SHOW THE LOVE, THE AGAPE LOVE OF GOD BY GIVING OF YOURSELF TO SOMEONE ELSE! John 3:16 says; For God so loved the world that He gave…. Let us follow this example of real love today. Let us go beyond our usual lip service and do something nice for someone. Give something that matters; give a smile and mean it; give a compliment and mean it; offer to help someone who may be struggling with something; buy lunch or breakfast for your co-worker whether they may need it or not; pick up the phone and call someone you miss; go visit someone in the hospital or even in jail. Whatever you can give, just do it with all your heart and with agape!
Remember, giving opens the door to be blessed. Luke 6:38 says; Give and it shall be given unto you, good measures, pressed down, shaken together and running over…
Don’t give to be seen. Don’t give expecting the person to do the same for you in return. Don’t give what you wouldn’t want. Don’t give what isn’t yours to give.
Let the spirit of genuine love operate in you today, GIVE!
