John 13:34 “A new command give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another (The Holy Bible, New International Version)

My husband was preaching on being serious about God. During it he made the statement, “Any activity that doesn’t produce love is wasted.” We tend to get so tied up in business we get lost in the tide. So much of what we do is done from habit or self-indulgence. . We need to slow down and ask ourselves why we are doing the things we are doing. Is there any value in the task at hand? Is it for someone’s benefit? Scripture tells us whatever we do in word or in deed we are to do in the name of the Lord. We cannot and dare not do anything in the name of our Lord if it is not done in love. This brings to mind a very good booklet I read many years ago that had a great impact on my life. It is called “Practicing the Presence” by Brother Laurence. It is now a free e-book and I highly recommend it. It seems we, as busy human beings, need continuous reminders of why we are here and what we are about. Thank you, Richard, for reminding me.
