Love

LENT

Better to eat vegetables with people you love than to eat the finest meat where there is hate. ~ Proverbs 15:17 (GNT)

Paul writes: If I speak with human eloquence and angelic ecstasy but don’t love, I’m nothing but the creaking of a rusty gate. ~ 1 Corinthians 13:1 (MSG)

KEY IDEA:
Love is the active ingredient that makes life work.
PRAYER:
Lord, you loved us so much that you sent your only Son to die for us. That's a lot of love. But I've heard this so often that it does not seem like such a big deal. Help me to recover the sense of wonder and the faith to extend your love to others -- particularly to those who don't get along with me. I'm going to love as Jesus loves -- and that is a big deal. Amen.
