The generous will themselves be blessed, for they share their food with the poor.

Do Everything in Love

Verse of the Day:  1 Corinthians 16:14         

Let all you do be done in love.   

Faith in Action: Because of God’s love for us and our love for Him, everything we do should be done with love. Everything we do, our work, our charity, our life, all of it is in vain if it’s done without the love of God. Ask God to help you do everything with genuine love for others in your heart.

Love the Unlovable

Obedience and Service

Love One Another

By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.
