THE INFLUENCE OF LOVE
You cannot influence people if you don’t love them.’ I heard this quote from Sunday’s message in church and it was a real eye-opener.
I looked back at the people who have influenced me in the past and those still influencing me now, those I influenced in the past and am still influencing and found one common denominator: love. The truth is that “normal” people naturally stay around people who love them. It is rare to desire to stay in the company of someone who constantly batters your self esteem. Except if you “have to.”
Have you ever come to a gathering and felt out of place because there were so many “cliques” there? How would you feel if someone in that gathering made you feel loved and accepted? You will of course look out for that person each time you come there.
In a world where love is so scarce, let us “single out” people who are hungry for love, let us show care to people we meet.
We can only touch people’s lives after we have touched their hearts.
Blessed Monday morning to you!
