I would like to think I am a people person. I love seeing people happy. I love seeing people succeed in their goals. I enjoy seeing all their happy pictures on FB. Yet, deep down I know that I don’t love people enough. You see I love people while I am comfortable and as long as it doesn’t require a lot of effort.
As a Christian, we have been taught that we are to love others. We are to care for others because they are a creation of our Heavenly Father. We should be concerned about their well-being and we should strive to help them in any way that we possibly can. This requires us to give of ourselves through our time, energy and even financially. Yet, sometimes I think we forget what this truly means.
As we learn more about Paul we will discover what this really means. Paul was tortured, beaten, and ridiculed by many. Still, he continued to show his compassion for people. Even ones he had never met. Of course, we know that this same type of love was demonstrated by Jesus for all of us.
For I want you to know how great a struggle I have for you and for those at Laodicea and for all who have not seen me face to face, Colossians 2:1
As I read these passages I could not help but think that for myself I don’t often reach majorly out of my comfort zone to show love to others the way that I really should. Often times I simply approach others guarded and reserved. Scared to share or give all of me out of fear.
In a world that is ever changing we all, including myself, need to be willing to love like Paul. Speaking Biblical truths to those we come in contact with, praying daily for Christians who are struggling daily and seeking out ways that we can continue to show God’s love to all people. When we all begin to do this we will begin to see changes in our homes, in our communities, in our towns, and in our world.
Until Next Time Just Keep Soaring 4 Him,
