Athletes develop their sport skill through the treadmill of training. Learning how to train is the first step while consistent commitment to practicing makes it happen. By repeating it over and over again both their muscles and their minds memorize the required responses.
Just as the muscles of our bodies and the habits of our minds need repetition, so does the love in our hearts. First we receive God’s love which, in turn, enables us to genuinely give love to others…then repeat.
RECEIVE: “This is what real love is: It is not our love for God; it is God’s love for us. He sent his Son to die in our place to take away our sins.” I John 4:10
“Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God.” John 1:12
GIVE: “Let us love one another, for love is of God” I John 4:7
REPEAT: “We love because he first loved us.” I John 4:19
PRAYER: I open my heart to your love, Lord. Help me to share love with those I am near. I receive your love in preparation for giving love to others. Thank you for loving me.
RECEIVE LOVE. GIVE LOVE…THEN REPEAT!
