“Love does no harm to a neighbor; therefore love is the fulfillment of the law.”

‭‭Romans‬ ‭13:10‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

I’ve been thinking a lot about love today. Love in all of its forms: the way I love my dog, and the way I love the folks who come out to Bible Study, and the way I love my parents and the way I love movies. 

There are many different ways to love. But ultimately love means wanting the best for the thing you love. Wanting to be with it, wanting to see it succeed, wanting to see it grow, wanting others to experience it and to love it as you do. 

Love leads us in the right direction. Love makes us give of ourselves. Love lead Jesus to eat with those who were unloved, to heal those who were hurting, to teach those who would listen. 

Love lead Jesus to the cross. For you. For me. For that person who you cannot stand, but who is dearly loved by God. 
This Lent, may you know that you are dearly loved by God. May you let that love lead you forward. May you let it change you. May you let it make you more like the One who loved us all enough to lay down His life for us.
