To Love Much

To Love Much

Have you noticed that everyone seems to be so busy these days?  There never seems to be enough time to get everything done.

I have noticed this in my own life.  It is even more prevalent with working full time, home schooling, and trying to manage my home.  It is a constant task to try to keep my priorities in check.

However, with working at the hospital, there is one thing which frequently brings me back to reality, causing me to rethink my priorities.  It is being faced with death.

Recently, one of my favorite patients went home to be with the Lord.  Bonnie was an amazing woman, of whom no one could speak an unkind word.  When I read I John 3:14, where it says that we know we’ve passed from death to life because we love each other, I can’t help but think of her.  She was definitely a lady who loved much.

After she passed away, it got me to thinking about my own life and how I would like to be remembered after I am gone.  I also want to be known as someone who loved much.  It has challenged me to reach out to others and to love much.

Lord, help me to have a heart that reflects Your love to others.
