Day 13: Love Does

We love because he first loved us.  1 John 4:19 (NIV)


This week the cookie making has been on at our house! At one point we looked across our counter tops and laughed at the amount of ingredients everywhere. And let me tell you, baking with two six-year old boys is CRAZY! Boys are messy by nature and it is confirmed that at one point there was more flour on the counter and the floor then in the baking bowls!

We finished some of the baking and started packing a few goodie baskets with our homemade treasures. As we packed them up Carter asked, “Mommy, why do we give the goodies to others?” I paused and then replied, “because love does honey…it gives.” 

We were given the greatest gift in Jesus and we get to love others because he first loved us. It brings such joy to our hearts when we give, when we put love into action and become the hands and feet of Jesus. When we take the time to love others well it unlocks our hearts and the Father’s love spills over.
