God’s unfailingly good to us, but the stresses of everyday life, along with the constant bombardment of bad news, can dull our senses to His lovingkindness.
However, Scripture reminds us that God has already blessed us and has made His face shine on us (Psalms 67:1), and in turn, we can pass our blessings onto others – think of it as paying forward.
By seeking out the lonely, the hurting, and the broken, we’re shining a bit of God’s glorious love into their lives.
What does this look like? It could be inviting the lonely widow to your home for a coffee, sending someone a worship song that’s encouraged you in the past, or posting a hopeful message on social media (instead of simply perpetuating negative news threads).
This month we’re looking at A Love That’s Evident, and we invite you to join us as we look into ways we can bring God’s love into the lives of others.
Got a story to share about how God has been teaching you to love, relate to, and engage the broken world around us? We’d love to hear it!
Here are some subthemes to get you started:
- Practising acts of justice
- Growing in our love for mercy
- Walking humbly with the Lord
- Making God’s ways known on earth
