Love Starts Small

Mother Teresa“When you know how much God is in love with you then you can only live your life radiating that love. I always say that love starts at home: family first, and then your own town or city. It is easy to love people who are far away but it is not always so easy to love those who live with us or right next to us. I do not agree with the big way of doing things—love needs to start with an individual. To get to love a person, you must contact that person, become close. Everyone needs love. All must know that they’re wanted and that they are important to God.” ~ Mother Teresa, A Simple Path

    For Christians our family is in Christ. Being loving and kind is important to God. In fact he commanded it.

  2. So true. Loving others is at the core of being a Christian but yet we take it for granted many times.
