Summary: Today you will reinforce your reputation in one way or another. How might you reinforce the reality that God is Love through a singular action today?
John 13:34-35 says “A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another. By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.”
I am a student of people. People give clues about their emotional state or what they value. I notice when people who always wear contact lenses show up to a meeting wearing glasses; did they have a rough morning? I notice when normally gregarious people choose a more reserved posture. It registers to me when someone consistently and quietly removes dirty dishes from others. I notice the small things. Everyone is constantly communicating, though words may not ever be used.
Jesus says that love is a dead give-away that you are His follower. A constant aura of love and self-sacrifice is rare. Love provides an unmistakable clue. Reputation is earned through time + consistency of any behavior.
You have a reputation. You have earned it. Today you will reinforce your reputation one way or another. Is there a tangible way you can share love today? How might you reinforce the reality that God is Love through a singular action today?
