It is my feeling that the one ingredient that is missing in building unity, whether it is in a family, church, or community is the willingness to take the “time” to love. To look straight into the eyes of another human being and radiate back to them a feeling of value.
Many go through life feeling neglected, not measuring up because they spend their days seeking out someone to whom they feel that they have something in common with – similar in belief and action. They never recognize the true source of our commonality – the fact that we are all a child of God – we are a family.
Nothing is more important to God then His children. That is what we must focus on….asking to be filled with the love that God has for each and everyone. To ask specifically, to see another through God’s eyes and to be filled with the love the He has for them. Then and only then are we able to get past the artificial outer shell that blocks each of us from one another.
Today’s affirmation: “I will reach out with a greater amount of love”.
