I enjoy my birdhouses on the fence. I made them last year from scrap lumber Mr D had in his shed. He did the sawing and I did the painting!
Something cute to look at while I'm rocking on the porch.
I was shopping at Mardel's Christian Book store recently and found some great books on their 'everything's a dollar' table. I've never been one to turn away from a bargain so I loaded up! One of the books I purchased was Let Hope In by Pete Wilson. I've been scanning through the pages and these paragraph's caught my attention....
A Clear Command
Life is one giant lesson in love. It's not about how much we get (acquisition), how much we do (accomplishment), or much we earn (achievement). It's not about all the other things we're told life's about. God put us on this earth to learn to love. We were created to receive love and to give love.
Jesus says the two most important things in life are:
1. Learn to love God with all your heart.
2. Learn to love everybody else.
He says if you get that, you've got life.
If you don't get that,
you just wasted your life.
Love is what life's about.
Love is the name of the game.
Matthew 22:36-40 (ESV)
“Teacher, which is the great commandment in the Law?” And he said to him, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the great and first commandment. And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. On these two commandments depend all the Law and the Prophets.”
Until Next Time
