An action that truly puts the other first.
Reference: Sing to him, sing praise to him; tell of all his wonderful acts. (Psalm 105:2 NIV)
Explore: Jubilee Project, in partnership with Pastor Francis Chan, have created a beautiful video that has gone viral. It is a celebration of love, not just as a one off feeling but an action that truly puts the other first.
Take a couple of minutes to experience this love: http://jubileeproject.org/
Application: There are so many beautiful expressions of love in our world. When a man dedicates his life to his wife, when a sister shares her meal with her brother, when a dog stays by his owners side at all times.
Love is something we can often take for granted but we must always keep working towards it. Why? Because it is the ultimate expression of God.
Love is when heaven and earth collide. Love is when we see into the eyes of Christ.
The Bible is filled with stories of God’s great love and full of psalms that sing of it. If it’s so important to Him, may it consume our every waking hour.
Prayer: Lord, love sounds nice but when it comes time to put it into action it can be quite challenging. May I lead with love in my day today. Amen.
What will be your first act of love today?
