I watch the ripples a rock makes in the water. I ponder how each of us affects the other. Like ripples in the water our lives and the way we live it affects the next, then the next, then the next.
As they argued satan took over his thoughts and convinced him to kill her. She was the past wife and children’s mother, of someone close to me. Her boyfriends actions caused pain and despair to one person… then the next… then the next… all the way to me. I mourn, because the one I love, mourns.
When we are hateful to someone it flows down the line. When we cut someone off in traffic it causes them to be rude to the next. When we ignore the person in our path, it causes loneliness and in turn makes them ignore the next . But when we are kind, when we love, that light shines thru the person in front of us on to the next, then the next, then the next. When we plant seeds… seeds of hope… seeds of love… seeds of kindness… they grow. They grow and at some point they provide love and hope to many more. Like ripples in the water the kindness and love we display to others spreads out in even circles and produces infinite joy. Look what the life of our Savior did and that was 2000 years ago. Let’s see how many love ripples we can make per day. Colossians 3:12 (MSG)
I LOVE YOU!
