Breaking Bread for 1.30.20

Scripture

Watch what God does, and then 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

Reflection

We must be God’s reflection in every aspect of our lives. God doesn’t just love one type of person, He loves all people. He loves those who love Him, those who don’t know Him, and even those who say they don’t believe in Him. God is love.

We must learn to love all people regardless of how they look, how they behave, how they pray, if they pray, and whether or not they believe in God, another god, or multiple gods.

We must love all people regardless of the color of their skin, where they live, or how much money they make. We must learn to love passionately, intentionally, and deeply. We must learn to love without expecting anything in return. You can love afar if you can’t love near. Just love.

Jesus loved and loves us regardless if we followed (and still follow) him or not. We must give our all like Jesus. You don’t have to agree with or align with a person to love them. You may not like them, but you can still love them.

God created them just like He created you. You’re just on different paths, having different experiences, and struggling in different ways. Can you fathom that concept? Try it.

Prayer

Father, I want to learn how to love like You, and live the life You expect of me. Touch my heart Lord. Redirect me when I stray. In Your name I pray. Amen.

Love,

Natasha
