I am God’s love in expression.
When I care and share love and attention with someone in need, I am God’s love in expression. Putting aside time and finding ways to give is also about making a heart-to-heart connection with others. I am the eyes that see when there is a need. I am the hands that offer a gentle touch to soothe someone’s pain. I am the companion for someone feeling alone or forgotten. I am an advocate who supports the need for clean air and soil. When I turn I can into I am, the good that I give returns to bless me. This activity of giving and receiving creates a circle of love. With each caring act, each loving word and touch, I am being a messenger of God’s love.
We know love by this, that he laid down his life for us—and we ought to lay down our lives for one another.—1 John 3:16
