Love is the answer.

I’m slowly learning that “love” is the answer.  It doesn’t matter what the question is.  Have a problem at home?  Respond with love.  Have a problem at work?  Respond with love.  Have a problem at church (hey, it happens!) respond with love.

Now, I’m not talking about the romantic love.  I’m talking about loving people the way God loves us.  In John 13:34, God says, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must
love one another.”

Sometimes I get so mad at my teenage son, that I forget to “love” him.  I’ve noticed that the more I respond in love, the better he is, the better I am, and the better our relationship is.  Sure, he still has consequences to his actions, but I try to remove the anger I feel and replace it with love.    I’ll admit, it’s not always easy to do, but when you see how effective it is, how much peace it brings you, you’ll want to love on everybody!
