Practicing Love

What helps you to love others?

Well, that changes from day to day and person to person. Generally though it's the knowledge that nothing bad is likely to come of it, and that love is always a good thing. And the faith that if I love enough people, then they will love more people, and the world will be a better place for it, even if it's in a small, little way.

Trying to forget about my own needs - for a minute or two - helps. It's hard but I do manage to love other, though not as i would wish.

Try thinking about the second commandment, that is what I do... Love your neighbor as yourself. Like April, I think that if you love more people, more people will obviously feel that love and want to spread it around.

I've found that when I'm thinking of someone I DO love, walking through the supermarket, even, people walking towards me smile and say hello.

And then, there's the knowledge of Grace. God loves me because God loves me. I can't earn or deserve it. When I remember that, I'm more loving to other people, and accepting of any of their tiny flaws, which always, otherwise, are glaring faults.
