Be imitators of God, therefore, as dearly loved children and live a life of love, just as Christ loved us and gave Himself up for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.
Thought of the Day
It is pretty hard to watch the news and read the papers today and not get the feeling that there is a whole lot of hatred out there in the world around us. Too much hatred. I have a small poster in my office with the following quote from the Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr.
“Hatred and bitterness can never cure the disease of fear; only love can do that. Hatred paralyzes life, love releases it. Hatred confuses life. Love harmonizes it. Hatred darkens life, love illuminates it.”
We are called to live a life of love. Never forget it begins with you.
Lord, Comfort those who need Your love the very most. Amen.
