Divine love transcends culture, race, gender, and age. There is no one anywhere, who does not respond to the kind of love that Jesus tried to show the world: a warm smile, a gentle touch, a helpful hand, something to eat or drink, a word of comfort, a simple prayer. All of these display the holy and godly love of the heart.
Too often we communicate with others using our lips and hands. We say how we feel, or we stand by as someone struggles. We fail to let our heart speak. We do not offer understanding, kindness, support, and encouragement.
Our days are a journey of becoming more Christ-like, to love as He loved, and to live as He lived. We cannot learn how to be compassionate toward others all at once. Love develops slowly, and deliberately. Over time, we begin to realize the potential of what we can do through God.
We discover we can love in greater ways when we are guided by the heart, for that is where God speaks to us each day.
