"Sadly, we often fall into the trap of wanting to be right rather than wanting to love well." (Jim Daly) I admit I sometimes fall into that trap. If we win every argument/debate but have not love, we are nothing...we win nothing! Speak the truth in love! (Ephesians 4:15a) Do everything in love! (1 Corinthians 16:14)
I’m so thankful and delighted that all of you faithfully demonstrate what LJ fellowship stands for...Loving J.O.Y. (Jesus. Others. You.). Thanks for putting Christ’s love into action through serving and meeting the international students’ emotional, physical, and spiritual needs!
I’d like to share some of my favorite quotes about love :).
"We cannot choose whom we will love if we claim to be Christians." ~Anonymous
"Law makes us act from outward compulsion, but love makes us serve from inward compassion." ~Unknown
"Love is the doorway through which man passes from selfishness to service." ~Unknown
"True love begins when nothing is looked for in return." ~Antoine De Saint-Exupery

Dear Heavenly Father, we’re forever grateful for Your extravagant love for us! Please fill our hearts with Your love and make it overflow from us to touch the lives of those we meet and draw them to You. Please help us to love others like Jesus does...unconditionally, selflessly, and sacrificially! In Jesus’s Name, I pray. Amen!
