1 John 4:19—We love because he first loved us.
Your love or anger touches other persons. When you show anger toward others, anger ripples out across the hearts of others and out into the world. However, when you show love toward others, the emotion of love, so full of light and goodness, also ripples out across the hearts of others. Love ripples out across the universe and into the very heart of God. Every hour we have a choice about who we are and what we do. Every hour we have a choice of showing others love. Love brings joy to God, to others, and to you. Love changes the world because love is God and God is love. Every moment you need to choose to love. Every moment you need to choose to send out the substance of God. We must send out love because Christ loved us while we were yet sinners. An astounding truth is this…you can choose. You can choose to send out God. You can choose to give God away to others and to the universe. God wants you to share Himself. God wants you to give away all He is. Send out the substance of God. Send out God and He will come back to you many times over. We send out the substance of God not because we want something back but because God loved us before we first loved Him.
