LOVE GOD LOVE OTHERS

At the heart of being a disciple of Jesus is loving well. This requires us experiencing connection with God, with others and with ourselves. In the life of Christ, we see someone who practiced loving God and loving others unlike anyone else. Jesus was asked by a religious lead, “Of all the commandments, which is the most important?” (Matthew 22:36) Jesus summarized the entire Bible for us,

Love the Lord your God
with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.
This is the first and greatest commandment.
And the second is like it:
Love your neighbor as yourself.
All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.

Jesus
During this time of change we want to encourage our church to get back to the heart of God through Loving Him and Loving Others. How can I begin to develop a love for God?

LOVE OTHERS


As we think about loving others in this season our suggestion is to keep it SIMPLE:

SERVE - Choose to put others needs first. How can you serve others in your family, neighborhood, city, etc.?
INVEST - with your time, money and skills.
MERCY - Care for those in need and practice forgiveness and reconciliation.
PRAY - Pray with and for people.
LISTEN - Take the time to have conversations where you truly listen to others and seek to understand them.
ENCOURAGE - Bless people through life giving words of truth.

Senior care homes have been under quarantine for months now leaving many seniors without contact with their loved ones. To let them know they are not alone, the Prince George Volunteers for COVID group is asking the community to write letters, draw pictures, etc (be creative!) that will be emailed to participating care homes (they will print them there). Creations can be emailed to alittlekindness20@gmail.com. (Most care homes can only print in black and white so pencil drawing are great!)
