Loving People

by Berni Dymet 

Rom. 12:9-10 Let love be genuine; hate what is evil, hold fast to what is good; love one another with mutual affection; outdo one another in showing honor.

"Love" is an easy thing to say, but it can be much harder to do. We all want to be loved, but mostly; we're a bit lazy when it comes to living love.

Living love? What does that look like?

Let's say it's cold and you have a nice warm coat. And you meet someone on the street who - well - they clearly can't afford a coat. And - and so you give them yours.

Or - ah - someone you know, they're struggling to make their next car payment. And instead of saying - well, I'll pray for you friend - no, this time, you write the check to meet the payment.

Or there's this guy - who by the way has never been that very nice to you, you never really liked them - he's completely alone. So you invite him home for dinner.

Or…HANG ON A MINUTE. THAT'S ALL A BIT OVER THE TOP ISN'T IT? Give away the coat. Pay the car loan.  Invite That person over for dinner?

I mean what a load of rubbish. Who came up with that?
