1 John 3:11 NASB "For this is the message which you have heard from the beginning, that we are to love one another;"It coughed, sputtered, then quit! Today's verse shares what we have heard from the beginning, that we are to love one another! Seems so simple a verse and yet we find ourselves struggling with the simple thing of love! All it really needed was some TLC - tender loving care! The motor was old, dirty and parts were falling off, so no wonder it didn't run properly. After a few hours of cleaning it up, replacing broken parts, it started right up. I wonder if some of the people we encounter in life don't need a little TLC. The world has them broken, misused, and unappreciated but we have been called by God from the beginning to love one another and that goes especially for those with a broken spirit, who are elderly, who are in need. Seriously, how much does it take to love on those in need... not as long as you think but the question is... are we willing to love them as Christ loves us?! peace, tom
