BEING THERE FOR PEOPLE YOU LOVE
Happy Valentine's Day! Today is a celebration and outpouring of love. Many people send roses and gourmet chocolate in heart shaped boxes. We all love to be loved! It's a feeling and emotion that is comforting, soothing, and gratifying. Never underestimate the power of love. It can make you do and say things that you never imagined. Recently, I heard a pastor say that “the riches in life are not found in money or possessions, but in relationships!” Perhaps to those who idolize their bank accounts, real estate holdings, and stocks/bonds, a statement of this magnitude would hit them like a ton of bricks. Their emphasis is in the wrong place. Truly, it is our relationship with God foremost and our loved ones that brings us riches! Being there for people in their time of need is one of the greatest gifts that you can give. Don’t ignore them when you can help them. They may not know of your resources, but God does! When you give of your time and resources, you will receive back more than you gave. Be blessed in your relationships! Be blessed in your life!
