December 23, 2010 LINGER LONGER TO SHOW LOVE

John 13:34-35 “So now I am giving you a new commandment: Love each other. Just as I have loved you, you should love each other. Your love for one another will prove to the world that you are my disciples.”

Some things are not what they appear to be on the surface. At first glance, what may appear to be a wreck on the side of the road off in the distance could be a roadblock. At first glance, what may appear to be someone who is laughing on the outside, may be someone who is crying on the inside. At first glance, what may appear to be an angry person, may be a person in need. We need to look beyond the surface so we can plainly see what the reality is. We can’t be moving so fast that we fail to see the opportunities around us.

If appear to be too busy on the surface, it may seem like we do not care. We need to take time for others. The world is busy and things need to be done; however, we should pick out what is important and urgent and get those things done first. If it is a friend or a stranger in need, we may want to rethink what we are doing and shift our priorities to help them. We need to linger longer so that we can be more aware of what others need and determine how we can help. We need to show our love.
