Knowing our "why" will guide our "how". In the church, God is our "why", so connecting daily with God reveals "how" we can use our gifts to love others.
Consider this. Our faith community teaches us to love. We then love in the different contexts of our lives in the church and community. An artist may reveal our hidden longings. An accountant will inspire us to be wise stewards of our treasures so that we can share them with others. Scientists and farmers encourage sustainable environmental practices so that all may have life. Our diversity of gifts will ensure a variety of ways to love and accept all people.
- What daily practices connect you with God?
- How is God leading you to be a carrier of love?
- I wonder? Is there "something more" you or your congregation can do to love?
- How can the church equip you to be God's love in the world?
