While reading Heaven is For Real, they have a chapter called ‘It’s the People’. This convicted me of what really matters in life. Is it the stuff I have accumulated or the people who I have loved? The Bible tells us, “above all, love deeply”, 1 Peter 4:8. Love is our greatest example of God. Love is so powerful and can affect people’s lives in astounding ways. So don’t forget about the ones who matter in your life. or the ones you just met, the acquaintances, the strangers you walk past everyday; don’t forget to take the extra step to remind someone how special they are and how much they are loved. Love with an open heart and open arms.
“We love because He first loved us.” 1 John 4:19
