Out of the Overflow ...


May the Lord make your love increase and overflow for each other and for everyone else, just as our does for you.
- 1 Thessalonians 3:12

This morning as I was praying for someone I prayed that their love for their family would be an overflow of their love for God. After these words rolled off of my tongue I realized that is exactly what we all need. This world, our families, the hurting, they do not need forced love done out of Christian duty. Let's not pretend like people do not know when we aren't being authentic. People need authentic agape love that overflows from the love of God in our lives. This overflow only comes from spending time soaking in God's presence and experiencing his love. The thing I love most about overflows is that it spills over from it's intended recipient and onto whatever is near. When we overflow with the love of God everyone who comes in contact with us will get some! We often hear the overflow spoken about concerning finances and things but what about spiritual wealth. The one who shares the love of God is the one who is spiritually wealthy. Princess, you were created not only to be loved but to give love. You will become like who you hang out with. God is love, He is the very essence and exact epitome of love; hang out with Him and you will overflow with a love that you and this world so desperately need. Let's overflow in LOVE!
