We want to challenge our friends, families, coworkers, and kids of all ages to make this summer the SUMMER OF LOVE. Not the lustful kind of love but LOVE like Jesus. God’s kind of love is directed towards others, not self. We tend to look inward at self and not out. If we take a real look out we will find a hurting and needy world. From young to old, we all need and desire acceptance and LOVE! What would this summer look like if we all chose to love like Paul wrote in his letter to the Corinthians. The message version version says LOVE cares more for others than self. LOVE doesn’t want what others have. LOVE doesn’t strut-doesn’t have a swelled head. LOVE isn’t always “me first.” LOVE doesn’t fly off the handle and LOVE doesn’t keep score of the sins of others. LOVE trusts God ALWAYS. Love ALWAYS looks for the best and never looks back but keeps on going to the end.
What if we find a need and meet it?
Hold a door, carry out groceries or just give a smile and a hello. What about leaving cool behind and doing what is right even if it means looking different. Love comes in so many shapes and sizes. Some of us need a hug or a sweet word of encouragement. Others may need more, like your undivided time and attention. Love is an action! Let’s put it to work this summer.
Will you LOVE like this and let your life be the proof? We are selling these wrist bands 2 for $3. One to keep and one to give away. We will have them with us at the Mighty Mom food drive at Sam’s in Denham Springs on May 4 from 10-6. We will have them in our purses and cars all the time, if you want some let us know.
