PAUSE & Read
”Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth.” – 1 John 3:18
PAUSE & Reflect
We often think of love as a certain kind of feeling. Lent invites us to practice loving. God passionately loves us – not for us to save it all up in our hearts but to give it away to those around us. We can begin right now, right where we are, with the people nearest us
PAUSE & Practice
Ask God’s direction in taking small steps of love today. Begin with your closest neighbors or those with whom you live and then include each person who crosses your path today. Consciously fill the day with the light of loving deeds, however small, wherever you go.
