We live in a world of comparison and competition, yet God made us all different. So often we can’t see the beauty within us, yet others see it clearly. We need to call out those things we see in each other and to share, bless, and help transform their perspectives so that they are not just seeing what others see, but they begin to see themselves as God sees them.
So I think it’s time for a revolution. It’s time for a love movement! From books to songs to TV and movies, it’s time we awakened the world to life’s most important subject: love. The Love Boat may have sailed away a long time ago, but to God, because His very nature is love, it’s time to once again get on board and sail into His ocean of affection. I know, that last sentence was a bit flowery, maybe even corny, but I like it.
As we begin this journey together, I want to say that I am not the expert on what it means to love. Jesus is. I am, like you, on my own journey to discover what it means to love as He loves. Looking at the state our world is in, I believe it’s time to fill the airways with the reality of the power of love. It’s time for a national conversation on the benefits of loving one another in real and practical ways— at home, at work, with family, friends, and even strangers. It’s time for a movement based on living lives of intentional affection. It’s time to love well.
