Please enjoy this post from a lovely young woman of God. I asked if I could share her work as it was so beautiful and insightful and had to be shared. Get a cuppa and be blessed by Gamu.
In a dark broken world, you encounter many broken people. As a Christian, as a human being I believe what God really wants from us is to show compassion and love to those who need it most, essentially that means all, because the reality is, we are all broken in our own shape and form. Our cracks and scars may not look the same, but we all have the battle wounds of being a part of this broken world.
So what is our purpose? To love God and love people. Because you can’t have one without the other, Jesus made that explicitly clear. Well, I know I am no Marvel character, and neither does Jesus expect us to be. But each moment is an opportunity to show compassion and love to someone. Each moment is an opportunity to give hope to someone who has lost their way, to turn on a small dim light in a very dark place. And as more and more of us do this one person at a time, the world becomes a less dark place, a less broken place, one person at a time. Be a force of love and justice in your sphere of influence. Turn the lights on!!!!
