Spread the Love!

This week a dear friend and spiritual mentor, Bro. John Pangle, went home to be with the Lord.  Many people will miss him here on earth, including Chad and I!  John loved God, but he also loved people.  Everything he did reflected that.  He spent most of his time each day encouraging people, praying with or for them, and just taking the time to listen.  He never made you feel he was too busy for you.  To put it simply: Bro. John knew how to spread God's love.

Think about it, what is the most important thing you could be doing with your life?  Would it be to strive for success in order to make a name for yourself?  Would it be to make a certain amount of money in order to feel that you have "arrived"?  In my opinion, loving God and sharing His love with others would be the most important mission! 

Sometimes we can get so caught up in our busy-ness and stress, that we find ourselves not making time to show others love.  I want to encourage you today to take time to spread God's love.  You may never know how your one simple act of love can be the answer to someone's  prayer!

I hope you have a wonderful weekend.  Don't forget to share God's love with others!

Jesus replied: "Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.  This is the first and greatest commandment.  And the second is like it: "Love your neighbor as yourself.  Matthew 22:37-39 (NLT)
