I John 4:7-8 Beloved, let us love one another; for love is of God; and everyone that loveth is born of God and knoweth God. He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.
This past Monday was my birthday. To be honest, it's not always my favorite day. The trouble is that each year I pray that by the next one God will have answered my most heartfelt prayer. When He hasn't it makes me sad.
This year I was wished "Happy Birthday" in every way you can think of. By phone, text, email, "snail mail", facebook, twitter and instagram. I was given flowers, a cupcake and even sang to at the walking track. I was wished "Happy Birthday" by family, church family, co-workers, "old" friends and new. That night I thought "What would it be like if we treated each other as if it were our birthday everyday?" If everyday we showed each other the love we do on our birthday, just think how different this world would be!!
Now, I am not always good at showing love to others and I'm sure I'm not alone. But love is of God!! Let's show love to others even if it's not their birthday.
This devotion was written from the heart of Beth Reed. I would love to hear from you.
