Act like you are in love

                                                                                  "Do not waste time bothering whether you LOVE
your neighbor; act as if you did. As soon as we do this we find one of the great secrets. When you are behaving as if you loved someone, you will presently come to love him." - C.S. Lewis 

Our generation is obsessed with 'feelings' - when we don't feel something, then we think that it is not real. However real Love can never be based on feelings. History reveals that millions of believers died for their faith under massive persecution - did they 'feel' in love with God in the moments before they died? Probably not! Yet, it was their genuine LOVE for God that irked the pagans and their persecutors.

Read C.S. Lewis' quote again and allow it to inspire us to LOVE with sincerity. We have an immense capacity to love - we may even surprise ourselves.

Living in Grace
