Good morning.


Sometimes when the night skies are clear, a full moon illuminates the landscape, making everything clearly visible. However bright the scene may be, the moon doesn’t emit light but simply reflects it. 


For followers of Christ, loving others is the same. Jesus said to His followers: “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. (John 13:34) Before we can love as Jesus does, we must first receive His love for us. Only then are we able to mirror it to those around us and point them to the One who cares more deeply and abundantly than they could ever imagine.


The Lord empowers us to be "reflectors" of His love. "By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”  (John 13:35)


We are then able to put Paul's words into practice: "walk in the way of love, just as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God."  (Ephesians 5:2) And when we do, we carry out something grand and glorious, and are blessed as a result. 


 Let's go into the day and reflect His love.


Blessings.

Mike and Daphne

Good morning. David writing in Psalm 43:5 asks, "Why, my soul, are you downcast? Why so disturbed within me?" He then gives us good advice, "Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior
