Today is the second Sunday of Advent, the day we think of the promise of God: Love.
There is nothing like love. Love puts a protective spirit in new parents that is immediate and strong. Love causes men and women to abandon selfishness as each gives themself to the other. Love brings tears and laughter and sorrow and fear. Love cannot be bought but it can be given. Love is free but can cost you much. Love is found in the smallest of deeds. Love can be shared but cannot be taken.
The love of God is why we can love each other. “For God so loved the world that He gave us His only begotten son, that whosoever believes in Him will have everlasting life.” (John 3:16)
God’s love is immeasurable, incredible, and infectious. Love God and you will find that you can love others and love yourself.
May the love of God be in you and through you. As we gather with others during this Advent season, may we share His love.
