If there is one thing for which all kind of people yearn for, it is love.  Everyone is born to be loved and to love.  An atmosphere of love repels every work of the devil.  This is what we read in the Bible, “Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes and always perseveres. Love never fails.” (1Corinthians 13:4-8)
 
There was a pastor in a church, who was the embodiment of love. One day, a thief came and stayed with him. The pastor knew that he was a thief. Yet, he loved him and rendered all help to him but he was ungrateful to the pastor. He stole two silver lamp stands from the church and fled. As he was about to sell them, the police suspected him and caught him. They felt that those lamp stands belonged to the church and so they brought him to the pastor. This pastor out of love for the thief, told to them, “It is I who gave them to him” and saved him when they enquired the pastor. The love of the pastor broke the heart of the thief and from that day onwards, he gave up his robbery and became a servant of God. He stayed with the pastor and ministered along with him.
 
Love will cover a multitude of sins. Dearly beloved, Let us be filled with God’s love and live a life that is pleasing to Him because He has said Your love for one another will prove to the world that you are my disciples” (John 13:35). The love that you show to the world has the magnetic pull to bring people to God for God really loves them unconditionally. If there is someone who needs your forgiveness show godly love to them. Forgiveness mirrors the nature of Jesus to people and it releases you from unnecessary pain and guilt.  
Prayer:
Jesus, the fountain of love, fill me with Your divine love. I am  devoid of love but let me be transformed like You. Let my life be such that the divine love poured out by the Holy Spirit will flow through me to my family members and to all the others. Remove all my shortcomings. Strengthen me to show You into this world.  In Jesus’ name I pray, O Father, Amen.
