My inner voice objects: “But I don’t love people.”
Fortunately, the art ministry leader gave an example of what love means. “When Samantha works at the computer and schedules our event calendar, she’s loving people.”
I think it’s the culture’s portrayal of love as lace ‘n’ roses in fuzzy focus and gooey emotions that I resist. I need to remind myself that love is shown by my actions, not necessarily by emotions.
If the actions I do to help set people free count as love, then I’m in.
I’ve learned that when I do something that shows love to people, I do get a fuzzy, gooey feeling.
The act of love precedes feeling love.
Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing.
1 Thess. 5:11
