Before I made the Live to Love Prayer a daily habit in my morning devotions, my days were agenda-driven. I approached each day with a “get-my-to-do-list-done” mentality. Consequently, I missed many people that God put in my path. For instance, I didn’t notice, much less care and pray for, the people in the park where we walk most days. I was there to get my two miles in so I could get to the next thing. That was true for trips to the store, barber, church, or restaurant.

Let’s now consider the last of four new “love thoughts” that I present in my book, Live to Love. The focus of this thought is less on us and more on the impact of Jesus’ kind of love on the people around us.

It’s the Christmas season, so of course, our focus turns to the coming of Jesus to earth. We celebrate that glorious day when Jesus, the Son of God, the Christ, the Lord, the Savior of the world entered into our dark, fallen, condemned, useless existence. What value did He see in us? God’s description of mankind isn’t a pretty picture.
It’s such an incredible privilege to live each day to love with Jesus. Having our minds renewed to think like Jesus thinks, frees us to get into the flow of His love for those He puts in our lives.
Jesus is the answer to everything that Satan, the world, and even we ourselves throw at us. We can’t afford to take our eyes off of Jesus.

Wouldn’t it be devastating for a person to waste his or her entire life?! It would be like someone expending great energy to climb a ladder, only to find when they got to the top that it was up against the wrong wall.
Naturally, people unify with each other because they share similarities. Because people live for themselves, it is reasonable for them to connect with people who are like them.
