Several months ago I read a book by Debbie Macomber. It was titled "One Perfect Word". Debbie every year chooses a special word for her focus. It can be anything. The plan is to study the word and make it what you search for on a daily basis.
I was inspired and intrigued by this concept. After much thought the word "Love" came to mind. It was more like it chose me than I chose it. My mother had given me Joyce Meyer's devotional "Love Out Loud" for Christmas. It is about loving God, others and yourself.
One of my favorite chapters in the Bible is 1 Corinthians 13 where Paul describes love so well...love is patient, kind, it does not envy, nor boast or is it proud, it does not dishonor others, it is not selfish, not easily angered, keeps no record of wrongs. It does not delight in evil but rejoices in the truth. It always trusts, hopes and always perseveres. Love never fails.
Wouldn't our world be a perfect place if real love was practiced daily? Just think there would be no fear. Children would go to school safely. Hate would be gone as well as corruption. We would treat the stranger on the road as a friend. Hunger would be a thing of the past because all would share. Greed, lies, stealing all gone. It would be just the way God planned. I am more than ready for this place - how about you? Wish me well as I seek to love more in the coming year.
Thank you for letting me share my perfect word with you. May God Bless You!
