“Even after all this time, the sun never says to the earth,
‘You owe me.’
Look what happens with a love like that – it lights the whole world.” - Hafiz
Wisdom from Scripture:
Psalm 63: 1-4
“You, God, are my God, earnestly I seek you; I thirst for you, my whole being longs for you, in a dry and parched land where there is no water. I have seen you in the sanctuary and beheld your power and your glory. Because your love is better than life, my lips will glorify you. I will praise you as long as I live, and in your name, I will lift up my hands.”
1 John 4: 9-13
“This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him. This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins. Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and his love is made complete in us. This is how we know that we live in him and he in us: He has given us of his Spirit.”
Dear Lord, we ask you again, teach us how to love!
Open the eyes of our souls that we may become more aware of your spirit and the love that you have poured out into all of creation. Open our eyes to the people around us and help us to see them in your light.
