The past few weeks God has given me a wonderful opportunity. This opportunity is seeing how unloved most adults feel. That personally breaks my heart. It is no wonder the suicide rate is so high these days. It saddens me because we as Christians are designed to love on our fellow brothers and sisters. The bible even states, “You are your brother’s keeper”.
If you were at the gym and you saw your brother lifting weights and needed a spotter you wouldn’t think twice–you would run to his aid. But is this what we are doing when it comes to matters of life and death?
What are you doing to show others you love them? That can be as small as asking how their day went. So are you doing this??
We all have an inherent desire to be loved and to love others. We first have to look at where do we get our source to fuel this love. Do we even know what we are seeking when we call it love? Do we keep going back to people to try to earn their love in order to fill our own desires? Are we numbing our feelings with alcohol or drugs in order to feel less empty?
God created us with the sole purpose to love us (His creation) and in turn we would love Him as well as our fellow brothers and sisters. That is why we are called a family. The church is always referred to as the body. When one of our brothers or sisters hurt, we all hurt. When they are healed we feel that too.
