“…For some…unknown reason… we seem to bring out the worst in each other, as opposed to looking for the goodness in each other…”

Image result for caricature of jesus loving usDo you have “anything” at all that “everybody” would want? I’m thinking…. By golly…I do! I’ve always wanted to have something that other people wanted….I just NEVER could quite figure out what it could be…I know, though…I’ve got something in the cooker.  Listen to me on this one.

Recently,  I’ve been able to close-in on some real good ideas. It’s beginning to be exciting.   I’ve been working hard, and steady, trying to develop something that would be in high-demand …not just for the AVERAGE JOE…but EVERYONE. And… I’ve finally figured it out, too, so listen up.

I’m in LOVE! I love my WIFE, I love my children, and my grand-children. I love writing for BrOOKS-of-WISDOM, I loving coming up with new ideas that offer encouragement, hope, and endurance, steadfastness, a sense of commitment … flavored with….humility… and love.  I love my work…yeah…I still work. I agree… all this sounds a bit corny, especially at my age, but seriously.…

Jesus tells us in Matthew 22: 37-40… Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’  This is the first and greatest commandment.  And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’[b] 40 All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”

Why then, should we not think more seriously about that …to spread love, to think more of how we might serve our friends, our neighbors, and co-workers …in a loving way…loving them as we love ourselves. It is because of the …lack of love… that our world is in such a mess.

For some…unknown reason… we seem to bring out the worst in each other, as opposed to looking for the goodness in each other. We seem to do this, not just on a personal level… but nationally, and even… internationally. Remember the recent “national elections.” Not much LOVE going on there… Basically…we are love-failures. We just don’t seem to get it right. So…there you go.

But… regardless of the statistics…we can do something to improve our lot in life. I have love, and everybody wants it…or should. Love is a multiplier. Give some away, and it multiplies….try it. I KNOW, too, that you have love…

Love is the glue that holds us all… together. As we enter the Christmas Season… it is a wonderful opportunity to “share some Christmas Love.

…Blessings…cjlb…12/1/16
