Two simple things

Paul is a wonderfully encouraging correspondent. In his first letter to the Thessalonians, he pens these words:

May the Lord make your love increase and overflow for each other and for everyone else, just as ours does for you. 1 Thessalonians 3:12 NIV

This little verse crept into my brain this week, while the Holy Spirit worked in my heart. Trying to nap with my tiny ones, I couldn’t rest as my mind wrestled with this concept. Paul says we should let our love increase and overflow. And he doesn’t say until when. This then, I told my dear friends, is what it looks like to me.

First:

2015-04-09 20.28.50

And then:2015-04-09 20.30.59What a terrific challenge. Find new ways to show effervescent, extravagant love to your beloveds. Seek extraordinary ways to show Jesus to your community. And then go out and love on strangers like they too belong to you, as they belong to the Father.
