Your Plus 1 assignment: Find one way to put love into action. (You might pray about it for a few days and see what ideas come to mind!)
FAITH5: Tonight and every night before you head to bed spend some time with those you love and do this faith-building experience together (or, do it alone as a time of before bed devotions, keeping a journal and recording the following as an act of prayer):
|Share… One high and one low from your day.|
Love never gives up.
Love cares more for others than for self.
Love never dies. (1 Corinthians 13:4-8a—The Message)
|Talk… Walk through this passage a couple of phrases each day. How do those phrases challenge you? Inspire you? Where do you see that kind of love in action. As you read through this poem, replace the word “love” with “Jesus.” How does that shape your understanding of Jesus? Love?|
|Pray… for each other.|
|Bless… each other by affirming one thing you like about the other person. Bless each other by making the sign of the cross on each person, saying: The LORD bless you and keep you.|
