Love, Love, Love

There is a lot of evil, injustice, catastrophe, and heartache that I cannot do anything to fix. All of it weighs heavy on me. I can get depressed and anxious because of it.

The Christian life is summed up in one word: Love. More specifically, to love God and love the people around you. Thinking of this brings in all my thoughts and allows me to focus. This focus allows me to empathize with people. This focus allows one person to be enough – one person to be kind to, to feed, to help, to share the gospel with. No one can possibly help everyone that needs it each day. That’s not even my job!
