be genuine

Here's a quote for you that came from my airplane reading yesterday:

"Stop and think about this:  Would you say that the people who had the greatest and most lasting impact on you were people you felt genuinely loved you and cared for you?" ~ James Merritt

Yes, stop and think about that for a moment.  Who are the people who have most positively had a lasting effect on your life?  I'm guessing it may often be people who have developed a relationship with you and who have a relationship with Jesus Christ. For it is He who loved the world, sacrificed His life for each person and their sins, and who is alive as He sits at the right hand of the Heavenly Father interceding for us.  HE has perfect love which He gives to us and as we have a deepening relationship with our Savior, we can give that very love to others as we genuinely love and care for them through His power and strength.  

"Above all, keep loving one another earnestly, since love covers a multitude of sins." ~ I Peter 4:8

Yup, just my thought of the day which through His strength I may pass on  to whoever crosses my path.

so true. 'We love, because He first loved us."
We are blessed to reflect and pass on a love so true and genuine.
