Share the LOVE …

The other day the kids and I were running errands which means a lot of time in the car. My son M was particularly chatty. Taking full advantage of this I began to ask him questions. Our conversation went up and down and all around {as do most conversations with a four year old}. But we landed on something that for about 3.5 minutes was astounding.

Talking about how we treat other people I loosely quoted the the verse in Luke 6. “Out of the heart, the mouth speaks”. And then added that our actions are very much the same. What is in our hearts will come out in how we treat people. For example, when we say mean things and don’t help others we are being … “Mean, mommy.” We then talked about the flip side of that … love. I was pretty sure our conversation was over when out of the back seat I heard, “It is kind of like Valentines Day and Halloween Day.” I didn’t quite understand so I asked him to explain what he meant. “Well, Halloween day can be scary and sometimes people are mean. But everyone loves Valentine’s Day because it is full of love.” Don’t think I could have said it better myself.

If we claim to follow Christ than everyday is Valentine’s Day or at least something like it. Here is a verse to encourage you.

Romans 12:9, “Don’t just pretend that you love others. Really love them. Hate what is wrong. Stand on the side of the good.”
