Chasing Contentment

Thursday, August 18

In my prayer time this evening, I was reading from Ephesians 5 (verses 1-2) in The Message, and I liked the way it was worded and wanted to post it here to remember later.
Watch what God does, and then you do it, like children who learn proper behavior from their parents. Mostly what God does is love you. Keep company with Him and learn a life of love. Observe how Christ loved us. His love was not cautious but extravagant. He didn't love in order to get something from us but to give everything of Himself to us. Love like that. (my own emphasis added)
What I want is a family, a circle of friends, a church, a community in which we are all (or at the most reasonable, most of us) striving to love like that.
