Mother Teresa said, "It's not what you do so much that matters, but how much love you put into it."
The Bible says, "Do all your work in love" (1 Corinthians 16:14).
Seems like an easy enough concept, doesn’t it? But then, I think of the many times I’m feeling unloving. I can so easily lose touch with what God would have my life mean. Although I want to always live with Christ as my center, allowing no other priority to become higher,I sometimes fail that goal. It hurts me when the love fades. I’m no good at pretending.
Thankfully, God is gracious and merciful. He shows me, either in his Word, or by the actions or words of another person, or by so many other ways, how to turn back. His love fills me once again. With a gentle nudge, Jesus is clearly there to lead me back onto the narrow road - The path less traveled, but well weathered just the same. My feet feel sweet familiarity as I resume my walk with Him. Love buds, then blossoms as I let Him show me how to live, step by step. God’s love lived through me is so good. I am truly blessed!
