We love because he [God] first loved us.
1 John 4:19
We can love others, because God Loved us. Filled with this amazing Love, which was out poured, we spread it to others. We knew the greatness of this Love, and so we wanted to share it. God Loves us unconditionally. I wrote a post about Love before. But know that we are Loved, how can we love others?
Loving others is an action; A verb. It is something we are meant to do. To make sure others feel the satisfaction that we have felt. It is spreading the feeling of being wanted and being taken care of. Sharing the tenderness, by doing simple or complex actions.
Love is given to us; We choose to accept it or reject it. It is passed from two people: God and Our Guardians.God never fails to love. Look in our daily lives, all the wonders and actions he does for us. All because he Loves us. He wants us to come openly into his arms of Love, forgiveness and satisfaction. Our Guardians, the ones whom look after us, and take after us. Making sure we are fed, and ready for life.
Today, the Church celebrates the Feast Day of Saint Monica. Saint Monica, lived a struggled life but still kept her Faith in Christ. She is famous as the Mother of Saint Augustine. She had two other children named Navigius, and Perpetua. She had prayed and cried 17 years for the conversion of Augustine. She also sought the prayers of Bishops and Priests whom at first tried to avoid her because they thought it was a hopeless prayer!
But look at the Love Monica has for Augustine. She only wanted the best for him, and so she did what she could. (Augustine didn't live at home for that long) So she prayer. She had so much Love and Faith, she prayed for 17 years. (A PERFECT example for us all)
So let us love other through our actions. Let us glorify God for Loving us. Loving others in only possible through Loving God!
How are you Loving Others?"But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you"
