THE BEST MEDICINE IS LOVE
A country doctor said, I've been practicing medicine for over 30 years. During all those years I have prescribed many different things. But in the long run, I've learned that for most of what ails the human condition, the best medicine is love!”
“But, asked a student, what if it does not work?”
“Double the dose, came the quick reply.
Many have said that love is the greatest medicine in the world. It can do more to heal the sick than most medicines. It is holding someone's hand, shedding a tear with a broken heart, sitting quietly beside someone who is grieving.
Love is not an emotion that is based on a passing feeling. It comes from a compassionate heart that has experienced the conversion that God has provided for us through His Son. Love is something that is born of God and given by God.
Love is a gift. Take it and let it grow.
Love is a sign. Wear it and let it show.
Love is an act. Do it and let it go.
As we now come into the most scared of all Holidays, the Birth of our Saviour. Let us all take time
to acknowledge the love and peace in our lives and show the world we do have the gift of Love and Compassion.
Let it Show in Every Thing You Do This Holiday and All Year Long.
Father, we pray you fill our hearts, with Your love. May we overcome selfishness by living lives of service as Your Son, our Savior did. In His name. Amen.
Scripture for Today: 1 Corinthians 13:4-7 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.
