Steven and I attend a couple's Bible study on Wednesday nights and last nights got me thinking...
about loving others
and being kind.
I'm not sure why it is such a struggle for us-- humans --to simply love another human being.
To just be considerate...
We learn that infants and small children are egocentric.
They don't possess the capabilities to think of another's existence as separate from their own.
To acknowledge that others have needs, desires, and feelings.
We as adults have that capability, yet we choose not to utilize it.
And that's sad.
Really, really sad.
I know that I am not exempt from this behavior.
I practice it daily. Whether conscious or not.
And I think it's safe to say that you do too.
Oftentimes, the best way to love,
to be considerate, thoughtful, and kind,
is by serving another.
So who can you serve today?
And how can you serve him/her?
"Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God..."
1 John 4:7a
