Love People Not Things


 People were created to be loved

Things were created to be used

Think of how our world would be if everyone changed so that

Things were not being loved

And People were not being used.


People NOT things matter! It is not WHAT we have in our lives, but WHO we have in them that truly matters.

Why work so hard for the things we cannot keep. Why waste another dollar striving for one more thing. Is it worth the cost of everything else?  No matter how hard we work….”Things” cannot give us what people can.  We were created to LOVE.  Love others.  Not things.  A precious God given moment with someone cannot be bought or replaced.  So be careful how you view what is most important….   

Live fully in each happy given moment and just as fully when you are persevering through a test or trial.  Hold onto what is truly important.  Live your life with a priority to LOVE.  Love your God.  Love your family.  Love others.  Work to only further His kingdom.  Give to a greater cause.  Share your faith in the Lord.  Help others grow in their walk.  Trust Him to direct your steps towards someone who needs encouragement.  Hold a loved one’s hand.  Whisper sweet words of comfort to a friend. Hug your child or someone else’s.  Pray with or for a stranger.  Encourage others in their weak times.  Learn from those who are strong.  Share your testimony and experiences.  Remember moments are precious no matter what the circumstance. Give of your gifts, talents and time.  Make lasting connections.  Make a difference in the world because of LOVE.   

Live Life Loving Others!

1 Corinthians 13:13  And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the GREATEST of these is LOVE.
