My wonderful cousin, Sharla shared a quote with my mom the other day and I have really been thinking about it a lot...
"We are not here to earn God's love, we are here to spend it!"
Such a simple thought. God's love is unconditional. Nothing we could do would ever change that and we will never need to win him over. We are here simply to let His love show through us.
So easily said and yet it can be hard to do... Life can get in the way and resentment or pride can really cause hardening of our hearts towards others. I really want to make this my new goal in life. I just want to try very hard to have love for everyone, no matter what our differences are, regardless of whether or not they love me. If I fail miserably one day I can just try harder the next day.Wouldn't the world be a much better place if everyone tried their best to spend God's love?
Thank you for the beautiful, inspiring words Sharla:)
