Save a Life
Love is nothing, if it's not given. We've said this before, right? It's important, though. If you say you love people, because it's your philosophy of life or your religion, but you don't actually do anything for the people around you then your love has no value. Jesus said that if you see a hungry person, without clothes, and you tell him that you care and you'll pray for him, but you don't give him food or clothing, then you don't really love him.
We start today. We need to reach out to people. It may be someone at work that no one talks to or someone at school that gets laughed at. Maybe it's someone who physically needs something and can't afford it. It starts with little things like eye contact and a few kind words. You'd be amazed what you can do with words. They may be the only good thing someone hears all day. Maybe just a hug or not being scared to touch someone's hand who no one else will touch.
Don't be afraid how someone will react. "Perfect love casts out all fear." Take a risk and care about someone in a relevant way. Do it today, just once. Love fiercely. Save a life.
