Love Others

The surest way to find God, if you are seeking the Eternal One, is to go out and love others: to get to know them, to embrace them, to accept them, to care for them, to be patient with them, and to serve them. Remember: everyone you meet is created in God's image, and therefore when you love them you love the image of God.

I know, it's hard to do this. Some people out there are obnoxious and not nice. But, some of the time, their misbehavior is their way of shouting, "Will somebody please notice me? Will somebody please love me?" If we could look past their behaviors, see their hurt, and love the image of God in them, both they and you would experience God.

Why don't you at least try it? Look for God in the people you meet today.
