Many have heard the adage, “No one cares how much you know until they know how much you care.” The more you care, the more people will listen. Augustine, in the fifth century, described love this way: “It has the hands to help others. It has the feet to hasten to the poor and needy. It has eyes to see misery and want. It has the ears to hear the sighs and sorrows of men. That is what love looks like.” Christians who grow in love, look more and more like Jesus. And when we show Christ’s love, it gives us the opportunity to tell about Christ’s love.

Jesus, thank You for loving me when I was a sinner far away from You. Enable me to see people who need You. Help me see other like You see them. Amen.
