I was going through my father’s papers the other day. I had to keep some of them, but most of them were old records about his life that were no longer of value, so I shredded them. While going through that process I thought about a man’s life, and the summation of it all. Is the end result a bag of shredded documents? I hope not.
Our lives, our legacies should live on after we are said and done. The love we showed others should still be echoing off the walls of their hearts. The kind deeds we expressed should still be bringing smiles to the ones who received them. Love, is the only thing that will endure to the end. Knowing this, it becomes paramount that we learn how to love unconditionally. The only way to do that is to fall in love with the One who is love, and that is God.
“The person who refuses to love doesn’t know the first thing about God, because God is love–so you can’t know him if you don’t love.” (1Jo 4:8 MSG)
