True Love

During this “month of love” it is easy to become consumed with planning that perfect, special date or lavishing gifts on family but this “story” showed me what true love is. How Jesus loved. Jesus did not just love his family and friends. He did not just give to people he liked and were similar to him. Jesus touched the lepers, ate with tax collectors and befriended Gentiles.

Our friends Kristian and Katy are perhaps the most “Jesus like” people I know. They live in New York City and work for non-profits yet they give more away in terms of possessions and time than anybody I know. They constantly had people living with them in their apartment – for various reasons like they were looking for an apartment. They lead small groups, serve at Apostles and many other places. They are humble, sweet and purp0seful in their lives.

It made me cry. It challenged me to do more – right here, everyday, in the burbs.

    I have to admit I opened this this morning and was going to wait till this afternoon to read it, but I started reading it and couldn’t stop! I always wonder what people just need when they try to stop you downtown, but I never take the time to stop!

    I READ THIS A FEW DAYS AGO AND IT WAS A REAL WAKE-UP CALL. I’M JUST LIKE A LOT OF OTHER PEOPLE, AFRAID TO STOP BUT I THOUGHT OF WHAT JESUS SAID “IF YOU DO IT UNTO ONE OF THESE, YE HAVE DONE IT UNTO ME”. AND THAT IS WHAT IT MEANS TO LOVE THE UNLOVABLE.
