Daily Inspiration, 31 Mar 17

“sometimes it is necessary
to reteach a thing its loveliness,
to put a hand on its brow
of the flower
and retell it in words and in touch
it is lovely
until it flowers again from within”
Galway Kinnell

“Most people need love and acceptance a lot more than they need advice.”
Bob Goff

“Always there is something worth saying about glory and gratitude.”
Mary Oliver

“We love because he first loved us.”
1 John 4:19

My Prayer today is insight.   Insight to see Christ’s image in one another.   Care enough to pay attention and re-state the good and beauty that we see, and to give solace, compassion and encouragement where it is needed.  Advice can run off each other like water falling against a wall.   Moral superiority will garner no followers, but love that comes from the heart changes hearts and minds.  This is the love that Jesus had for us, and gave so generously, and it’s that love that we are called to give as his followers.  Let us love others because of the love he first had for us, because it His love that reaffirms our worth, time and time again.
