I’m guessing it’s there.

In a big way.

Go find it and be blessed.

Then scoop up the love and give it right back from your precious little heart.

  1. Just a couple of weeks ago, I was having a down day. I was on my way to go grocery shopping, and looked over, and saw a little boy about 7 years old standing in his front yard. He was waving, and smiling from ear to ear to me. I saw the “Love of God” in his face. Just an act of kindness is all we need sometimes to change our day!
