We read this morning from 1 John. Isn't it amazing that no matter how many times you read the scripture the Lord reveals something new to you? Verses 17-18 say "If anyone has material possessions and sees his brother in need but has not pity on him, how can the love of God be in Him?.... let us not love with words or tongue but with actions and in truth" I so often become engrossed in my own life and fail to lift others up to Him. Loving others through selfless acts shows them the love of Christ and let His light shine through us. I long for my children to be keepers of the faith... to grow in Him every day. It is important to keep our children's hearts and show through our example Christ's love. I pray He helps me to be a better witness through acts of kindness.
On another note... our cat had kittens about 5:30 in the morning. The girls are absolutely enthralled with these new little delights. I have to admit, they are darling.
