Love One Another

Pin It Now!
Ahhh, the beauty of finding an inspiring word collage on Pinterest. There are so many great words and phrases in this photo.

My favorite of them all comes at the end... Love One Another.

I think it's so easy to get caught up in everything we expect ourselves to accomplish, to get distracted by all of our own selfish needs and desires, and to put ourselves above the other important people in our lives.

We are all culprits. It happens every day.

It happens when I take the last parking spot, right before someone else.
It happens when I cancel plans because I'm 'too busy.'
It happens when I forget to be thankful for the food and home I'm provided with.

The hard thing is, it happens without us really being aware of it. It is in our nature to look out for ourselves—to be self-protective and self-absorbed.

What would happen if we took a step back and realized that LIFE is more than us? It is more than success or failures. It is more than waking up alone.

Take a step back today and love and acknowledge the people in your life. Appreciate all that they do for you, and give something to them in return. If we're going to change the way people treat each other, it has to start with the individual.

"Whatever you do, work heartily as for the LORD and not for men."
Colossians 3:23
