Found myself praying for some much needed wisdom today. Felt blessed that my prayer was answered so quickly, so I thought I’d share the answer I needed to hear.
Use LOVE. LOVE is not a default position. LOVE is not simply something we do because we don’t know what else we can do. LOVE is our Father in Heaven’s greatest tool in dealing with us. Christ made no bones that LOVE is the substance of both the greatest and second greatest commandments. The word LOVE has multiple definitions and connotations, but the most powerful type of LOVE is not simply a feeling, it is an action verb that describes an intangible power. LOVE literally creates entire civilizations, and the absence of it destroys them. LOVE speaks to hearts, not to minds. No teaching, lecturing, or information has any value if there is not LOVE attached to it. Yet, even the smallest piece of knowledge, shared with LOVE, can change the future.
I was also reminded of a quote I heard somewhere that it is not so much that love is blind, but that love has the ability to see something in another person that others have missed.
