A Big Ol’ Chunk of Love

February 17, 2010

Today at lunch Jonathan said to me, “Daddy, I love daddy more than I love mommy and I love mommy more than I love daddy.”  I said something like, “That’s interesting Jon, but I’m not quite sure what that means.”  He said, “It’s a chunk of love.  A big ol’ chunk of love.”

Gotta love it.  Where do kids get this stuff?

Bethel Grace, let there be a big ol’ chunk of love among us.  Let’s love one another.  By this all men will know that we are his disciples, if we love one another.  The Spirit desires to bear the fruit of love among us.  By this we know that Christ loved us, he laid down his life for us, and we ought to lay down our lives for one another.

Sometimes it will mean laughing together, other times weeping together.  Sometimes we laugh and weep at the same time.  It will mean thanking God for one another.  Sometimes it will mean bearing with one another.  Sometimes it will mean spurring each other.  It will mean forgiving when we hurt each other.  Sometimes it will mean going to Starbucks together, or the park together, or hanging out at our houses together.  It does not require sharing ice cream or milk with each other, but it will definately mean sharing fellowship in the Word together.  It will mean praying for each other.   It will mean spending time together.  Let’s love one another. 

Let’s make it a big ol’ chunk of love.
