Easy to become jaded
and sarcastic –
guarding and protecting self.
Easy to build walls to hide behind
rather than bridges to connect.
Easy to criticize, to assume the worst
and tear down.
Easy to jump to a conclusion
and react without understanding.
Easy to pretend.
Love, though, reaches out,
opening oneself to become vulnerable
Love shares. Love gives.
Love builds and restores.
Love seeks the good, the right, the pure.
In the end,
John 13:34 A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another.
I Corinthians 3:13 And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.
Today, let my thoughts be centered on the love You have given, and let my words and actions speak love.
