The Power of Love

The people we encounter each day are there in our life for a reason. God puts them in our way so that we can love, not hate; show compassion, not judgement.

As God’s beloved children, we can love our friends and enemies because He has given us the capacity to love with His compassionate love. The greatest tragedy in life is when we start building barriers against others because of our prejudices, fears and insecurities.

Today, let us not underestimate the power of love - a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, the smallest act of caring - to the people around us, especially to those whom we find it hard to love.

Question for reflection:
How can I choose to show love today?
