One Word

Yep. Just one.

That’s all we need.

Know what it is?

I’ll give you a hint. It’s both a noun and a verb. It’s a BE, and it’s a DO.

Give up?

It’s LOVE (I know. You already guessed it. Blah blah blah you’re very smart).

So…that’s it. That’s everything.

Jesus took the ENTIRETY of the Old Testament, hundreds of thousands of thoughts and words and insights and actions, and summed all of it up in ONE WORD (isn’t He an absolute GENIUS?).

And not just HAVE love or GIVE love, but BE love.


WITH love. THROUGH love. BECAUSE OF love.

NOT with Warm Fuzzy. NOT through romance. NOT because hormones tell you to.

BUT, with pain. Through sorrow. Because He loved us first.

And as a verb? LOVE God. LOVE people (that covers EVERYbody).

Like Nike says, Just Do It.

Purposefully put THEIR needs, desires, hopes, dreams, schedules, pain, sorrow, whining, issues, drama, BEFORE your own (and yes, you have some of all of those things. So do I).

That’s the best advice I can give myself or anyone.
