Love that finds solutions

Adapted from an article published in The Christian Science Monitor, April 6, 2016.

Sometimes the extreme needs of people in war-torn or devastated areas bring forth unique solutions and amazing kindnesses. Some wonderful examples are in the editorial on the facing page.

An email recently came from a friend telling what she has experienced in helping people around the world: “I am just in awe of how freely God, divine Love, loves … whether it is a boy in Nepal being given an education through donations or little Syrian children being helped by a Kurd. How wondrous!” I knew that she was talking about the good that blesses one and all as we begin to see that God is Love (see I John 4:8). That, and the increased good we can do when we understand that God made us in His spiritual likeness—the reflection of divine Love.

A loving act can be seen as evidence of the love that God, who is good itself and the source of our goodness, has for His creation. What if we were to listen for God’s direction in our efforts to act with goodness? We might find that so much—in fact, all—is possible to God, divine Love, and to us as we follow Love’s leading.
