Luke 6:32 (love begins at home)

11 Sep Luke 6:32 (love begins at home)

* Welcome God every morning before work by taking ~5 min to read this Living In Faith Exchange (LIFE) Group devotion (, which has snippets from Living Faith ( All whatsoever you do in word or in work, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ. Col. 3:17

For if you love those who love you, what credit is that to you? Luke 6:32

Living Faith snippets: “We can easily think of people who don’t love us: strangers on the street; people we work with; those we encounter briefly and casually in the course of our day; neighbors next door or across the street; and, most tellingly, the people with whom we share a home and sometimes don’t act like they love us, even spouses and children. Jesus makes it plain that the only place you can find him is in the real world among all those people who don’t actually qualify as enemies but who, we know darn well, do not love us.” by Mitch Finley

Rich’s comments: Mother Teresa said in her Nobel Peace Prize acceptance speech in 1979, “Love begins at home.” Please read Mother Teresa’s entire speech at I believe that you don’t have to travel far to serve God’s mission. It begins in your very own home. What if everyone in the world today decided to go home and love their family, and then went to their neighbors to share God’s love? I like to imagine that it would be similar to a rippling effect of droplets on the surface of water that would spread across the world; an all-consuming, shockwave of love. It has to begin with our families though; the primary unit of our society. Lord, help us to love as You love us. Amen.

* Prayer: Prayer connects us with God’s will & His miracles, thereby changing us & helping others. Wayne Watson lyrics, “When God’s people pray, there is hope reborn, there is sin forgiven, and miracles you can’t explain await!” “If you pray that God will move a mountain and He doesn’t, assume Christ wants you to climb it instead & see Him.”
* Defend the unborn: ‘Rescue those who are unjustly sentenced to death; don’t stand back and let them die’ (Prov 24:11). ‘Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you’ (Jer 1:5). ‘It is a great poverty that a child must die that you might lie as you wish’ Blessed Mother Teresa. Prayer to End Abortion. Ask Blessed Margaret of Castello for her prayers to end abortion.
* Evangelization: Let’s make room for non-believers (be a friend, make a friend, lead friend to Christ) and perpetual re-evangelization of self and those near us, by way of daily prayer (relationship) and following Christ’s example of selfless love, mercy, and service.
Let’s joyfully live out the Good News and gladly tell others about it (Mark 16:15)!
