Flickering Ember – Daily Challenges
Webster’s dictionary defines love as “A strong affection for another arising out of kinship or personal ties.”
Love: sometimes the word alone can be difficult for some of us to relate with.
It’s not always easy for some of us to convey our inner most feelings and thoughts to others.
Hopefully, in time we have learned that it’s not always the words that matter the most, as it is the way we show how we care. (And even that can be difficult at times for some of us.)
Flickering Ember – What Else Can We Do?
Don’t let the flame go out!
Love comes in all different forms…
The love a husband and wife share for another.
The love we have for our parents, the love our parents have for us.
The love for our children and our children’s love for us.
The way we love our furry friends. (And not so furry friends).
In this day of hustle and bustle, it’s easy to forget to let someone know you love them.
We don’t always have to say the words, but once in awhile a hug will do.
Flickering Ember – The Bible Says
1 Peter 4:8
And above all things have fervent love for one another, for love will cover a multitude of sins.
Fervent means “exhibiting or marked by great intensity of felling” (Webster’s Dictionary)
Owe no one anything except to love one another, for he who loves another has fulfilled the law.
Now the purpose of the commandment is love from a pure heart, from a good conscience, and from sincere faith.
