Love, love, love!
“Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no commandment greater than these.” Mark 12:30–31
The verses are from Jesus. He was explaining the two most important commandments. These two, basically summarize the other ten from the Old Testament, because if you love God with all your heart, you will not want another God. If you love your neighbor, you will not kill him/her, etc.
Yesterday, I was listening a preacher talking about love outrageous. She encouraged the woman to love each other and make something to make the life of others special. It can cost nothing or be expansive, can be a gift, a word, a card etc. Basically, she invited the ladies to spread love in different ways.
I thought that it is amazing! After all, God uses people to bless people and how great it is to be a blessing in God`s hand. Because of that, I want to challenge with two things:
1. Love God outrageous!
I know, I know! It seems crazy! But I encourage you to show Him how you love Him! Be creative!
2. Love People outrageous!
Make somebody`s day really special. Think in many ways that you can bring joy to others.
BTW, it is also a way to show God that you love Him, because God loooooves people!
