There are many worthy causes into which we could invest our resources, generously. But the greatest of them all is loving others… if we love others in the way the Triune God of the Universe loves us.
This November 26, 2018, NASA’s latest robotic lander will arrive on Mars. Even if you are not a fan of space travel, great feats of engineering, or of amazing expressions of creativity, you’d still admit sending a robot to another planet is kind of cool.
You and I would also agree on how deep the human thirst for acquiring knowledge and exploring really is.
Exploration is just one of many worthy causes we could dedicate our life to. As a specie, we have been exploring for a long while, always pushing further and further the location of Meta Incognita.
And just like exploration, we humans have a number of other adventures worthy of our life’s resources.
But none of them compare to the adventure that loving others is.
If we love them in the way the True Living God loves us.
I know, that standard is rather high (should we say impossible?), but the truth of the matter is that you are an expert in such a love: you have seen it in action, you know what it is capable of, you know what it taste like, what it looks like. You know it so well there is very little chance you would be cheated by a cheap imitation of it.
Because you know the real thing, then you can…
- Love generously without expecting any response.
- Love in a way that demonstrates, mainly to yourself, that this love is infused with His Beauty.
- Love often, exercising this God-given ability with the purpose of seeing it growing.
What’s stopping you? Go ahead and embark in this the greatest adventure of them all.
What is the biggest obstacle for you to love those around you, in this particular way? How could that obstacle be removed? Pray accordingly.
Remember His grace, Follow Him in humility, Cultivate constantly, All in cultural diversity.
